What Is Civil Litigation?


Civil litigation is the process in which civil matters are resolved in a court of law. Civil matters can be described as situations dealing with relationships between people, such as a marriage, or a contract dispute between corporations. It does not involve criminal matters. However, I can handle a civil matter that is also outside of the court process, such as through arbitration or mediation.

Whether you are being sued as a Defendant or you need to sue someone, as a Plaintiff, please contact me today for assistance! I use the trial process as a way to assist your leverage in order to help you achieve a favorable settlement. Or, if the case cannot be resolved through settlement, then rest assured knowing that you have competent counsel to take your case to the finish line in front of a Judge or Jury.

Listed below in the outline are a broad spectrum of the civil case types that I can handle for you.
