Civil litigation is one of the most common types of lawsuit filed in the United States. A civil litigation suit is a legal dispute between two parties in which financial compensation, not incarceration, is the end goal. The lawyers who handle these cases are often known as ‘litigators’ or ‘trial lawyers’. There are many types of civil litigation suits, including education, landlord/tenant, and medical malpractice. These types of trials are broken down into seven major stages, the most important of which include pleadings, discovery, trial and appeal. Not every trial goes through seven phases, and most of the time spent on a litigation trial is devoted to the discovery phase, in which the parties involved exchange documents and information, in order to discover facts about the case.
