Civil Litigation

Our Firm represents clients throughout the State of Tennessee in a wide array of civil litigation cases, including breach of contracat, landlord-tenant, construction matters, and torts.  Recognizing the stress associated with litigation, the attorneys at Wise & Reeves strive to guide clients through the Court system by keeping them informed on their matters and advising them of the strengths and weaknesses of their position.

Wise & Reeves recognizes that litigation does not end with obtaining a judgement.  Post-judgment efforts are necessary to collect on the client's judgment.  Utilizing the many post-judgment options, the Firm pursues collections through discovery, bank levies, wage garnishments, and other legal remedies.
