Civil Litigation

While my practice is primarily focused on appeals, I am associated with the Law Office of James Steele with locations in Roanoke and Petersburg which can handle matters involving Landlord-Tenant Disputes, Estate Planning for Simple Estates, and Bankruptcy.

Additionally, I work with many fine attorneys throughout Virginia on a variety of civil matters. I am happy to refer clients who are in need of representation at the trial level if I am not to assist them personally.

When involved in civil litigation, it is always important to keep the possibility of appeal in mind. By consulting with the trial attorney before a final order is entered, or even before the trial has been held, I can assure that a sound foundation will be laid for an appeal should one become necessary.
