In its simplest form, litigation refers to the process of taking legal action against a perceivable violation of the law. This involves the process of preparing a lawsuit and continuing with its proceedings inside and outside of court. For those who initiate litigation, the process spells out a daunting situation while also disrupting their important commitments in life. For those at the other end of the process, going through litigation becomes stressful and poses different risks for their present and future.

Pre-lawsuit processes – Our team analyzes the legal claim’s strength and considers the next possible steps for it. This is the foundational step for considering the fate of a potential lawsuit. Our attorneys handle this prospect with the utmost care to help you achieve your goals. Once the respective claim is filed with the court, we continue to represent your interests while the lawsuit proceeds to the discovery phase.
Discovery procedures – The discovery phase includes (but is not limited to) the collection of evidence and statements. Interviews or depositions are also a part of the process. This process helps either party prove the strength of the claim, with the settlement or trial proceedings following next. Our experts also remain there to support you with the process.
Settlement processes – Afterward, the process to propose and analyze settlement comes into the picture. To help you attain your goals, our team prepares and delivers formidable arguments to increase your chances of achieving your ideal settlement. If a settlement is not possible or if you wish to try the case in court, our attorneys focus on moving forward to the next phase.
Trial – The respective claims and sets of evidence are presented to the court, where a judge decides the claim’s fate. Since it is one of the most critical parts of litigation, our attorneys make it a point to offer strong legal representation and arguments.
