Litigation – Trial & Judgement Enforcement
Although many legal disputes can be resolved without resorting to trial, it is not possible to satisfactorily address every issue through arbitration, mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods.
If you are dealing with a complex and intractable matter that demands immediate attention in Katy, Pearland, Missouri City or any other part of the greater Houston area, it may be necessary to contact an experienced Houston civil litigation attorney. The two principal attorneys at the Law Offices of Lambert & Jakob have more than four decades of combined experience in civil litigation, including such subsets as commercial litigation, consumer litigation and personal injury litigation.
Litigation in Houston, Galveston and Beyond
Litigation is the process of adjudicating a legal dispute in a court of law. It is a common means of addressing issues for which there is little hope of a negotiated settlement. Non-criminal litigation actions are popularly known as “lawsuits” and – if a negotiated settlement cannot be reached first – typically result in a civil trial.
During civil trial proceedings, the counterparties present their cases before a sitting judge or jury. While either side has a right to request that the case be heard by a jury, this right is often waived.
To support their arguments, they present evidence, call witnesses and make oral arguments. Once both sides have been given the opportunity to argue their side of the story, the judge weighs the facts as presented and issues a ruling. In actions involving a jury, the jury is responsible for deliberating on the facts and issuing a verdict under the supervision of a judge. While the outcome of a civil trial is binding and enforceable in court, it can be appealed to a higher court under certain circumstances.
