Indiana Civil Litigation Needs to Be Taken Seriously

Civil lawsuits shouldn’t be taken lightly. They can consume considerable amounts of time, energy, emotion and financial resources. Their outcome may affect you for years and cause a serious blow to your finances, which is why you should trust us to help you through the process.

If you find yourself involved in a legal dispute, what should do you do? Where should you go? Whether you have been sued and are the defendant or you need to protect your legal rights and interests by becoming a plaintiff and filing a lawsuit suit against another party, you may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of litigation.

You need an ally who excels in providing these services:

  • Educating you about important issues
  • Keeping you informed throughout the process
  • Providing you with advice and wise counsel
  • Aggressively advocating on your behalf
  • Working with you to craft a cost-effective, efficient and successful strategy to bring your matter to a positive resolution.

We Help Our Clients with a Variety of Indiana Civil Litigation Matters

Some of the issues we help our clients with include:

  • Will and probate administration. You or a family member may want to challenge the Will of a deceased family member because you feel he or she was not competent when it was executed or it was the result of undue influence by another party. Or you may feel that an estate is not being managed properly by an executor or administrator, that the intent of the deceased is not being carried out or the estate’s resources are being wasted or stolen.
  • Guardianship proceedings. These cases involve the question of whether a person is competent to care for themselves and their finances; if not, who should be the guardian to look after the person? If the person is competent, we can defend their rights in the matter. We also represent family members who fear for the safety of their loved one and seek a guardianship to protect them and their finances.
  • Family law matters. These can be highly emotionally charged situations whose end results can cause years of frustration, anger and financial losses if they are not properly handled. McNeely Stephenson handles all family law litigation matters for our clients to protect their interests and the interests of their children.
  • Real estate law. If you are a property owner and want to exercise your rights, or if you feel a government entity or an adjacent or nearby property owner is infringing on your property rights, we can represent you in litigation to defend your rights and protect your interests. We also help those in disputes involving the lease or sale of property.
