Litigation occurs when two opposing parties have a dispute over a legal right. The litigation process is very complex and may take years to resolve. At Davis & Wojcik, we handle a variety of litigation including:
Real estate litigation: Most real estate disputes arise from the sell or transfer of real property, including residential and commercial real estate. Other disputes may include boundary disputes, easements, covenants and other rights affecting real property.
Business litigation: Business litigation involves every type of dispute that can arise in the business context, including breach of contract, partnership/joint venture disputes, class actions, business torts, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and misrepresentation, tortious interference, trade secrets, and shareholder issues.
Labor and employment litigation: California’s labor laws are complex and change frequently. Employment issues affect the livelihood and well-being of employees and the success of the employers for which they work. These employment disputes can be intensely personal. A Temecula employment attorney of Davis & Wojcik understands both sides of the conflict be we have represented both sides of the aisle.

Civil tort litigation: A “tort” is a civil wrong that causes loss or harm resulting in legal liability. Commonly litigated torts include fraud, conversion, defamation, trespass and negligence. Civil tort litigation can involve individuals, groups, businesses, or other entities.

Handicap accessibility defense: The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and California Unruh Act or Unruh Civil Rights Act, are civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities in public and private places that are open to the general public. Business and building owners are required to adhere to the strict guidelines of ADA or face significant penalties for noncompliance. ADA lawsuits have become so numerous that the state of California has placed restrictions on “high-frequency litigants.” At Davis & Wojcik, we help business defend against handicap accessibility lawsuits.
