TRUST & ESTATE LITIGATION
LITIGATION is the process of taking legal action. Litigators or trial lawyers, represent plaintiffs and defendants in civil lawsuits. They manage all phases of the litigation from the investigation, pleadings, and discovery through the pre-trial, trial, settlement, and appeal processes.
