What is civil litigation exactly?
Unlike a criminal case, civil litigation involves a claim between parties seeking monetary damages or “specific performance,” a court order requiring the defendant to take specific action (e.g. providing services under a contract) in lieu of paying financial damages. At Jones, Gregg, Creehan & Gerace, we regularly guide clients through all phases of litigation.
Our trial lawyers utilize discovery materials to identify weaknesses in the other side’s case and rely on the latest technology, including ediscovery to recover electronic communications (emails, text messages, website content, social media posts). We also collaborate with a respected network of investigators and financial professionals to collect and analyze digital evidence.
While we are frequently able to resolve cases without going to court, our trial-ready preparedness gives us an advantage in settlement negotiations. When litigation becomes necessary, we work to present convincing evidence and make compelling arguments to achieve the best results. In the event of an unfavorable outcome, we will determine if there is a legal basis for an appeal.

Pittsburgh Personal Injury Litigation Attorneys
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident due to the negligent or reckless conduct of another party, our experienced personal injury lawyers can help. We have extensive experience handling injury claims arising from:
- Automobile accidents

No two injury cases are alike, however, you may be entitled to compensation that includes economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages cover your actual financial losses (e.g medical expenses, lost wages) while noneconomic damages are designed to compensate you for pain and suffering, disability, emotional harm, and other intangible losses.
Although injury claims can typically be resolved through negotiated settlements with insurance companies, we are prepared to litigate when necessary to help you recover the maximum compensation you deserve.
