Civil Litigation Attorney

If you are considering filing a non-criminal lawsuit or having such a lawsuit filed against you, St. Pete civil litigation attorney Matt Weidner is here to help.

Why Hire a Civil Litigation Attorney?

A civil litigation attorney can help you with a wide range of civil legal proceedings. Some examples of the types of civil proceedings that Weidner Law can represent you for include:

  • Situations where you are being discriminated against or being accused of discrimination
  • Debts that need to be settled or fighting back against unscrupulous debt collecting practices
  • Resolution of an accident after an injury
  • Resolution of a civil dispute
  • Action against a spouse who has stopped sending alimony checks

How Can a Civil Litigation Attorney Help You?

Civil lawsuits may not seem as daunting as criminal lawsuits, however, when you are caught in the middle of one, things can quickly become overwhelming. Fortunately, with the representation of a reputable civil litigation attorney, you can take control of the situation.

Your Civil Litigation Attorney Knows the Law

The biggest benefit of hiring a civil litigation attorney is their knowledge of the law. You can read up on legal proceedings, but without the expertise of a licensed civil litigation lawyer, understanding those legal proceedings is a whole different ballgame. Your attorney will not only be able to walk you through the law in terms that are easy to understand, but they are familiar with recent changes to the law that you may not be familiar with through your own research.

Representing Yourself Decreases Your Chances of Winning Your Case

If you decide to represent yourself (something we refer to as “pro se”), you have a decreased chance of winning your case. The simple fact of the matter is that civil lawsuits have a lower burden of proof than criminal lawsuits which makes it much harder for you to prove your case. A civil litigation lawyer can help you to prove your case convincingly. Additionally, if the other party in the suit has representation and you do not, they have another advantage over you and your chances of winning your case decline even further.

Paperwork, Paperwork, Paperwork

Any legal case requires paperwork and without the assistance of a civil litigation attorney, it’s easy to get lost in confusion. It’s not only important to fill in paperwork correctly, but it’s crucial that paperwork is filed by the necessary deadlines with the correct parties and an experienced civil litigation attorney can take care of this for you.

Your Civil Litigation Lawyer Can Save You Money

The expense of hiring a civil litigation attorney can be what deters many people from hiring one when they need it most. The truth is, however, that not hiring a reputable civil litigation lawyer can cost you far more! Without a full understanding of the legal system and with your personal interests at stake, losing a civil case because you lack adequate representation can wind up costing you more than the fee of an attorney, in some instances, it can cost you your entire livelihood!

Having a Civil Litigation Attorney on Your Side Provides Protection for You and Your Business

Whether you are a small business going through civil litigation or an individual party in a civil litigation case, having a knowledgeable civil litigation attorneyon your team can help to ensure that your business and personal assets are protected. Your attorney can also advise you on future endeavors with your small business to ensure that your business assets always remain protected.
