Civil Litigation

Fairfax County Civil Litigation Attorneys

It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under what is known as civil litigation.

For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or to obtain compensation for an injury. On the other hand, defendants in a civil litigation matter want to aggressively protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim.
