According to Karl Heideck, Litigation attorneys advocate for criminal clients, however when parties facing civil matters they may also opt for litigation attorneys. Civil cases rarely proceed to trial and are mostly resolved outside the courtroom this is because trials are both hectic and costly. Large entities are capable of employing their litigators who work under their departments. These litigators have senior lawyers who oversee their work when working on cases.
Civil litigator conducts various roles in resolving a civil case including the investigative role of doing extensive research on information related to the case. They follow up on statements made by witnesses and medical records related to the case. They also reach out to the opposition party lawyer to discuss the settlement. The trial in civil matters rarely occur, but when parties fail to agree on the settlement, the civil litigator files a lawsuit, drafts motions, and pleas regarding the case debatable in court. The civil litigator also presents summons to the defendants’ lawyer and awaits a mandatory response. The parties may choose to settle in this stage however if not the trial, pretrial and deposition process sets in motion. Civil litigators then prepare a strong defense team for their client they further indulge professionals in various fields in building and analyzing the case.
