Michigan Civil Litigation

Michigan Civil Litigation

Civil litigation refers to the resolution of non-criminal legal disputes via the court system. In civil litigation, one party is typically seeking money damages from another, or a court order requiring another party to fulfill a legal obligation. Michigan civil litigation encompasses many areas of law, from personal injury to employment to real estate, and much more.

Personal, business, and financial disputes that may end up in court should be analyzed by an experienced Michigan civil litigator who can assess the strengths and weaknesses of a potential lawsuit. While filing a lawsuit is the official beginning of the civil litigation process, most lawsuits do not end up in a trial. The majority of Michigan civil litigation cases are resolved by negotiated settlements. Even when a settlement is the expected result, however, a favorable outcome is much more likely when you are represented by an attorney who is prepared to aggressively advocate for you all the way through trial.
