New York Civil Litigation

A New York Civil Litigation Lawyer can tell you that a Civil Litigation matter can take countless forms. Generally, it is the process of resolving a dispute between two or more parties where at least one party has suffered harm. The party bringing the action is called the Plaintiff, and the party accused of causing the harm is called the Defendant. Breach of contract, personal injury claims, real estate litigation, and even legal malpractice cases are all examples of civil litigation. The offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC represent businesses, individuals and organizations in all types of personal injury, business, construction, real estate and other civil litigation matters.

When a legal matter is first started, the litigation process begins with discovery, and the filing of pleadings. In discovery, the parties exchange documents, conduct depositions and hire professionals to learn more about the circumstances of the case. At this stage of the process however, because it is in an adversarial setting, parties may withhold key information so that the opponent will not gain an advantage. A skilled New York Civil Litigation Lawyer however, is trained to successfully navigate through this problem. During the trial, both sides get to present their evidence, and the judge rules on issues of law based on the facts provided. If a party loses their case, the have generally have the right to appeal to another court.
