Civil litigation makes it possible for a private individual or company to use the court system to protect their interests. Many different types of cases fall under the category of civil litigation including breach of contract claims, personal injury cases, molestation and sexual abuse, employment and labor disputes, construction and real estate disputes, business disputes, trade secret and unfair competition, and shareholder derivative actions.
Individuals and organizations may become involved in civil litigation if they are served with a summons indicating someone has taken legal action against them. People and companies can also initiate civil litigation and use the court system to right a wrong or protect an interest. Whether as a plaintiff or as a defendant, it is essential you understand how the civil court system works and that you navigate the rules of civil procedure effectively.

A Trial Specialist Can Represent You in Civil Litigation
The majority of cases are settled outside of court through negotiations, so many attorneys do not have practical trial experience. To get the very best in legal representation, you need to be represented by a lawyer with a history of successes in the courtroom. Presenting evidence to a jury, understanding court rules and making a compelling case are specialized skills and the outcome of your case can depend in part upon whether your lawyer is an effective advocate.
At Brown & Charbonneau, LLP, you will be represented by a Board Certified Trial Specialist. This means that your lawyer has demonstrated the necessary written and oral advocacy skills, knowledge of courtroom procedure, ethics, and legal acumen to be a successful litigator. Your case is too important to put in the hands of someone who does not have proven trial experience.
The role of your attorney is to help ensure evidence is presented to a jury in the most compelling way possible. Today, technology plays a vital role in presenting a civil case. Our Irvine civil litigation lawyers routinely employ state-of-the-art technology in court. This may include taped depositions; computer-generated animations, and sophisticated technological presentations.
The strategic use of visually-persuasive media makes it possible to connect with jury members on a human level so the jury can better understand your point of view. The mastery of courtroom technology is so important that other law firms routinely request that Brown & Charbonneau, LLP handle their trial work so their clients can benefit from our specialized skills.
