Civil Litigation: Understanding the Basics
Civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties in which financial compensation or specific performance is being sought, instead of any criminal penalties. In practice, civil litigation covers a wide array of different types of legal matters — from business and property disputes to regulatory matters and family law issues.
Civil litigation, in general, has one of the two following goals: (a) Forcing someone to perform an act that they are required to perform, such as an obligation that is required under an agreement or by statute, and/or (b) Recovering monetary damages. A civil lawsuit requires knowledge of substantive and procedural North Carolina law, strong negotiation skills, and the ability to understand complex legal and factual materials. If you are considering filing a civil claim or if you are facing a civil claim from another party, it is essential that you seek representation from an experienced Monroe civil litigation attorney as soon as possible.
