A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is commonly referred to as a litigator or trial lawyer. Civil litigation is normally divided into seven stages, although a lawsuit does not necessarily need to pass through each stage. The stages are investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeals. Many lawsuits are settled prior to trial, and the cases that do reach a trial verdict are often not appealed. Certain skills and knowledge are essential to an attorney’s ability to navigate this sometimes very lengthy process.
Blake Bailey possesses those skills, and is well-equipped to deal with lawsuits that are not settled before trial, as well as those that do reach a trial verdict and are appealed. There are not many lawyers who can provide representation for you the entire way through this process. Blake’s experience in a wide array of areas of the law gives him a unique opportunity to get to know your situation through and through. More importantly, those who are represented by Mr. Bailey can have peace of mind knowing that he can guide them for the entire journey through the uncertain legal waters, if necessary.
