What is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation is a strategic process in which civil matters are resolved in a court of law. Civil matters can be described as situations dealing with relationships between people and businesses, such as a contract dispute. Civil litigation provides opponents and opportunity to adjudicate their grievances in a court of law.
Common Types of Litigation
- Personal Injury Tort Claims
- Business Torts
- Contract Disputes
- Equitable Claims
- Class Action Suits
- Divorce and Family Law Disputes
- Property Disputes
- Professional Malpractice
- Civil Rights
- Civil Procedure
- Product Liability
By focusing on legal proceedings, civil litigation attorneys work toward resolution through the legal adversarial process using investigation, discovery, deposition, trial, and/or settlement strategies as warranted.
How much does a civil lawsuit cost?
The cost of litigation depends on numerous factors. These include, but are not limited to:
- How aggressively the other side litigates
- The length of time the case is litigated
- The extent and complexity of discovery
- The number of experts needed in the trial
- The number of mediation sessions
- Whether or not the case proceeds to trial
- Attorney fees and related litigation fees
Civil lawsuits can be very costly and time consuming – If litigation can be avoided, it should be!
The cost of litigating a case may yield diminishing returns for a client. It may be far more cost effective to settle a civil case early rather than spend tens of thousands of dollars. We counsel our clients to avoid civil lawsuits unless it is deemed necessary.
How long does a civil lawsuit take to get to trial?
The length of time largely depends on what county in which you live and litigate. In San Diego County, the litigation process may take a year or more before the matter goes to trial.
