Practice Areas

Will, Estate and Trust Litigation

Most attorneys who concentrate some or all of their practice in the will, estate, and trust fields have not developed a parallel concentration in the fields of litigation and dispute resolution. Over the years, Schmidt & Barbrow, PC has been able to help these attorneys serve their clients when litigation efforts are required.

Practice Areas

Commercial Litigation

In the commercial world, disputes often arise during the course of business. For example, two parties often have different viewpoints over the meaning of a contract. Other times, an outside party fails to uphold their end of an agreement. In either case, it is important to have a strong commercial litigation lawyer in your corner to ensure your interests are protected.

Practice Areas

Appellate Law and Practice

When a case has been litigated, and a decision is rendered, that is not always the final verdict. When one party is not satisfied with the decision, they have the option to appeal to a higher court. If you are involved in either pursuing or defending an appeal, it is important to work with a skilled appellate law and practice attorney, so your rights are fully protected.

Practice Areas

Insurance Coverage and Litigation

Insurance - the bringing together of people and resources to share the cost of protecting against risk – is essential in everyday life. Experienced insurance coverage attorneys can help protect your interests when disputes arise over coverage and an insurer's duty to defend.

Creative and Practical Resolutions from Experienced Attorneys

When you have a legal dispute, litigation is not always the best way to resolve the issue. Litigation can be costly, protracted, and often counter-productive. Our lawyers are highly skilled litigators, but we are also strong negotiators with in-depth knowledge of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as arbitration and mediation. In fact, one of our attorneys was first appointed an arbitrator in the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Court in DuPage County in 1997. When we analyze a case, we take into account all pertinent factors and explore all available legal avenues to determine the best path forward to a positive resolution.
