General Civil Litigation

It’s well-known that having an attorney on your side is a must when criminal charges are involved. Criminal law is complex and the stakes can be high, including the possibility of time behind bars and hefty fines.

But not everyone knows that the same principles of having an attorney represent you also apply if you’re involved in civil litigation as well. Whether someone is accusing you of a non-criminal matter or you’re trying to resolve a dispute you’re involved in, proper legal representation can make sure you understand the situation and your rights are protected.

An attorney with experience and training in civil litigation will work with you to defend you against a civil lawsuit you may be a part of. They can also file a civil claim on your behalf if you feel you’ve been wronged but not in a criminal sense.

Types of civil litigation can include everything from someone disputing the price and condition of a property you sold to them to making sure you get what you’ve been promised in inheritance matters. In estate matters, if you and your siblings bring your own attorneys, it doesn’t automatically mean that things are adversarial; it means that everyone wants a fair proceeding where everyone is properly represented.

Civil litigation doesn’t always go all the way to a trial either: opposing attorneys often are asked to find ways to negotiate a settlement that’s satisfactory to every involved party. This outcome can keep everyone’s costs down and keep legal matters from dragging on for months or years.
