A litigation lawyer is someone who will represent and protect your interests when there is a brawl below is an overview of the diverse tasks litigation lawyers undertake during the course of litigation. These tasks vary based on the nature of the dispute, the experience level of the attorney and whether the litigation attorney is representing the plaintiff or defendant.
Initial Case Investigation/ Appraisal -
Petition - Litigation attorneys/lawyers draft a variety of petition and motions on behalf of the defendant. Defending lawyers will draft a notice and complaint to commence the lawsuit. Defense lawyers cooperate with the client to investigate the accusations of the lawsuit and formulate responses.
Finding - The Finding process involves the exchange of relevant information between the parties. Litigation attorneys employ a variety of finding devices to gain information relevant to the lawsuit. These devices include disquisition, depositions, requests for production and requests for admission.
Pre-Trial - In the weeks before trial, litigation lawyers wrap up finding and prepare for trial. In the pre-trial stage, litigators consult with and advise clients; retain expert witnesses; attend pretrial conferences and develop a trial strategy based on the facts and evidence.
Trial - At trial, litigation attorneys conduct advise dire, select a tribunal and present their case in court. Litigation attorneys present opening and closing statements, examine and cross-examine witnesses and craft a persuasive story for the fact-finder (judge or tribunal) through testimony and evidence. Litigation attorneys also prepare tribunal instructions and conduct post-trial interviews of the tribunal.
Settlement - Most cases never reach trial but instead are settled in order to eliminate the risk and expense of a trial. Litigation lawyers may settle a case at any time during the life cycle of the litigation.
Appeal - Finally, after what can amount to years in the pretrial stages of litigation, the merits of the case will be heard by the judge or a jury. Witnesses will be called to testify, evidentiary exhibits will be submitted, and the attorneys for both sides will present an argument as to why their clients deserve to win. A jury trial can potentially stretch on for weeks, and when it is over, the losing party will still have the right to appeal, which is almost certain to happen if a large money judgment is awarded to the winner.
