Civil Litigation

Virginia Civil Litigation Lawyers


Unlike criminal cases brought by the government (whether that be the Commonwealth of Virginia or the U.S. Justice Department), civil claims are brought by an individual or an entity. Civil litigation commences when the plaintiff files a lawsuit against the defendant, seeking compensation for damages the defendant caused.

The attorneys at Taylor, Taylor & Taylor, Inc. have provided top-notch representation to those in need of assistance with civil matters for almost 30 years. We have the knowledge and resources to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case. Contact us today for a consultation to discuss your case and evaluate your legal options.

Below, we will discuss common types of civil litigation that our attorneys handle:

  • Divorce and Family Law – Navigating divorce and family legal issues can be challenging and emotionally taxing. Not only are these issues sensitive, but the law surrounding them can get complicated. Our attorneys work hard to provide sound legal counsel to our clients, safeguard their parenting and property rights, advocate for their interests, and expedite the process as a whole.

  • Equitable Claims  – An individual may request a court order against another party through an equitable claim, such as a restraining or reprieve order. These orders may legally prevent a person or entity from taking a specific action or, conversely, require them to perform a particular action. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with state laws surrounding equitable claims and can help you attain positive results in your case.

  • Property Disputes – Property disputes typically occur between neighbors when they cannot agree on the line between their properties. If both neighbors believe that they are the rightful owners of a particular piece of property, that would be considered a property dispute. Property disputes can also occur if a person damages their neighbor’s property. If you are in the midst of a property dispute, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney. Our attorneys are adept at defending your right to your property.

  • Contract Disputes – When someone cannot fulfill their legal obligation after signing a contract, disputes can arise between that individual and others who signed the contract. In some cases, contract disputes may occur because the terms outlined in the agreement were poorly articulated. However, contract disputes arise in most cases because a signer doesn’t have sufficient physical or financial assets to follow through with their commitment. If you are dealing with a contract dispute, our attorneys can help.

  • Landlord/Tenant Issues – Landlord and tenant disputes are unfortunately common. For example, if a landlord decides to keep a tenant’s security deposit for repairs, cleaning, or other costs, the tenant may dispute it, leading to civil litigation. We also handle eviction-related disputes. Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, you may not know all your legal rights in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our attorneys are well-versed in the state laws that apply to landlord and tenant relationships and have the resources to help you reach the best possible outcome in your case.

  • Obtain/Enforce Judgements – Our attorneys have the skills to help our clients obtain and enforce judgments that a court has rendered. For example, if you have been awarded compensation for losses you suffered due to an injury, wrongful death, or another issue, actually receiving that compensation might be more complicated than you think. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure you benefit from the judgment issued by the court.

  • Execute Garnishments – Wage garnishment is a common way for creditors to collect on a debt owed by a debtor. A worker’s wages can be garnished if a court authorizes a creditor to freeze the debtor’s bank account and collect from the debtor until the debt is fully paid off. Our attorneys can help creditors execute wage garnishments against those who owe them money.
