Lawsuits in Arizona

The attorneys at Gunderson, Denton & Peterson are experienced in handling lawsuits in Arizona. We can handle lawsuits in most areas of law including commercial law, employment law, probate and trust related law as well as appellate law.

Our lawyers have assisted clients both in responding to lawsuits as defendants and prosecuting claims as plaintiffs. Whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant, the first thing we do is evaluate the needs of your case and your goals. Some cases call for a strategy of turning over every stone because victory is absolutely essential. In others, a more cost-effective approach is appropriate. Your case deserves, and will receive, the careful attention that is appropriate.

Our attorneys are experienced with the prosecution or defense of lawsuits in the Maricopa County Superior Court and Justice Courts, other Arizona counties´┐Ż Superior Courts and Justice Courts, the Arizona Court of Appeals, the Arizona Supreme Court, the Arizona Bankruptcy Court and the Arizona District Court.

In order to avoid a formal lawsuit, you may be able to resolve your legal issue through mediation or arbitration. Our lawyers have also represented many clients in both mediation and arbitration conferences. We are careful to define our client's goals before proceeding with mediation, to ensure that it is the best avenue toward a successful resolution of the case. Not all cases are suitable for mediation. We can assist you to decide whether participation in mediation or arbitration is advisable in your particular case, always considering your long-term goals. Mediation or arbitration is almost always a more cost-effective approach to settle your dispute.

If mediation is not an option in your case, our firm has the experience to handle the lawsuit in court on your behalf. Our attorneys have years of successful experience with lawsuits in Arizona representing both plaintiffs and defendants.

For clients who are being sued, our attorneys can file the answer to a complaint or file other appropriate documents with the court. We can advise you on the legal options available to best respond to the claims made against you. We can help you file counterclaim, third-party complaint or other necessary pleadings that limit your exposure when appropriate.

For clients who wish to prosecute their claims in court by filing a lawsuit, our attorneys can draft the complaint and its accompanying documents. We can pursue all options available in court or provide more cost-effective approaches depending on your needs and goals.

If you want to file a lawsuit or you were served with a complaint and summons, call us now for a free telephone consultation. We will assist you in determining your best options.
