Litigation is the fundamental building block of our adversarial legal system. it is known as adversarial because sometimes the truth in a matter can best be determined by giving two sides equal chances to make their case before an impartial judge or jury. Litigation refers to the process of putting a case before a trial court. It includes the pretrial procedures leading up to that point and the appeals that may occur after the trial. The plaintiff is the party who brings the lawsuit (in a civil matter) while the defendant is the party sued in a civil proceeding or accused in a criminal proceeding. The legal system, with its complex procedures and technical language can be confusing and frightening to most people. Because federal laws and procedures differ from those in states, it is important to have a good trial attorney to advise and represent you in court.
