Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Civil litigation refers to the legal process of resolving disputes between individuals or organizations through the court system. It typically involves seeking monetary compensation or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions.

The process of civil litigation generally involves several stages, including investigation and pleadings, discovery, pre-trial proceedings, trial, and potentially an appeal. Each stage has specific procedures and timelines that must be followed to ensure a fair and just resolution.

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, such as mediation and arbitration, offer alternatives to traditional litigation. These processes can be less time-consuming and costly, providing parties with more control over the outcome of their disputes.

The possible outcomes of a civil litigation case include a judgment in favor of the plaintiff or defendant, a settlement agreement, or a dismissal of the case. The specific outcome depends on the evidence presented, the applicable law, and the decision of the judge or jury.

Civil litigation encompasses a broad range of cases, including personal injury claims, contract disputes, property disputes, employment disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, and commercial litigation, among others.

The duration of a civil litigation case can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the case, the court’s schedule, and the willingness of the parties to reach a settlement. Some cases may be resolved in a matter of months, while others may take several years to reach a final resolution.

Legal fees and costs in civil litigation are typically based on an agreement between the client and the attorney, which may involve hourly rates, contingency fees, or flat fees. It is essential for clients to understand the fee structure and potential costs associated with their case before proceeding with litigation.

The statute of limitations establishes the time limit within which a lawsuit must be filed. The specific time frame varies depending on the type of case and the jurisdiction, and failure to file within the designated period may result in the case being dismissed.
