Civil litigation involved disputes dealing with the private relationships between individuals in society. This is an area of law that transcends various branches of law, however, litigation requires that the Parties engage in the Court’s process to settle and/or resolve the dispute.
Matters can be resolved through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms before the Court is engaged or matters can be settled without a hearing upon agreement by the Parties. If engaged, we will also provide you with all the information for you to determine the best avenue going forward.
