What is Civil Litigation?

A civil litigation is any legal dispute that does not involve criminal charges. One of the parties, the plaintiff, will seek either financial damages or some specific performance from the other, the defendant.

Most people know about civil cases from television courtroom shows. However, most civil suits are handled out of court. Typically, when our civil law team presents their case in pre-trial hearings and depositions, the lawsuit will be settled out of court.
