Limited Civil Litigation
Civil litigation describes a dispute between two parties that is not based on criminal penalties. Limited Civil Litigation means the amount in dispute is $25,000 or less. Normally, civil litigation cases have one party (the plaintiff) that is seeking money or some other kind of remedy (damages) from another party, whom we call the defendant. The nature of these cases is extremely broad and differs from client to client.

Do Civil Cases Always Go to Court?
Civil cases do not have to be resolved in court. They can be settled outside of court or handled by way of mediation or alternative dispute resolution (ADR). If the case goes to court, the issues will be decided by a judge, or a jury if you requested one. If the case is settled outside of court, both parties have slightly more control over how the issues are decided.
