In any relationship, disputes are inevitable.  Although it may be possible, depending on your unique set of circumstances, to avoid going to court, it is always a good idea to be prepared.  The most effective litigation stems from obtaining lawyers who are not only skilled in oral advocacy and negotiation, but who are committed to understanding your case.
