Practice Areas

Litigation and Appeals

Appellate Law

Despite the diligence and wisdom of our trial court judges, many cases that go to trial result in some basis for appeal. Our attorneys regularly assist clients with appeals, by initiating an appeal when required or by defending a positive trial outcome from an appeal by the opposing party.

Auto and Truck Collision

Business Litigation

Business disputes come in all shapes and sizes, which means that Hartung Schroeder attorneys represent their clients in everything from small claims actions to highly complex lawsuits with claims valued in the tens-of-millions.

Class Action Litigation

American jurisprudence recognizes that individuals who have suffered even small economic harms, should have the opportunity of a remedy when that harm is also felt by others. A “Class action lawsuit” is a form of a lawsuit that allows one individual to bring a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group of people.

Commercial Litigation

Our trial and litigation strategies come from years of working in state and federal courts. Our track record includes a $40 million verdict in a class action lawsuit, recovery of tens of millions of dollars of securities through FINRA, and a number of six and seven-figure settlements and verdicts in commercial disputes and high-profile divorce actions.

Construction and Real Estate Litigation

Construction and real estate conflicts are an exceedingly complex area of the law, with disputes that often involve engineers, architects, tradesmen, expert witnesses, suppliers, manufacturers, and other parties. The evidence in these cases often involves extensive contracts, numerous plans and drawings, complex engineering and math, and nuances involving soil, water, or materials.
