Civil litigation includes a broad range of disputes. Common types of civil litigation include real estate, intellectual property, products liability, medical malpractice, environmental law and employment and labor. The process includes stages: investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. Not all lawsuits incur every stage as some are settled prior to trial. The lifespan of these types of lawsuits can range from a few months to several years. Discovery is the longest stage of civil litigation and the most labor intensive. During the discovery sate, we gather relevant information from all parties, including third parties. We review documents, attain interrogatories, take depositions and more. Thorough case preparation is needed for any successful litigation case, and we do not leave any stone unturned.
It takes specific legal skills and legal knowledge for civil litigation practice.
