Civil Litigation Lawyer in Rapid City SD & Sioux Falls SD

People interact with each other everyday. We share the roadways with one another; we buy and sell with one another; and we work and play together. Sometimes people get hurt, misunderstandings arise, promises are broken, and disputes follow. Lawyers who practice civil litigation represent the parties to resolve such disputes by agreement or trial. If we can help you resolve your case fairly and efficiently without a trial, we will. But if not, Bangs-McCullen’s experienced trial attorneys will prepare your case for trial, and fight to see that justice is done.  We have a reputation for results, both in the courtroom and through mediation and arbitration.  For us, litigation is about real people and real problems – and we are there when it matters most.
