Civil Litigation refers to the discipline in which differentiates attorney Court work in the civil vein of legal action. It encompasses representations made in Court, as well as being responsible for pre-trial procedures, interlocutory hearings, and also includes post-trial resolution of any costs and enforcement of any related judgments. It is an incredibly important aspect of what we do here at Smith Tortorich LLC, and is an important function of the entire legal process.
The responsibility our attorneys take on when resolving a Civil Litigation matter is challenging but rewarding. We know that civil litigation can be somewhat of an adversarial process, and our attorneys (and our staff) are prepared to assume an oppositional position and embrace the high intensity conflict in a professional but effective manner. Our Attorneys are also prepared to work longer hours, if necessary and especially during trial, and also possibly travel depending on your individual needs with your matter. We also work with our clients through every step of the litigation life cycle. The lawsuit life cycle can be a lengthy process even though, no all lawsuits reach each stage of litigation; often times you can see lawsuits settle prior to trial and in a lot of instances many lawsuits that reach a trial verdict are not later appealed (as you often . The lifespan of a lawsuit can take as long as several months to possibly several years. Some of the more complicated matters involving civil litigation often take years to pass from pre-suit investigation through the trial and settlement phase of the process.
Due to the process being so complex and important, you need an attorney that will have the proficiency and expertise to know the ins and outs of substantive and procedural law, who has excellent advocacy skills, has both analytical as well logical deduction capability, with a meticulous attentiveness to facts, and holds a diplomatic affinity for negotiation and communication. Smith Tortorich holds itself to a high standard of honesty and excellence in working our clients’ litigation cases.
