General Civil Litigation
The majority of the practice at Kurtz Law falls under the umbrella of general civil litigation. Civil litigation is generally defined as a legal dispute between two or more parties seeking money damages or specific performance. Civil attorneys don’t seek criminal penalties and are “litigators” or “trial lawyers.”
The representation of clients for civil litigation matters also includes activities that arise pre-litigation. Actions such as drafting and reviewing contracts, producing standard forms, consulting with respect to business practices, negotiations, mediations and settlement conferences are all valuable practices for which to consult with an attorney.
Civil litigation takes place in the small claims, District and Superior Courts of North Carolina. Litigation also takes place within the confines of the bankruptcy court and follows many of the same principles. The term litigation generally refers to those matters that take place within the lawsuit: drafting lawsuits, conducting depositions, preparing for trial and trying cases.
