General Litigation

General Litigation

The Law Office of Ruth Ann Azeredo, LLC has been representing clients in litigation for close to twenty years.  We have brought or defended cases in federal courts, state courts, administrative hearings, and in arbitration throughout Maryland, and in Washington D.C., Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina, among other states.

When individuals or businesses are involved in disagreements or disputes and are unable to resolve them among themselves, they may need to adjudicate their dispute(s), be it in an administrative hearing, arbitration, or court.   Though litigation can be a lengthy, complicated, and expensive process, having a staunch legal advocate to represent you is important.

Though we are prepared to take a matter through litigation, we are mindful of a client’s overall goals.  For that reason, we constantly assess and reassess where we are in litigation, what steps should be taken, where vulnerabilities for each side exist, and what we can do to maximize a positive result. 

We value our commitment and candor to our clients.

As with all litigation, the potential to settle the dispute remains at the forefront.
