Litigation and Legal Consulting
and Dispute Resolution
Serving Alpharetta, the Metropolitan Atlanta Area, and the State of Georgia
We have handled a variety of cases for individuals and small business owners, while representing both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration. Many of our litigation cases have involved breach of contract, business torts, negligence, partnership/shareholder disputes and corporate "divorces", trademark violations, unfair competition and deceptive trade practices, defamation, construction disputes, and real estate disputes. Please contact us to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your litigation needs.
Obtaining the assistance of counsel on the front end can reduce the risk of a lawsuit and provide more control over potential outcomes. We work with clients to advise on a variety of general business issues to reduce potential litigation risks, including review of contracts and drafting of contract forms, policy review, responses to customer complaints, and compliance issues such as contractors and suppliers complying with applicable lien statutes for construction work and materials. Please contact us to discuss scheduling an initial consultation to discuss your business needs.
When you consider entering into a contract, it is always best to have an attorney review and provide input before you sign so you are aware what you are getting into, the risks moving forward, and can choose to adjust your behavior accordingly to avoid disputes. An attorney can also assist in trying to negotiate alternative terms. We have a detailed, analytical approach to contract review. We strive to consider all facets of a situation to anticipate possible negative consequences down the road and are open to creative, innovative approaches to meet clients' needs. Please contact us to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your contract needs.
At The Ewing Firm, we put our many years of broad litigation experience to use helping others resolve their disputes. Melissa Ewing is qualified and trained in dispute resolution along with roster membership on approved lists in several state courts. Mediation allows parties to have a say in the outcome of their dispute in a way that can save time and costs, provide certainty, and allow for creative solutions that may not be available through the court process. Also, more and more courts are recognizing the benefit of mediation and requiring parties to participate in mediation before proceeding to trial. Please contact us to discuss scheduling a mediation.
At The Ewing Firm, we use our experience to represent individuals and small business owners in Alpharetta, the metropolitan Atlanta area, and throughout the State of Georgia in civil matters including business and general litigation and construction and real estate disputes. Along with litigation services, we offer contract review and drafting, research and case assessments, and general corporate consulting services. We offer a client-based approach and outstanding service tailored to the specific needs of each client and situation rather than a canned approach.
