Attorneys that specialize in civil litigation are also called Litigators or Trial Attorneys. Civil litigation attorneys represent individuals, businesses, or government entities in non-criminal areas of legal dispute. Lawyers specializing in civil litigation provide legal strategies and advise on your case.
Civil litigation attorneys often represent their clients across a variety of proceedings. These may include trial hearings, depositions, settlement conferences, mediation, and arbitration. The mediation and arbitration processes are alternative dispute resolution mechanisms which are geared toward aiding the two parties in reaching a settlement rather than investing the additional time and expense of going to court. There are some matters and courts which require this type of process, in an attempt to free up the court system and have parties resolve their disputes before spending additional resources.
Litigation attorneys are responsible for handling all the phases of a litigation. Some of these responsibilities include investigating details relating to the case, gathering of evidence, researching appropriate laws, conducting depositions, drafting up legal documentation, negotiating settlements, and the appeal process.
There are many types of civil lawsuits that litigation attorneys can handle. Some of these include:
- Family Law
- Personal Injury
- Real Estate
- Business Law
- Landlord/Tenant Disputes
- Contract Disputes
Hiring a civil litigation attorney has many benefits, including giving you peace of mind, helping you save costs, minimizing your risk, avoiding incriminating yourself, navigating the court process easily, and overall better handling of the case. Whether you want to file a lawsuit or have someone filing one against you, it’s important to seek out legal representation.
