Our litigation attorneys, also known as litigators or trial lawyers, represent defendants in civil lawsuits. Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. We manage all phases of the litigation from the investigation, pleadings, and discovery through the pre-trial, trial, settlement, and appeal processes.
