Civil Litigation

A typical civil case is a legal dispute between two or more parties. The party who is harmed files a complaint, explaining how the other party caused the harm. The complaint spells out the damages and asks the court for relief, either as a sum of money or an order to stop the harmful conduct, or both.

If you are involved in a civil case, it can be resolved by mediation, negotiation, or at trial. You may be able to negotiate an agreement with the opposing party on your own, and avoid any involvement with the legal system. If that doesn’t happen, though, and one party starts the legal process by filing a complaint, then you need to decide…

Do I need an Arkansas civil litigation attorney?

Honestly, maybe not.

If your civil matter involves a dispute under $5,000, it is just not worth the cost of hiring a lawyer to help you.   

If your matter is roughly between $5,000 and $10,000 in damages, that’s probably not worth hiring a lawyer either. 

If your matter is more than $10,000, it is most often worth it to hire a Lion Lawyer to represent you in your civil dispute. The benefits and results justify the cost.   

A civil case can be resolved by mediation, negotiation, or by going to trial and asking a judge or jury to decide. The cost can be kept modest if mediation or negotiation works, but will increase the closer the case gets to trial.

When you are involved in a civil legal dispute, you need a lawyer who understands the costs and benefits of all of the available ways to resolve the case, from your perspective. You also need a lawyer who knows how to clearly communicate throughout the legal process, so you will know your options, and be able to make informed decisions about how to proceed.
