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.

In accordance with Florida and Federal law, a person who has been a victim of unfair and objectionable business practices may be entitled to monetary compensation. Similar to individuals, business entities can be held legally responsible for damages that are a result of unscrupulous business practices, such as wrongful foreclosure, harassing debt collection practice, deceptive trade practices and many other common business disputes.

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.

When confronted with these circumstances, it is imperative that you are represented by an experienced lawyer who can effectively act on your behalf and advise you on the best strategies for your particular situation.
