Civil Litigation

Print Friendly

It is important to understand that not every civil dispute has to end up in court proceedings however, which can be both lengthy and costly. At Tang Law, our litigation lawyers draw on their wealth of knowledge and experience to provide all clients with strategies for achieving the best possible outcome in a timely and cost effective manner, while maintaining a strong work ethic. Our practice lawyers represent parties in trials, arbitration and mediation before administrative agencies, foreign tribunals, and federal, state, and local courts. We are always fully transparent and upfront with our clients about costs, which extends to providing realistic cost estimates.

What is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation is the process of resolving disputes between different parties. Civil disputes can arise from many situations, from a disagreement involving custody rights, or a breach in company contract. A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is known as a litigator or trial lawyer.

And, how about Dispute Resolution?

Dispute resolution is the process by which disputes are brought to an end. This can occur through:

  • a negotiated outcome, where the parties involved sort out things by themselves
  • a mediated outcome, where the parties use an independent mediator to help them arrive at their own agreement and outcome, or
  • an adjudicated or arbitrated outcome, where an independent arbitrator or court determines how to resolve the dispute and makes a binding decision or order that parties need to adhere to.

Magistrates Court – Civil Matters

The Magistrates Court of Western Australia deals with civil matters that involve claims for up to $75,000.

Even if your claim may be more than $75,000, you can still choose to commence legal action in the Magistrates Court of Western Australia.  However, any amount over and above $75,000 cannot be awarded.  For example, if your debt recovery claim is for $100,000, the Magistrates Court can only award the claim for up to $75,000 and the balance $25,000 is waived.
