When you are faced with an intractable legal battle, the Benjamin Law Firm is the experienced choice in civil litigation.
What is civil litigation?
The term civil litigation refers to a lawsuit involving two or more parties seeking monetary damages or “specific performance” instead of criminal charges. Specific performance is a court order requiring a party to a lawsuit to take a specific action — such as an action under a contract.
The litigation process generally involves a sequence of steps:
- Pretrial negotiation
- Pretrial proceedings
- Potential settlement
Although our experience with negotiating enables us to resolve many cases before going to trial, we know our way around the courtroom, having tried both jury and non-jury trials. We are highly adept at all aspects of litigation, and focus our efforts during discovery to identify weaknesses in the opposition’s case. Keenly aware that disputes rise and fall on ediscovery — the discovery (or recovery) of electronic communications such as emails, text messages, website content, social media posts, and the like — we routinely collaborate with independent investigators, forensic specialists and financial professionals to collect and analyze digital evidence.
We are also highly adept at drafting the necessary motions and other court papers as part of our intensive preparation. At trial, we leverage our legal knowledge and courtroom presentation skills to fight for our clients’ interests. In the event of an adverse outcome at trial, we will consider whether an appeal is worth pursuing.
