Fierce advocacy. Diligent representation. Proven results.

When you find yourself facing litigation, we’re here for you

The path from lawsuit to litigation to settlement isn’t a straight line. It’s a complicated set of factors, but we have the trial experience and the perspective necessary to get the best possible results, and we have a track record of settlements and wins to prove it. And unlike with larger firms, each member of our staff plays an integral role in your case. We’re not in this to make ourselves look good, or to chase billable hours – bottom line, we’re here to get the best possible result for you, our client.

Drawing on our vast experience, we can help you with all types of general civil litigation in state and federal courts, including:

  • Business litigation
  • Breach of contracts
  • Property damage
  • Personal injury claims
  • Insurance claims
  • Construction litigation
  • Consumer litigation
  • Products liability
  • Product defects
  • Torts

Although most civil disputes settle out of court, we have the skill and experience to go to trial when necessary and fight to uphold your rights.

If you have been injured in a car, motorcycle, truck, ATV, boat or pedestrian-related accident, we can help.

Civil Defense Attorney - San Luis Obispo

Strong advocacy for California clients at every stage

As your advocates in a landlord-tenant dispute, medical malpractice action, employment dispute, or any other kind of civil suit, we represent your interests through every stage of your case, which may include:

  • Investigation
  • Pleadings
  • Discovery
  • Pre-trial proceedings
  • Settlement or trial
  • Appeal

The discovery phase of your case will likely be the most time-consuming. At this stage, information is exchanged in the form of depositions (oral questions) and interrogatories (written questions) involving the parties to the suit and subpoenas if information is requested from a third party.

Most lawsuits don’t involve all of these stages, however: most are settled before ever reaching the courtroom. If settling your case early on will achieve the best result, we will explain why we believe it is better to settle than pursue lengthy litigation. But if protracted litigation is the only solution to achieve the proper outcome, we are ready to fight on your behalf. Our professional courtroom demeanor and meticulous preparation give us an edge as a strategic advocate.

Tardiff & Saldo Law Offices is located in Avila Beach, California and represents clients throughout California in civil litigation.
