A civil litigation attorney represents clients in law practice areas that involve disputes other than criminal law. Some civil litigation areas are commonly known, such as disputes over contracts, business disagreements, accidents and personal injury claims, problems with insurance companies and real estate questions. However, often a legal problem or dispute overlaps several areas of law or cannot easily be categorized. We have broad experience representing clients in those cases and the skills needed for a successful outcome.

Why Do I Need a Civil Litigation Attorney?
Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, it is important to have the right person protecting your rights in any civil litigation. Many law suits require not only skill in trial and trial preparation but also a strong background in the underlying subjects of the litigation. For example, in real estate litigation, an understanding of real estate transactions, titles and practices is important in knowing what evidence is most persuasive, what issues must be addressed and how to explain your case to the judge and jury. A civil litigation attorney has experience in many of the underlying issues that led to litigation and knows how to try cases in those areas of law. Just a few of areas where a civil litigation attorney might be needed are:
- Accidents and personal injury
