Civil Litigation includes everything from simple disputes to highly contested and complex business disputes and I have handled countless commercial litigation cases both on behalf of Plaintiffs and Defendants. These have included simple breach of contract claims, complex issues of fact and law, and appeals. Once you are served with a complaint/lawsuit, you have a set amount of time to respond which is typically 20 days in Florida. If you fail to timely respond, you may have a default entered against you.
Some civil litigation cases are directly related to business activities while others are only remotely related so you need an attorney like me who has a broad base of litigation experience to guide you through the legal process. Remember, every complaint/lawsuit is important and ignoring the action will not make it go away.
