Understanding The Litigation Process
Once you have elected to sue or been sued by another person or company you are in litigation. When it’s contested it’s a process that can take a year or longer depending on the complexity of your case. Understanding the steps and procedures involved will help you know what to expect along the way. Here is a concise view. The whole of the litigation is controlled by the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, Florida and to an extent Federal Case Law, and the Florida Statutes. While all individuals can bring claims pro se (or by themselves without an attorney) it its always best to seek the advice and representation of a licensed Florida Attorney when facing any litigation in court.
