What does civil litigation mean?


Civil litigation simply means that there is a legal dispute between two or more individuals seeking money for damages and not criminal sanctions.
Attorneys who practice civil litigation law are known as litigators or trial lawyers. At Fox and Lutz we represent our clients in trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations. Our attorneys appear before local, state and federal courts.
Civil litigation is often divided into seven stages: investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. Many lawsuits are settled out of court, prior to trial.
At Fox & Lutz we handle various types of complex civil litigation cases. Our legal team has advanced knowledge of substantive and procedural law. This law firm also boasts the most high tech legal research techniques and software along with ironclad negation skills.
