Civil litigation is the process that allows individuals and businesses to utilize the court system to settle disputes. Civil litigation cases generally involve disputes in which the parties seek monetary remedies. Common civil litigation cases include: breach of contract, negligence, property disputes, and family disputes.
Civil Litigation Process
Civil litigation generally advances through the following phases: pleadings, discovery, trial preparation, and trial. However, parties can halt this process by voluntarily settling at any time. In fact, most civil cases are settled before trial.

Breach of Contract
Contracts are prevalent throughout many facets of life. A contract is breached when a contractual promise is broken. In Florida, for an aggrieved party to recover in court for such a breach they must prove three elements: the existence of a contract, a breach of the contract, and damages as a result of the breach. If you are involved in a contract dispute, whether it was you or the other party who violated the terms of the contract, Gonzalez Law is prepared to thoroughly analyze your case, explore your options, and develop the most effective legal strategy for you.
