Gainesville Civil Litigation Attorneys
Serving North Central Florida
When two or more parties encounter a legal dispute involving money, property, or a specific action and cannot come to an agreement, they may utilize civil litigation to help resolve their dispute. In civil litigation, the parties can involve the court to have a judge or jury resolve the matter. Civil litigation is unique in that there are no criminal charges or penalties involved. Even so, each party in a civil dispute can still have legal representation from a civil litigator. Civil litigators are also known as trial attorneys.
Trial attorneys specialize in representing clients in a wide variety of court proceedings, such as mediation, arbitration, pretrial hearings, and depositions. Arbitration and mediation may be used to save money and time by resolving civil disputes outside of the courtroom. The exact type of court proceedings that are required for civil litigation depends on the individual circumstances of the case.

The Civil Litigation Life Cycle
There are several stages of the litigation process.
A case can involve:
- Pretrial proceedings
- Potential settlements or trial
- Potential appeal
The longest part of civil litigation is normally the discovery. Contrary to popular belief, less time is spent in trial compared to other stages of civil litigation.
Each civil lawsuit is different and not all lawsuits may pass through every stage of the process. In fact, many lawsuits are settled through a mutual agreement between the parties without ever reaching the courtroom. Since each civil claim is unique, it’s important to retain the counsel of an experienced trial attorney who is familiar with every stage of the litigation process.
