Civil litigation is a legal process in which criminal charges and penalties are not at issue.
When individuals or businesses disagree on a matter, they may end up filing in Court. In civil litigation, two or more parties with a dispute over money, property, contracts, or performance seek to have the court rule on the matter.
The role and responsibilities of a civil litigation attorney can be challenging and diverse. Lawyers serve as their client’s advocate, and fight for them to achieve the best possible outcome.
