Civil Litigation

Attorney Peter G. DeGelleke has a wide range of experience in most types of civil litigation, representing both plaintiffs and defendants, with claims involving breach of contract, Chapter 93A (Consumer Protection Act) violations, collections, real estate disputes, contested wills, business litigation, personal injury, professional malpractice, and many other issues.

Attorney DeGelleke believes that a client considering litigation needs to know all of the potential consequences of filing suit - financial as well as emotional. For the client, litigation can be very expensive, time-consuming and stressful. The extent of the cost can be difficult to predict as it largely depends on the tactics employed by the opposition as well as by excessive wasted time and delay caused by the underfunded court system.

Since 1977, Attorney DeGelleke prides himself on never hearing a client say, "Why didn't you tell me before we filed suit how much time or money this litigation could take".

For matters outside the realm of litigation, Attorney DeGelleke works with lawyers who specialize in other practice areas, including family law (divorce) estate planning (wills and trusts) and real estate purchase and sales.
