Civil Litigation Law
Civil Litigation Law involves a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or equitable remedies. The George Law Firm LLC - Maritime Law Group will represent you before administrative agencies - federal and state, trial courts - federal and state - to include pre-trial analysis, court filings, discovery, alternative dispute resolution, and if necessary trial.
A leading characteristic of the Anglo-American procedural system is its adversarial nature. In civil disputes it is usually up to the parties, not the court, to initiate and prosecute litigation, investigate the pertinent facts, and present proof and legal argument to the tribunal. The court’s function is generally limited to adjudicating the issues raised by the parties on the proof they have presented and applying appropriate procedural sanctions on motion of a party.
Because the acts of the parties make the adversary system run and because procedures are too complex for most parties to operate them, lawyers play a crucial role in civil proceedings.
