If you feel you need any legal action taken against another party, this is called litigation. The use of an attorney is not needed in the legal system, but it is highly not recommended. Attorneys are the ones who study the ever changing law system every day. They can help you receive the accurate counseling for your litigation needs.

There can be many different fields in which litigation can take place. Feel free to look through all of The Whipple Law Firm's specialities on our webpage.
