Aurora chancery litigation attorney

Lawyers for Special Remedies in State and Federal Courts in Wheaton, DuPage County, and the Greater Chicago Area

There are many situations where legal disputes may need to be resolved through civil litigation. While many of these cases are handled in traditional courts, some disputes may be addressed in chancery court. The legal procedures used in chancery court are different than in other courts, and these cases will generally be heard by a judge rather than a trial by jury. To make sure these types of cases are handled correctly, it is important to secure representation from an attorney who has experience in chancery litigation.

In many cases, legal disputes involving individuals or businesses will seek to recover money that is owed or compensation for damages caused by one party to another. However, disputes that are heard in chancery court will usually involve issues other than monetary demands. Instead, they may involve requests that the court require a person to meet certain obligations, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract.

In addition to helping address contract disputes, we can assist with other matters that may be heard in chancery court, such as guardianships, probate and contested estates, trust litigation, and business or partnership dissolution. We help our clients understand the potential remedies that may be available in their individual situations, and we provide representation when arguing cases before a judge.

  • Injunctions
  • Specific performance
  • Actions in accounting
  • Rescission and reformation of contracts
