Litigation

Clients facing litigation require cost efficient representation, preventive counseling, responsive lawyers, and attention to detail. The litigation team at Furey, Doolan & Abell, understand and meet these client needs every day.

We a handle a wide range of complex as well as routine civil litigation, including cases involving family law and guardianship, business disputes, employment contracts, commercial transactions, construction and real estate contracts, commercial leases, and commercial landlord/tenant actions.

The litigation of estate- and trust-related disputes is a particular area of focus within the litigation practice. Matters in this area include disputes over the validity, proper interpretation and administration of wills and trusts; fiduciary investments; fiduciary compensation; and complex guardianship issues. Our attorneys are well-versed in the distinct procedural rules and substantive law governing estate and trust disputes, and have been recognized as expert witnesses in the appropriate conduct and compensation of fiduciaries.

Our attorneys practice in the federal and state courts of Maryland and the District of Columbia, and have a deep understanding of the court system and trial process. We also strive, where appropriate, to accomplish our clients’ goals through mediation and negotiated settlements.
