Civil disputes are sometimes inescapable and oftentimes require professional intervention.

If these disputes make their way to court, the legal guidance and representation from a seasoned civil attorney is vital.

Texas is the second-largest state in the United States and currently boasts a population of more than 26 million people. With all these people comes a plethora of different ideals, morals, behaviors, viewpoints and methods of doing things. This being the case, disagreements and disputes among people in the population are inevitable. Whenever they cannot settle their conflicts and reach mutually agreeable solutions, people may opt to take their cases to civil court.

If you are considering taking a civil disagreement to court, you require counsel from an experienced civil lawyer to protect your rights and aggressively litigate on your behalf. At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, L.L.P., our civil attorneys have been providing sound legal guidance and representation for civil disputes since 1985.

About Civil Litigation

Like many other facets of law, civil litigation can be quite complex and difficult to navigate. Civil litigation encompasses a wide spectrum of law issues wherein individuals, businesses and other entities seek monetary damages or other restitution as opposed to criminal punishment when disputes go to trial. Therefore, issues pertaining to criminal defense law, like drug possession, domestic violence and DWI charges, are outside the jurisdiction of a civil court.

“Civil litigation encompasses a wide spectrum of law issues wherein individuals . . . and other entities seek monetary damages . . . as opposed to criminal punishment.”

Oftentimes, people can settle lawsuits out of court at any time during a civil litigation case. When out-of-court settlement just does not pan out, having a proficient civil attorney is an absolute must. If you are seeking guidance for a civil dispute between you and another party, trust our civil litigation attorneys to offer complete, sophisticated solutions for your legal issue.


A Look Inside the Civil Litigation Process

The civil litigation process involves multiple stages and can take quite some time to get from the preliminary proceedings to settlement. From a broad standpoint, civil litigation has seven stages:

  1. Investigation
  2. Pleadings
  3. Discovery
  4. Pre-trial
  5. Trial
  6. Settlement
  7. Appeal

The most lengthy and arduous portion of the civil litigation process is the discovery stage when the parties collect relevant information and carry out research to heighten their position in the case. The civil lawyers at our law firm are known among our individual and business clients as well as within our community for showing the utmost persistence and commitment to excellence when carrying out the civil litigation process.
