What Is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation is the process through which legal disputes involving individuals and/or entities (businesses, corporations, government agencies, etc.) are resolved. Unlike criminal cases, civil law matters are typically resolved through one side compensating the other monetarily rather than someone ending up in jail.
A skilled and experienced Fairfax civil litigation lawyer can help clients leverage their negotiation position to more effectively reach the settlement that best works for them. A negotiated settlement is often the quickest and most cost-effective way to resolve civil disputes; however, in the event a civil dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation, we are prepared to go to court on your behalf. Our civil litigation attorney will consult with expert witnesses such as investigators, accountants, and other professionals in order to build you a strong case in order to achieve a successful outcome.
