The Real Estate Litigation Process

Here is an overview of how a lawyer typically handles real estate litigation:

  • Case Assessment: A real estate litigation lawyer will thoroughly review the details of your case, including relevant documents, contracts, and evidence. They will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses and identify potential legal claims or defenses.
  • Legal Research: Your attorney will conduct extensive legal research to identify applicable laws, statutes, regulations, and precedents that are relevant to the case.
  • Strategy Development: Based on the case assessment and legal research, your lawyer will develop a strategic plan to achieve the client’s desired outcome. This plan may include negotiation, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), or litigation.
  • Pretrial Actions: Your attorney will initiate necessary pretrial actions, such as filing pleadings, motions, and discovery requests. They will gather and analyze evidence, interview witnesses, and engage in the discovery process to obtain relevant information from the opposing party.
  • Negotiation and Settlement: Your lawyer will engage in negotiation and settlement discussions with the opposing party or their legal representatives. They will advocate for you or your company’s best interests, explore potential settlement options, and work towards a fair and favorable resolution.
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR): In some cases, your attorney may recommend alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation or arbitration. They will guide you through these processes to work towards a mutually acceptable resolution.
  • Trial Preparation: If the case proceeds to trial, your lawyer will meticulously prepare for the courtroom proceedings. Doing so involves developing a trial strategy, preparing witnesses, drafting trial briefs, and organizing evidence.
  • Courtroom Representation: During the trial, your attorney will present your case in court and challenge the opposing party’s arguments, including making opening statements, examining witnesses, cross-examining opposing witnesses, introducing evidence, and delivering compelling closing arguments.
  • Post-Trial Actions: After a judgment is rendered, the lawyer will guide the client through any necessary post-trial actions, such as enforcing the judgment or appealing an unfavorable decision, if appropriate.

Throughout the entire process, your real estate litigation lawyer will leverage their legal expertise, negotiation skills, courtroom advocacy, and case management abilities to guide the case towards a successful resolution.
