LITIGATION & DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Tough disputes call for the right legal team – one with the insight and tenacity to get you results. Aggressive and effective representation can help protect your assets, obtain compensation or damages from a business or individual, resolve a contract dispute and more.
When conflict arises, emotions run high. But often it is best for all sides to recognize that litigation is a long and expensive process and an amicable negotiated solution, whether through mutual agreement or mediation, is preferable. Our attorneys can help you reach a satisfactory result, while controlling time and costs in your favor.
Not all disagreements can be resolved through negotiation. When these situations arise, Theus Law Offices will provide comprehensive, experienced and zealous legal representation. Whether a plaintiff or defendant, our attorneys will handle your case from beginning to end, including the initial case evaluation, engaging experts, negotiating claims and representing you in court.
The law imposes strict and sometimes harsh time limitations on the right to assert a claim. As such, it is imperative that you consult an attorney as soon as an issue arises in order to protect your interests. Do not delay.
While our attorneys have a wide range of litigation experience and are always up for a new challenge, we often lend our specialized knowledge of business / estate matters to the areas of litigation set forth below.
Winning your case is always the objective, but the real reward is justice and there is nothing greater when the legal system works properly. With decades of experience litigating and resolving civil and commercial disputes, our successful track record speaks volumes.

Claims By Individuals Against Financial Advisors and Brokerage Firms
Theus Law Offices represents individuals who have suffered damages as a result of wrongdoing by a financial advisor or brokerage firm. Such wrongdoing may include failure to supervise, churning, unsuitability of investments, unauthorized or excessive trading, theft, self-dealing, or any number of other misdeeds. Filing and prosecuting a claim against a brokerage firm or financial advisor is often governed by rules and procedures that do not apply in ordinary civil proceedings.
Claims Financial Advisors Against Former Employers
Theus Law Offices represents financial advisors in disputes with their current or former brokerage firm. Many of these cases involve financial advisors who leave their firm after which a former firm may attempt to collect a forgivable loan or the cost of training. Proper representation can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in attempted collections.

Winning or losing at the trial court level is often not the end of the story. In some instances, an appeal is expected regardless of the outcome in the lower court, so it is best to approach a trial with an eye toward the appeal.
Appeals often involve difficult and novel issues of law that require a different set of legal skills than what is typically successful at the trial court level. Winning on appeal often requires a higher level of insight and focus to identify and narrow the real issues for appeal – and to present those issues effectively.
It is not uncommon to engage separate appellate counsel after a lower court ruling. However, there is a very limited window to act to preserve your rights on appeal, so do not delay.
Regardless of the outcome in the lower court, our team of experienced attorneys will provide insightful, focused and effective representation on appeal.
