Civil Litigation

Civil litigation involves a plaintiff bringing a civil action against a defendant or defendants, usually for a financial award. Civil cases may or may not involve an associated criminal issue. People sue other people for all kinds of reasons. Whether the case is well founded or spurious, both parties require legal representation to settle the matter in court.

There are many issues to consider in either bringing a civil action or defending against them in court. When people have a disagreement, often any potential financial compensation is eclipsed by legal costs. Both parties must decide whether the case is worth bringing or defending. In some instances, the losing party must cover the legal fees of both plaintiff and defendant.

Some examples of civil litigation include:

  • Representation in the General District Courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia
