Most West Virginia residents have probably never seen the inside of a courtroom. Yes, there are some who will experience divorce cases or maybe even personal injury lawsuits, for example, but there are probably more people who have not experienced these legal matters than those who have. However, there are many different types of issues that can lead to litigation. If you find yourself facing litigation or the need to pursue another party via legal means, navigating the process of civil litigation in West Virginia doesn’t need to seem too daunting to handle.
Civil litigation and you
Perhaps you and a neighbor have a dispute over property, for example. Or, maybe you find yourself in the middle of a contract dispute. The issues that can lead to civil litigation may seem endless. However, it is important to remember that even if a lawsuit is filed, getting into an actual courtroom – especially in front of a jury – may be a long way down the line in the process of the case.
The reality is that many civil cases are settled or in some other way dismissed well before they ever get to the point of a jury trial. These days, civil law courts are eager to push parties in litigation to use mediation or other alternative means of getting the legal issues resolved, even encouraging direct negotiations between the parties. However, there certainly are some cases that do end up in front of a jury. If that happens to be your case, you’ll probably want a forceful and persuasive advocate on your side.
