Civil Litigation

Justice conceptOur Commitment to Provide Quality Representation
Rarely do businesses and individuals enter an agreement and expect it to escalate to a dispute; however, circumstances can change and conflict may arise. Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is known as a “litigator” or “trial lawyer.” Lawyers who practice civil litigation represent parties in trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations before administrative agencies, and federal, state and local courts.

Litigation Lifecycle
Civil litigation can be divided into seven stages: investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. Not every lawsuit passes through each stage of litigation; most lawsuits are settled prior to trial and many cases that reach a trial verdict are not appealed.

The lifespan of a lawsuit can range from several months to several years. Complex civil litigation often takes years to pass from pre-suit investigation through trial/settlement.

Discovery is the longest and most labor-intensive stage of civil litigation. Contrary to the image portrayed by television, civil litigators spend little time in trial; most time is devoted to the discovery stage of litigation.

South Carolina Law sets strict limits on the amount of time you have to settle your case or file a lawsuit. It is advisable that you consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
