What can I expect?

The litigation process involves resolving disputes or claims between individuals, corporations, and government entities through objective determination. Our litigation services include contract disputes, debt collection, labour disputes, construction disputes, personal injury claims, and criminal defense. Once a client engages us for litigation services, we gather all the necessary information and evidence related to the case. We then draft and file the appropriate legal documents with the relevant court, and serve these documents on the opposing party. The opposing party will have a certain amount of time to respond, after which we will engage in a process of discovery, which involves exchanging relevant information and evidence related to the case.

Throughout this process, we explore alternative dispute resolution options where appropriate, such as mediation or arbitration, to avoid the time and expense associated with a full trial. If a settlement cannot be reached, the case will proceed to trial, where we will present our arguments and evidence to a judge or jury. The court will then make a decision, which will be binding on both parties.

At each stage of the process, we provide regular updates to our clients and ensure that they are fully informed throughout. Our goal is to make the litigation process as stress-free as possible for our clients, while also achieving the best possible outcome for their case. Overall, the litigation process can be complex and time-consuming, but with our team of skilled and experienced lawyers on your side, it is possible to achieve a just and equitable outcome.
