Civil Litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties seeking money damages or specific performance, as opposed to criminal sanctions. An attorney who practices in the area of Civil Litigation is generally referred to as a “litigator” or “trial lawyer”. Civil Litigation encompasses a broad range of disputes, including:
General Civil Litigation
Breach of Contract
Business Contract Disputes
Homeowners Association (HOA)
For a better understanding of Civil Litigation, the practice may be divided into different stages, including Investigation, Pleadings, Discovery, Pretrial, Trial, Settlement and Appeal. However, not every case will pass through each of these stages. In fact, many lawsuits are settled prior to trial. In addition, many cases that receive a trial verdict are not appealed.
