A civil litigation lawsuit benefits from experienced civil litigation lawyers
The MWAS Law Firm attorneys attempt to settle disputes at the earliest occasion where the client's goals can be achieved. The lawsuit process begins when your civil litigation lawyer files your complaint with the appropriate court and the party you file the claim against receives notification of the complaint. Your opposition has a specific period to answer.

Once filed, your civil litigation attorney begins the discovery process, the stage during which both parties have the opportunity to gather and assess evidence.

At McKoon, Williams, Atchley & Stanley, PLLC, your attorney can recommend the best course of action for your civil litigation lawsuit and, based on experience, give you an honest assessment of your case. If a settlement is not possible, your civil litigation lawyer is fully prepared to take your case to court. Your goals, as a client, will always have first priority.
