Civil litigation is the handling of non-criminal legal proceedings from the filing of a lawsuit through its conclusion by dismissal, settlement, and trial, including any appeals and enforcement actions. Litigation is not for the meek. An effective lawsuit lawyer must not only know the area of the law and the facts of the case like the back of her hand – she must also be an exceptional writer and researcher to expertly prepare all the necessary pleadings, motions, and briefs. We have won many cases on the pleadings alone whether by demurrer, a motion for summary judgment, or a well-written settlement or trial brief. Not only do the papers have to be spot on – a skilled litigator must also be poised, strong and convincing in arguing before the court. Preparing for trial can be a monumental task and involves complex rules about pretrial procedures and deadlines as well as the presenting and admission of evidence and in taking and objecting to witness testimony. The best lawsuit litigators can win a case well before trial through well-drafted discovery and skilled and effective depositions.
If you are involved in a lawsuit, you need a strong and experienced lawsuit attorney in your corner like the Heieck Law Center. The vast majority of cases settle before trial so your attorney must not only be a skilled negotiator, she must also be prepared to call opposing counsel’s bluff and take the matter all the way to trial if the opposing party refuses to settle for reasonable terms. Your attorney needs to advise you on reasonable settlement ranges based on the law and your set of facts so you can make an informed settlement decision.
Civil litigation is extremely broad and includes matters ranging from negligence, fraud, breach of contract, premises liability, promissory estoppel, unjust enrichment, fraudulent transfer, nuisance, quiet title, trespass to land, specific performance, partition, unfair business practices (Business & Professions Code 17200), enforcement of debt, creditor’s rights, (FDCPA, Rosenthal Act), breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, breach of fiduciary duty, trademark infringement, cease and desist, injunctive relief, declaratory relief, unlawful detainer, torts, real property disputes, partition, boundary disputes, conversion, probate, conservatorship, guardianship, family law, wrongful foreclosure, and personal injury.
