Business Litigation or Civil Litigation is the term used to describe proceedings between two opposing parties to defend or enforce a legal right. Criminal litigation is litigation brought by the state against an individual, while civil litigation is a private lawsuit between two parties. The parties can be individuals or corporations. Although some behaviors and actions can give rise to civil and criminal litigation, civil and criminal trials are always kept separate. Similarly, some divorce actions can give rise to business or civil litigation. Family Law Courts have expansive powers over the division of marital assets which many times can affect your business or contractual rights.  The law firm of Bolivar C. Porta, P.A. has decades of experience in both civil litigation, family law and criminal litigation.

Business Litigation

As a civil litigator, Bolivar C. Porta has represented parties in federal, state and local court trials, mediation and before administrative agencies. Business or Civil litigation encompasses a broad scope of disputes, including breach of contract, medical malpractice, vehicular accidents, products liability, employment, foreclosure defense, and more. Most personal injury cases are settled pre-trial, and negotiations and discovery are included in the litigation process. The goal in personal injury cases is to ensure that injured parties receive fair compensation from the negligent party. Compensatory damage awards include monies for pain and suffering, lost income, medical expenses, disability, loss of companionship and more. Bolivar C. Porta is a detail-oriented lawyer who ensures that all responsible parties are named defendants in the lawsuit and gathers all information to prove negligence, including contractual agreements and expert witness testimony.  For example, in a medical malpractice lawsuit, one healthcare professional may be needed to testify that the treating healthcare professional did not implement the normal standard of care. Attorney Bolivar C. Porta has won many awards for his clients, both pre-trial and trial. Call Us today at (305) 371-5060.
