The Many Faces Of Civil Litigation

Civil litigation refers to the legal process in which two parties resolve a noncriminal dispute in Wisconsin civil court. It starts with a summons and complaint, an answer to it, and proceeds through discovery to trial.  Pretrial procedures may include hearings, motions, depositions and mediations. The appeals process may follow in some cases.

Importantly, civil litigation is not limited to only one area of the law. For instance, some common forms of civil litigation include:

  • Personal injury lawsuits, such as those related to car accidents and wrongful death claims
  • Business litigation and contract disputes
  • Trust and probate litigation
  • Real estate litigation
