Navigating Civil Law

Civil litigation are cases that are non-criminal in nature.  Civil litigation attorneys can handle anything from filing a lawsuit, defending a lawsuit, or even post-trial and pre-trial hearings.  Civil litigation attorneys can even help at administrative hearings.  A civil litigation lawyer will be knowledgeable in the rules of civil procedure, the rules of evidence, and all applicable laws.  Some examples of civil litigation cases include personal injury, defamation, torts (negligence), contract disputes, fraud, insurance bad faith, landlord/tenant disputes and many others.

Another aspect of civil litigation is alternative dispute resolution. These processes such as mediation; negotiation; and arbitration, help curb the need for formal litigation and keep attorney fees to a minimum. It is imperative that a civil litigation lawyer is experienced with these processes and can advocate on your behalf outside of the courtroom successfully.
