Civil Litigation

Civil litigation occurs in a dispute between two or more companies or people who cannot resolve their differences and go to court, asking a judge or jury to settle the issue or establish liability. In a civil lawsuit, a wronged party seeks monetary compensation and/or a specific action or performance from the party who caused the wrong.

A lawyer who handles civil matters is called a trial attorney. At Spector Foerst & Associates, our legal team has represented countless clients in various legal dilemmas. Through these experiences and with the assistance of our network of specialized attorneys, we are able to guide you through almost any kind of legal conundrum.

Two members of our team specialize in civil litigation. Natalie Shafer has 17 years of experience as a trial attorney addressing the rights of injured parties to appropriate compensation. James Foerst is certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Attorney having represented 1000's of clients who have been injured as a result of someone else's negligence.

There is no question that lawsuits are costly, stressful and time-consuming. Working collaboratively and creatively, the Spector Foerst team strives to resolve your issue as quickly as possible, with a positive outcome, so that you can move on.
