It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. To resolve these disputes, the parties use courts or arbitrators for adjudication. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under the practice area known as civil litigation.
For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or to assert your rights or the rights of others in court. Defendants in a civil litigation matter will want to aggressively protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim
