A Singular Focus On Civil Cases
There was a time – a simpler time – when many lawyers were in “general practice,” which means they took on whatever cases came through the door. Today, outside of small towns and out-of-the-way places, it is rare to find lawyers in general practice. The world, and the practice of law, simply have grown too complex. In order to do a good job for clients in today’s world, lawyers must narrow their focus.
At The Schaps Law Office, our focus is on civil litigation. This means we generally do not work on criminal cases or matters such as estate planning or real estate transactions that do not constitute litigation. (“Litigation” can be defined as lawsuits, arbitrations, and negotiations that might lead to a lawsuit or arbitration.) As mentioned elsewhere on this website, many of the cases we handle can be described as business disputes, personal injury cases, and appeals. But these three categories make up only a part of our caseload.
Representing Clients In Civil Disputes Of All Kinds
At The Schaps Law Office, we regularly represent clients in a broad range of civil disputes. A small sample of the types of civil cases we work on includes:
- Will and trust challenges
- Elder abuse cases
- Property disputes
- Contract disputes
- Employment claims
- Disability claims
We also represent U.C. Davis students in school disciplinary matters. Handling a broader range of civil cases allows us to help a broader range of clients.
