While the trial is the highlight of any litigation case, the vast majority of the work happens long before a witness is called. All kinds of cases fall under Civil Litigation, including contested divorces and debt settlements, but the definition of this type of law refers to any lawsuits that do not include criminal charges.

Phases of a Civil Litigation Lawsuit
While many civil lawsuits can be settled before even reaching a court room, in certain cases, things can become more complex and difficult.
Generally, a civil lawsuit will proceed as follows:
• Pre-Trial – including discovery of fact finding stage
• Trial and Judgement
Do I need a lawyer before a civil lawsuit goes to trial?
Despite most civil lawsuits not reaching a court room, it is important to have legal counsel with you in the pre-trial proceedings.

An attorney can also guide you towards not accepting a settlement in cases where you would be better served to go to court.
