Civil litigation can be divided into seven stages: investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. Not every lawsuit passes through each stage of litigation; most lawsuits are settled prior to trial and many cases that reach a trial verdict are not appealed. The attorneys at Shadrix, Lane & Parmer, P.C. include trial attorneys with experience of trying numerous cases before juries and before judges with favorable results for their clients.
Several common types of civil litigation include:
- Probate Disputes
- Tax Disputes
- Landlord/Tenant Disputes
- Business Disputes
- Real Estate and Property Disputes
- Contract Disputes
General commercial litigation involves virtually every type of dispute that can arise in the business context, including breach of contract cases, partnership/joint venture disputes, class actions, business torts, civil RICO claims, breach of fiduciary duty allegations, and shareholder issues.
