Sykes Law Firm represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of civil claims. We bring significant experience and skill to all aspects of dispute resolution, including pre-trial negotiations, mediation and trial.


Some common types of civil litigation cases we handle include:


  • Contract disputes

  • Contested divorce/custody

  • Insurance claims and coverage

  • Creditor debt lawsuits

  • Real estate litigation

  • Discrimination

  • Small business litigation


Disputes/conflicts are a fact of life and incidental to conducting business in a competitive market. If you are faced with a dispute that can’t be resolved by negotiation, a lawsuit may be necessary. Once a lawsuit is filed with the courts, the process becomes formalized and involuntary. Litigation should be a final option—only after a comprehensive and diligent effort has been made, in good faith, to settle the matter.


Having an experienced and dedicated lawyer on your side from the start, is critical to maximizing your chances to settle and avoid unnecessary and expensive litigation. The Sykes Law Firm’s trial practice and dispute-resolution group represents small to mid-size businesses, as well as individuals. If you are facing a lawsuit or embroiled in a dispute, call us at (845) 406-1386. We are ready and prepared to represent you to the fullest.
