Learn how experienced civil litigation attorneys guide you through these disputes.

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 handles civil litigation is known as a “litigator” or “trial lawyer.” These civil litigation lawyers represent parties in trials, hearings, arbitrations, and mediations before administrative agencies, foreign tribunals, and federal/state/local courts.

We have civil litigator attorneys in North Carolina and Virginia who can handle a broad range of disputes, including:

  • Product Liability Lawyers
  • Personal Injury Lawyers
  • Construction Site Accident Lawyers
  • Medical Malpractice Lawyers
  • Employment and Labor Dispute Lawyers

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 are settled prior to trial—while many cases that reach a trial verdict are never appealed.

The lifespan of a civil litigation lawsuit can range from months to years. 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, devoting the most time to the discovery stage.

The civil litigation attorneys at Daggett Shuler will fight to win you the maximum settlement due under the law.
