Dungan & LeFevre’s Civil Litigation Practice Group provides litigation services to companies and individuals in a variety of legal areas and venues. Our attorneys have experience in both federal and state courts throughout the United States, but most of our civil litigation practice is based in Ohio. Our attorneys are admitted to practice in the state and federal courts of Ohio and the United States Sixth, Fourth, and Third Circuit Courts of Appeals. We offer our clients a wealth of experience in the law and in the courts in which we practice, as well as a passion to use that experience to help our clients solve their problems. We know the courts, their personnel, and the population from which jury pools are drawn.

- Business/Financial/Contract Disputes

Today, successful litigation often involves investigation and proper handling of electronically stored information. Gone are the days of the paper-only world. For a modestly-sized firm, Dungan & LeFevre offers its clients electronic discovery expertise that typically is only found in large law firms, but at a small firm price. Steve Justice, the partner in charge of our Civil Litigation Practice Group has expertise with all aspects of electronic discovery. He is a member of the Sedona Conference (national think-tank for electronic discovery issues and practices), and he formerly chaired the electronic discovery committee of a large regional law firm.
In sum, when it is necessary to litigate, Dungan & LeFevre offers big firm litigation expertise at a small firm price. We strive, however, to minimize the risk of litigation for our clients. Our attorneys work with our clients to assess potential problem areas and to develop strategies to comply with the contractual requirements or with the laws and regulations that apply to their businesses in order to minimize litigation risks.
