Washington Civil Litigation Attorneys assist clients who have been unable to settle a dispute with another party. In most cases the next course of action is to engage a Civil Litigation Attorney to file a civil lawsuit.
Personal Injury Attorneys
Personal Injury Attorneys deal with a specific type of Civil Litigation cases, namely those involving physical injury or emotional harm to the damaged party. Due to the large number of Personal Injury cases and the relatively large settlement amounts that are involved, many Personal Injury attorneys restrict their practice to this very specific field of Civil Litigation, while others may practice in related areas such as Employment Law.
Divorce and Family Attorneys
While some aspects of Divorce and Family Law do not involve Civil Litigation, Divorce itself is a specific form of Civil Litigation. Due to the large number of Divorce cases and the nuances involved, many Family and Divorce attorneys do not handle Civil Litigation cases that fall outside their realm of expertise, while others may practice in related areas such as Employment Law.
Employment Attorneys (Wrongful Dismissal Attorneys)
While some aspects of Employment Law do not involve Civil Litigation, Wrongful Dismissal itself is a specific form of Civil Litigation. Employment Attorneys may also practice in related areas of Civil Litigation such as Divorce and Family Law, or Personal Injury Law.
Wills & Estates Attorneys (Estate Litigation Attorneys)
It is not uncommon for disputes to arise among those with an interest in the Estate of a deceased person. In such cases there is overlap between our Wills & Estates Attorneys category and our Civil Litigation Attorneys category, and you may wish to contact lawyers in both categories to determine the best course of action depending on the nature of the dispute.
