Small Claims & District Court
Any dispute under $5000 is almost always not worth hiring an attorney. Small Claims courts across the state have clear rules and guidance for folks to represent themselves regarding disputes under $5000 total.
Litigation can also be relatively small District Courts for disputes up to $25,000 in controversy. Lawyers can and often represent clients in District Court disputes. District Court is faster and less formal and does not provide for a jury to determine your case.
Disputes over amounts of money over $5000 need a specific evaluation to determine if the attorney’s fees to pursue are justified by the likely results.

unfavorable District Court rulings and business break-ups or any contract dispute over $25,000 is heard in Circuit Court.
