Therefore, we understand it is essential to conduct early litigation evaluation to design a litigation plan to achieve the client’s needs in the most efficient and cost-conscience manner possible.
Civil litigation involves matters of dispute between two or more people or groups looking for monetary compensation or deliverance of services. Attorneys who specialize in civil litigation are commonly known as litigators. They represent people for mediation, hearings, arbitration, court trials, tribunals and administrative agencies.
The process of civil litigation involves seven steps. The first is investigation, followed by pleadings and discovery. The longest phase is usually the discovery process. Pre-trial is next, but there are also settlement and appeal steps. The settlement is reached when the case is decided, and appeals may be filed if one party is unhappy with the outcome. The majority of civil litigation lawsuits are settled prior to reaching the trial stage.
