Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation Lawyer Services

Civil litigation can be divided into several stages, including investigation, pleadings, discovery, pretrial proceedings, potential settlement or trial, and even appeal. Discovery is typically the longest and most labor-intensive stage of a case. Unlike the way they’re often portrayed on television, civil attorneys spend comparatively little time in trial. Much of their time is devoted to the discovery stage — the exchange of information pertinent to the case through depositions, interrogatories, and subpoenas.

The latter are demands for information or documents from third parties. Depositions and interrogatories involve questions posed under penalty of perjury to the parties in a lawsuit. Deposition questions are posed orally under oath. Interrogatories are written questions.

Not every lawsuit passes through each stage — in fact, most don’t. The majority of lawsuits are settled by agreement of the parties and never reach the courtroom. Parties can settle during trial, even after a jury has begun deliberating or has delivered a verdict. They can settle or “stipulate” to some aspects of the lawsuit, leaving others in the hands of the judge or jury.

When a case does go all the way to trial, the entire process, from filing documents with the court to initiate the case through resolution, can take anywhere from a few months to several years.

What Our Client Says

David

Prior Client

Now let me tell you about Bozzie Boggs. I felt good when I left each stage of my case. He was very straight-forward, but not brash. He helped me understand things in layman's terms. I was made aware of every option there was for me along the way. But the most impressive (and appreciated) part of the whole process was the way Bozzie handled himself in the courtroom. Basically - he was himself ... no surprises! No nervousness, very confident, respectful where and when necessary yet exhibited a personality that any judge / jury would respect in turn.

He really fought for my best situation in a commanding manner in that courtroom - NOT just in his office. I feel like I won twice - my case as well as the comforting knowledge that my potential future needs for legal assistance will be readily handled without hesitation or anxiety by Bozzie Boggs. Don't be unpleasantly surprised by half the job you expect from your attorney - trust Bozzie with your needs, you won't be disappointed.
