There are essentially two types of litigation. Civil and Criminal. Civil litigation is usually litigation to obtain money damages or to enforce an agreement to perform a service or to keep a party from engaging in behavior detrimental to our client.

Most importantly, you need to find a lawyer who has the courtroom experience to win your case and the reputation in the legal community to make the most of the threat of litigation a good bargaining tool.
How much does Civil Litigation cost? Lawyers take different approaches to how they bill and how much they charge. Litigation attorneys may charge by the hour or may charge a contingency.
