An Experienced Trial Lawyer For Civil Litigation Cases
Litigation is never ideal, but it’s sometimes unavoidable. When you’re faced with litigation, whether in an individual or business capacity, having a strong legal ally is essential for a successful outcome.
At The Law Offices of Colin A. Hardacre, APC, I provide skilled and strategic representation in civil litigation. I’m a strong trial lawyer with more than 15 years of experience. Because I also practice in criminal law, I spend a great deal of time in the courtroom. Not every litigator has that advantage.
Pursuing A Positive Resolution In Civil And Business Disputes
I handle cases involving business litigation such as:
- Disputes between business partners
- Disputes involving investors, managers and officers
- Claims involving breach of fiduciary duty
- Contract disputes
- Shareholder disputes, including derivative suits
Based in Calabasas, I handle lawsuits throughout the Los Angeles area in both state and federal courts.
Protecting Your Interests And Your Resources
Nobody wants to tie up their time and resources in unnecessary litigation. My goal in every case is to resolve the underlying issues as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Whenever possible, I pursue avenues such as arbitration and mediation as a vehicle for favorably resolving disputes outside of court. I’m highly experienced in both of those forums.
When litigation becomes necessary, I have a wealth of trial experience that I leverage to protect my clients’ interests. I am highly skilled in navigating:
- Motion practice
- Jury selection
- Rules of Evidence and Rules of Civil Procedure (state and federal)
Additionally, I handle appeals in both the California appellate courts as well as the federal 9th and 6th Circuit Courts of Appeal.
