Litigation / Court

WHAT IS LITIGATION / COURT?

There are two main types of litigation - civil and criminal.

Civil Litigation
is simply the process of two sides (also known as parties) coming together in a formal setting (typically, but not always, a courtroom) to resolve a dispute or disagreement that they were not able to work out themselves. It may be that they disagree on the law or how it applies to their situation. Or it could be that one side feels they have been hurt or treated wrongly by the other, so they sue the accused wrong-doer to recover for their loss. Litigation can even be over things like who gets to keep the dog in a divorce! Disagreements happen all the time and that is what civil lawsuits are for - to resolve those disagreements within the rules of the law. However, just because a suit is filed doesn't mean that you will be absolutely be going to court. In fact, a recent study shows that only three percent (3%) of all civil suits which are filed actually are resolved at trial. That means that most cases don't make it to trial. But if your case does go to trial, you want to have an attorney who is confident, comfortable, and skilled in the courtroom. That is why you want Richard D. Jackson, Attorney-At-Law, PLLC in your corner.

Criminal Litigation
is similar because there are two sides appearing before a Judge. The difference is that one party is accused of breaking a law and the other party works for the government authority (typically the State) as a representative of the people as a whole. This person is called the prosecutor and their job is to try and convict those of breaking the laws of the state. Criminal litigation can be for something minor like a speeding ticket that results in a fine, or can be as severe as a crime which could result in a long jail sentence or even worse! This setting isn't as much about a disagreement between two parties as it is to enforce the law against one who is accused of violating the law. Criminal litigation is a very serious matter and one we never take lightly at Richard D. Jackson, Attorney-At-Law, PLLC.
