Unlike criminal prosecution, civil action involves a lawsuit brought to court in order to receive damages or to recover a right. Civil litigation usually involves disputes of private law issues between individuals, businesses or non-profit organizations. At the same time, civil litigations can include public law issues.
A civil litigation lawsuit is started as soon as the plaintiff files a written complaint. The defendant will then respond and deliver a written “answer” to the complaint in order to make any kind of plea.
After the answer is filed, the parties engage in the “discovery” process. At this point, the parties will learn about all the facts involved in the case in order to prepare the trial. The discovery process includes witness questioning and answering and the exchange of documents, as well as written questions, known as interrogations.
Horwood Law Group has deep experience in many diverse aspects of litigation. We bring a strategic approach to litigation, and part of that is an effective use of the mediation process. Some disputes should not be litigated; often, the length and cost (both personally and fiscally) of traditional litigation make it an undesirable process.
