When and Why Do You Need a Civil Litigation Lawyer?

Filing a civil lawsuit can be a complex, tedious and confusing process, which is why you should turn to a civil litigation lawyer for help. Whether the case involves personal issues, debt settlement or injuries, you will have a much better chance at winning a settlement if you are represented by an attorney who has years of experience at handling your type of case.

Civil Litigation Lawyer

Consulting a Civil Litigation Lawyer

Your first step in moving forward with your case is to meet with a civil litigation lawyer that offers free consultations. The lawyer can then assess your case and let you know what your chances are of winning the suit. A law firm that has been in business for several decades has plenty of cases to draw from to inform you about likely scenarios. In some cases, a lawyer may direct you toward the option of alternative dispute resolution.

Attorney Fees

Many attorneys charge by the hour, but some offer a contingency, which means they will waive upfront fees and only charge a percentage if you win the case. If you lose, then you will not have to pay anything. When any law firm offers this type of arrangement, it indicates it’s only worth their time to take on cases in which they have a high expectation of success. Since every firm is different, make sure you find out about all fees during the consultation.

How the Process Works

A civil litigation lawyer handles each step of the lawsuit process. There are various outcomes that may occur, based on the evidence, including a private settlement. One of the reasons it’s best to rely on the expertise of civil attorneys is they understand the filing procedures of their local jurisdiction.

Follow the guidance of a civil litigation lawyer to achieve the fastest way to resolving and winning your case.
