When pursuing a litigation attorney you would be wise to hire a litigator who has the experience and knowledge of the law in order to win your case. You will need a litigator or trial attorney with a law degree in the state in which you are filing your case and one that knows how to investigate your case, proceed with pleadings and discovery to the pre-trial, complete the trial, obtain a great settlement and also appeal if necessary. Many lawsuits filed in the civil courts never make it to trial. They are settled prior to their trial dates through the attorney’s and the judge.
The responsibilities of your litigation lawyer will depend on whether you are the defendant or the plaintiff. Your attorney will locate witnesses and take their statements on what went on for your case. Documents will be gathered, clients will be interview and an investigation of all the facts will be put together for your case. Attorneys for both sides will sit down and discuss a pre-litigation settlement in order to resolve the case before the filing of a lawsuit.
