Orange County Litigation Attorney Working for You!
What is a Litigation Attorney?
Generally speaking litigation is the process of bringing or contesting a lawsuit. The lawsuit could be in the civil courts, criminal proceedings, or even in family law courts. Litigation is the process where a case or controversy, is decided through an adversarial court process. Our Orange County litigator litigates in the areas of civil litigation and criminal litigation. Generally speaking in a litigation the participants to the litigation want to enforce or defend a legal right or claim in the judicial proceeding.
The parties to the litigation are called litigants and are usually refered to as Plaintiff or Defendant and/or Petitioner or Respondent. In the litigation one party usually has the burden of proof to prove their case by a standard of proof determined by the nature of the judicial proceeding. For example in a civil proceeding, a plaintiff may want to enforce a civil liability on the defendant to pay for damages that he may have sustained from a torious act, or a contractual obligation, or property claim. The standard of prove in these types of civil litgation generally speaking would be by a perponderance of the evidence. Contrast this with a criminal law litigation wherein the state would be required to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. Although the standards of proof are different in these examples, they are are all litgations in that they seek to assert a right or claim through the courts in a case or controversy. The litigants if unable to resolve their differences among themselves then may seek a litigation attorney to bring their case to court in order to assert or defend their legal rights or claims.
