Do I need a Civil Litigation Lawyer in DuPage County?

Pratice Area

Most civil disputes settle out of court. That’s because civil cases are costly to pursue. They can involve numerous motions, long periods of evidentiary discovery and numerous attempts to settle. Reaching a courtroom can take years. But that doesn’t make the guidance a civil suit lawyer offers any less valuable. 

The Chicagoland Law Firm can advise you on the most efficient way to resolve your civil dispute based on the facts of your case and past rulings and settlements. Our experience in alternative dispute resolution means that we can help you find ways of resolving the matter without your case ever going to court. In some cases, a lawsuit doesn’t need to be filed.

Retaining an experienced civil litigation attorney spares more than money. We understand that filing a lawsuit and being served one are two of life’s most daunting experiences. Emotions can cloud judgement and strain relations, putting greater stress on already stressful situations. A seasoned litigator provides a buffer that enables you to see more clearly the avenues open to you and their likelihood of achieving a satisfactory resolution.

If settling your case early on will achieve the best result, we will explain why we believe it is better to settle than pursue litigation. When finding an amicable resolution is not possible, we have the skill and in-depth legal knowledge to represent you with confidence and conviction in court.
