Civil Litigation

The term civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is known as a litigator or trial lawyer. Several common types of civil litigation include environmental law, housing law, products liability, intellectual property, labor and employment, and antitrust.

Criminal Law

Crimes are usually categorized as felonies or misdemeanors based on their nature and the maximum punishment that can be imposed. A felony involves serious misconduct that is punishable by death or by imprisonment for more than one year. Crimes that do not amount to felonies are misdemeanors or violations. Lesser offenses, such as traffic and parking infractions, are often called violations and are considered a part of criminal law. Our 40 years of combined experience in Criminal Law are available to you through our firm.

Personal Injury/Wrongful Death

Typically, personal injury claims are the result of the negligence of another person. A personal injury claim, by definition, DOES include claims for the death of a family member by wrongful means (wrongful death claims).

I just wanted to take some time and thank Tom Plofchan and the entire Westlakes Legal Group once again for all the help each one of you provided during the duration of my case. The teams expertise truly shows why the firm is truly the "Best of the Best".

Your money is well spent hiring Mr. Plofchan. I was facing serious life changing penalties, and a commonwealth attorney who was well prepared. Mr. Plofchan and Daniel Griffith were able to get the Refusal thrown out under a technicality, and prepared a strong enough case, so that the commonwealth was willing to drop the DUI (3rd) to a Reckless Driving.

Thomas Plofchan is an incredible defense lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone. He was able to get all all charges dismissed in General District Court through a carefully planned and aggressive defense. He was very well prepared and efficiently

My case was in traffic court where I felt I was wrongfully charged so I retained the services of Tom Plofchan. Tom is also a friend of mine and I had heard nothing, but positive recommendations from others that had used his services so I knew he was the one to hire.


Westlake Legal Group N.B. Home

Dealing with legal issues are stressful, especially when it is your first time. Throw innocent minors into that situation and you have an extremely sensitive and anxiety-ridden situation on your hands. Jason Collins was extremely patient and worked very close with my family. He was on top of his game both in and out of the courtroom...

Jennifer Guida was wonderful to work with! Staff was very professional. I highly recommend anyone who needs a lawyer to seek her out!
