Civil litigation is different from criminal prosecution because civil action is brought to court with the goal of obtaining damages or to recover a right. Disputes of private law issues tend to be involved in civil litigation and occur most frequently between individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations. While civil litigation involves mostly private issues, civil litigation can also entail public law issues as well.

Civil Litigation Process
As soon as the plaintiff files a written complaint, the civil litigation lawsuit begins. The defendant responds by delivering a written “answer” to the complaint in order to make some kind of plea on their own behalf.
Once the answer has been filed, the parties engage in the “discovery” process. During this process, both parties will learn about all the facts involved in the case so that they can prepare for the trial. Witness questioning, document exchange, and written questions also known as interrogations, are common activities that occur during this process.
Regardless of whether you are entering a civil litigation lawsuit as the defendant or the plaintiff, it is of utmost importance for you to have a qualified lawyer by your side. Steburg Law Firm, P.C. is experienced in civil litigation matters can make all the difference in the success of your case.
