CIVIL LITIGATION

Generally, civil litigation commences when either an individual or a business is entangled in a legal dispute which either involve money damages or specific performance between two or more parties. Sometimes these types of disputes can only be fully resolved in a courtroom for either a judge or jury to settle the dispute. On other occasions an experienced litigator or trial lawyer can effectively settle your dispute either through mediation, arbitration or another method of alternative dispute resolution which can save the litigants substantial time and expense of having to go all the way through a trial.

The goal for plaintiffs who are involved in a civil litigation dispute may include; having an agreement or contract honored as originally intended by the parties, receive compensation for either personal or business loses as a result of the dispute or to attain compensation due to an injury. Alternatively, the primary objective for the defendants involved in a civil litigation dispute is to have their rights protected aggressively and competently against the plaintiff’s suit.

So, whether you are plaintiff or the defendant in the lawsuit, the most important variable in attaining a favorable outcome in your case is by having a qualified and experienced civil litigation attorney represent you.
