It is an interesting question and probably asked more than lawyers know. To start, New York State Unified Court System’s glossary defines “litigation” as “a court case or lawsuit. The people involved in lawsuits (plaintiffs and defendants) are called litigants.” Most dictionaries define a litigator as a court room lawyer. It is what people typically think when they watch TV, a lawyer that spends a great deal of time in the courtroom and files lawsuits.

A litigator is foremost, a lawyer, who handles civil lawsuits or disputes between two or more parties. A civil lawsuit is a legal dispute that does not involve criminal charges. But the litigation process or a lawsuit involves numerous phases including investigation, pleadings, discovery, pretrial preparation, trial, settlement, and appeals. A litigator understands how to navigate through these phases on behalf of their clients.

I handle litigation as well as pre-suit investigation, risk prevention, and claims management. I left the big law experience to start a client-centric practice focused on providing unparalleled legal representation that is efficient, solution-based and exceptional in value.
