Michigan Litigation Lawyers

At Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC, we serve our clients best by trying to avoid litigation, where possible, through early intervention and counsel. However, if necessary, our experienced attorneys have the trial, appellate, and collective bargaining experience needed to defend our clients’ interests.

Our skilled attorneys have decades of experience providing full-service litigation consulting and representation – from complaint to appeal – before all Michigan state and federal civil and administrative courts. Whether you are a business, franchisor, municipality, or public utility, our experienced litigation attorneys can help you efficiently address your litigative issues to an equitable and effective resolution.

Business Litigation

No business entity wants to be involved in litigation, but this is sometimes the only way to assert your rights. Our business lawyers have resolved contractual disagreements, employment contract and termination cases, trademarks and other intellectual property arguments, franchise agreement disputes, and more. If a civil suit has threatened your business, we will be your advocate in the courtroom and at your side to guide you through the complex judicial system with expertise and confidence.

Municipal Litigation

The attorneys at Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC work with municipalities and departments of all sizes to successfully litigate land use and zoning issues, property disputes and easements, property tax claims and appeals, Michigan Drain Code and lake level issues, nuisance abatement, and more. We also assist in the awareness and preparation for issues relating to Downtown Development Authorities, Community Mental Health Authorities, Emergency Services Authorities, and Local Finance Development Authorities. With in-depth knowledge of municipal cases and years of experience with procedural and substantive law, our team of attorneys will review and discuss your case to alleviate uncertainty and confusion and present your case accurately and efficiently.

Franchise Dispute Resolution and Litigation

A contractual agreement between franchisor and franchisee is usually intended to produce benefits to both parties. However, when one party does not hold up their end of the bargain, a dispute is often the result. When that happens, the franchise attorneys at Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC can help you identify and navigate the most efficient and fitting route of dispute resolution for your franchised business, including mediation, arbitration, or litigation.

Labor and Employment Collective Bargaining

The Michigan Employment Law Team at Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC is well-versed in dealing with all types of employer advocacy situations, including collective bargaining, unfair labor practices, wage and hour disputes, and more. Whether it is negotiating with major Michigan labor organizations, representing employers from discrimination and harassment disputes, or litigating overtime and comp time disputes, our attorneys have the legal knowledge and experience to successfully and efficiently maneuver through the situation to achieve the most equitable outcome for all parties involved.

Dedicated to serving your legal needs.

We have counseled and represented our clients in a variety of cases, and we will address yours with the same level of care, professionalism, and attention to detail. Let our team of attorneys review your specific case to identify the best approach to resolution. Contact us today for more information or to schedule a consultation to review your case.
