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.

Do I need an Arkansas Civil Litigation attorney?
Honestly, Maybe not.
If your civil matter involves a dispute under $5000 it is not worth hiring a lawyer to help you because the cost of hiring a lawyer is more than what your lawsuit is about.
If your matter is about between $5000 and $10,000 in damages, it’s probably not worth hiring a lawyer.

A civil case can be resolved by mediation, or negotiation, or by going to trial and asking a judge or jury to decide.
The cost can be kept modest if mediation or negotiations works, but will go up 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, from your perspective, for all of the available ways to resolve the case.
You also need a lawyer who knows how to clearly communicate with you, and stay in touch throughout the legal process, so you will know your options and be able to make informed decisions about how to proceed.
