Civil law can involve very complex legal matters. That’s why it’s important to involve a civil litigation attorney, who can advise you through the entire process.
Civil law covers non-criminal disputes. Most civil cases involve a situation where one party believes they have had their rights violated by another party. Criminal laws cases are conducted through the criminal court system, while civil lawsuits are filed in civil courts.
A civil litigation attorney, who is also known as a trial lawyer or litigator, advises clients (defense or plaintiff) on a wide range of non-criminal litigation issues. The disputes typically involve one party seeking compensation for damages from another party.
The stages of civil litigation involve investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. A civil litigation attorney will help you navigate through all phases of the civil litigation process.
Civil litigation is a legal process in which civil matters are litigated in a civil court of law. A civil litigation case does not involve criminal charges or penalties. Types of civil litigation include breach of contract, defamation of character and property disputes, among others.
