Civil Litigation Attorneys Help You Settle Disputes In and Out of Court Rooms
There are many circumstances in which legal disputes require civil litigation. If there is a discrepancy between a landlord and a tenant, they might settle it in civil litigation. Neighbors who are fighting over a piece of property might hire civil litigation attorneys to help them settle the matter.
Civil litigation cases do not involve criminal charges, so there tends to be less drama. People usually dispute over money, property, or something similar and need a court’s ruling to put their dispute to rest.Contact Us for Help with Your Civil Suit

What is the Process of a Civil Law Case?
The process of civil litigation can be a long and grueling one. Having an attorney who is well versed in civil litigation will not only make the process go faster, but it will also be easier on you and your family.
First, someone who is wishing to pursue a civil law case against someone else or a corporation must bring it to the attention of a civil litigation attorney like us at Thompson and Thompson Law Firm. Our attorney will hear your case and decide whether it is worth pursuing. If it is, we will walk you through the next steps in civil litigation.
From there, we move into the investigation phase exercising and implementing all of our resources to build a solid defense in your favor including private investigators, reaching out to any established connections we have, and more. This is also when the other party is made aware of the civil case against them.
Then we move into pleadings where both parties will detail their sides of the story. After pleadings is the discovery process which involves extensive research into the case and any other case examples that will help our client win the civil suit.
The case then moves into pre-trial where both parties have an opportunity to negotiate and reach resolution. If resolution cannot be met in pre-trial, the case moves into trial before a judge and sometimes a jury. At this point, we will have a strong case established to get you the best possible outcome.Hire Our Civil Litigation Attorneys
