The cornerstone of America’s legal system is the right to be heard and resolve disputes in a court of law. Yet with that freedom comes the reality that anyone, at any time, could find themselves either dragged into court or forced to file a lawsuit to assert their rights.
In either instance, the result is often the same: Someone loses—which usually means they suffer a financial loss—and even the prevailing party can end up emotionally and financially battered by the experience. It is not uncommon for cases to go on for years until a judgment is reached—and by then both sides may have spent more in loss time and legal fees than the original basis of the dispute.
There is no need to go it alone when it comes to defending or asserting your rights: With an experienced Litigation Attorney from Jurado & Associates, P.A., you can rest assured that your interests will be passionately defended to the fullest extent of the law.
Helping You Navigate the Complexities of Civil Litigation
In its simplest terms, litigation is the process of taking legal action in court. There are countless reasons or “causes of action” for going to court, ranging from injuries suffered by the negligence of another, to disagreements over the terms of a contract. The broad scope of Civil Litigation means it can happen to anyone, from business owners to parties in a real estate transaction, to neighbors fighting about whether one property ends and the other begins.
One common thread running through all litigation cases is that they must comply with statutory and judicial procedures that govern everything from where you can file, to how long you have to respond to a complaint. The amount of money you are claiming determines whether you file in county court, circuit court, or even federal court, each with their own rules and procedures. Factors such as where an accident occurred, or where a disputed property is located, can influence which courthouse you must go to.
These are just some of the crucial details to consider well before either side even shows up to court. There are many more rules that apply throughout the process, from the number of depositions you are allowed to take, to when you can raise certain legal defenses or arguments. Failing to meet these requirements or deadlines could delay your case or even lead to its dismissal.
There are literal volumes of texts regarding the rules and procedures of Civil Litigation. Fortunately, it will not be your job to figure out these critical details: A Litigation Attorney from Jurado & Associates, P.A. has knowledge and experience to help steer your course through the nuances and complexities of litigation.
