Civil Litigation

Hafemann, Magee & Thomas has unique experience in a variety of civil litigation areas. We are particularly skilled in representing military servicemembers and military contractors. Our experience includes:

Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA).

We are uniquely qualified to represent military servicemembers in actions under the SCRA, which provides them with a variety of protections in civil actions, including interest rate reductions and protections from foreclosures. HMT represents servicemembers who are victims of businesses that do not follow the SCRA and can assist these military servicemembers to obtain significant financial compensation.

Defense Base Act.

Military contractors who are injured, whether on or off the job, may be eligible for special compensation under the Defense Base Act. We are experienced in bringing actions under these special procedures and have obtained significant compensation awards for our clients.

Medical Malpractice.

Health care professionals sometimes fail to deliver medical treatment according to the standard of care. Our attorneys will carefully review your case, consult with appropriate medical experts, and be prepared to aggressively litigate the case on your behalf.


Some of our results in civil cases:

  • Successfully sued the Islamic Republic of Iran on behalf of the families of the Marine Barracks bombing in Beirut, Lebanon.
  • Successfully represented multiple military servicemembers against mortgage lenders violating the SCRA.
  • Obtained half-million dollar settlement on behalf of military contractor under Defense Base Act for injuries suffered while deployed.
