Committed to Justice, Committed to Your Rights
An Experienced and Proven Indianapolis Contingency Fee Attorney
Pavlack Law represents people and businesses in civil litigation. We are dedicated to helping individuals and businesses who have been physically injured, wrongfully discharged or underpaid by an employer, victimized by abusive consumer or insurance practices, or wronged by a breach of contract or other improper business tactic.
Our guiding philosophy is to efficiently and aggressively handle your case so you can get back to what is important to you. We usually work on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay us for our services unless we recover for you; but we also provide services on flat-fee, hourly, and mixed hourly/contingency arrangements. We are highly tech-savvy, and use it to our advantage in all facets of our representation, from case management to courtroom and jury presentations. If you are in need of legal services, you deserve to have a top attorney on your side. Contact our Indianapolis practice today to set up a consultation.
We have extensive experience representing plaintiffs in a variety of civil lawsuits. We have helped people injured by another’s negligence put their lives back together, advocated for thousands of victims of price-fixing in class action antitrust cases, represented employees when their employers failed to pay them proper wages, and helped businesses in contract disputes.
Our experience and past successes include representing people and businesses in many types of civil litigation, including:
Personal Injury – If you suffered injuries through someone’s carelessness or intentional acts, you are entitled to damages under the law. We steadfastly pursue claims for the physical and emotional damages you have suffered. Such injuries are commonly the result of: car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, ATV accidents, slip-and-fall, defective or dangerous products, nursing home abuses, exposure to toxic material, medical malpractice, dangerous or defective drugs, work-related incidences, and wrongful death. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, damage or loss of property, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other monetary losses.
Class Action and Products Liability – Class action lawsuits allow multiple parties or businesses with claims against the same defendant to join forces to seek damages for abuses. We have a wealth of experience handling all types of class action cases, including price-fixing and other types of antitrust violations, consumer fraud, bad faith insurance practices, predatory lending, environmental disasters, and investment and securities fraud.
Employment Discrimination and Wage Claims – State and federal laws provide protections from discrimination on the basis of gender, age, race, religious affiliation, or disability. If you were fired, denied employment, or subjected to a hostile work environment due to one of these factors, you may have a claim against your employer. We also have represented a number of workers who were underpaid wages or commissions, including claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and similar state laws such as the Indiana Wage Payment Act and Indiana Wage Claim Act. If the employer's wrongful practices affect many workers, it is often possible to join together to pursue a collective action or class action lawsuit to seek redress for these harms.
Business, Contract, and Complex Disputes – We have represented many businesses in all facets of contract and other disputes, ranging from smaller, run-of-the-mill contract disagreements to multi-million dollar distribution and intellectual property deals. We understand and respect that, for most businesses, lawyers and litigation are a last resort. If you’ve reached the point that you need to “lawyer up,” an attorney from our Indianapolis practice can help.
Appeals – We have a great deal of experience in working cases through the appellate process and are ready to help you or any attorney in need of more experienced appellate guidance.
