Lawyers Serving North Dakota And Northwest Minnesota Since 1939

Experienced Legal Advocates In Litigated Civil Disputes

The American justice system is split into criminal and civil courts. Everything that isn’t strictly a criminal matter falls into the realm of civil law. That’s a very broad group of legal practice areas. At Ohnstad Twichell, P.C., we have a robust group of attorneys and plentiful resources to draw from to help protect your rights in civil court.

Whether you’ve been harmed by the actions of another person or entity – physically, financially or are being summoned to court by someone else,  our attorneys can help you seek the appropriate legal remedies.

Offering A Diverse Array Of Practice Areas Within Civil Litigation

Here are some of the legal matters our attorneys can help you with:

  • Contract disputes
  • Business and corporate law and litigation
  • Employment law (discrimination, harassment, etc.)
  • Personal injury claims
  • Landlord—tenant matters
  • Estate litigation
  • Debt collection
  • Securing mineral rights

If you aren’t sure whether we offer what you’re looking for, simply contact one of our offices to discuss your legal needs.

Does Every Matter Go To Trial?

Litigated disputes can go to trial, but they can also be resolved through a negotiated settlement ahead of trial. Many disputes are resolved this way, and settlement is often beneficial for both sides because it avoids the expense and uncertainty of trial.

If our attorneys can fairly and reasonably resolve your legal matter in a negotiated settlement, we will certainly do so (with your input, of course). If the other party is unwilling to negotiate or will not present a fair settlement offer, we will not hesitate to vigorously represent your interests in the courtroom.
