Bollier Ciccone LLP is an experienced litigation and trial law firm. The firm’s partners have extensive trial and litigation experience and their judgment and problem solving skills have been critical to the firm’s success and trial track record.

The ability to know when a party is likely to prevail at trial is fundamental to almost all legal issues ranging from contract negotiation to property division during a divorce.

Having an understanding of which issues really matter to the bottom line is what is truly important. Often times litigants will argue for the sake of fighting, but picking and choosing the right battles can make all the difference.

Litigation
Litigation refers to a situation wherein one party files a formal lawsuit against another party in a court of law.  It is when a case is filed in court to enforce a particular right(s) and it involves a series of steps that may lead to a court trial and resolution of the dispute. More information regarding litigation and the litigation process can found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawsuit and https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/litigation.

Arbitration
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution. Arbitration is the process of litigating a dispute through an arbitrator rather than the court system. Arbitrators are attorneys acting as a private judge and hearing your dispute and then issuing a ruling. Most arbitrations are administered through the American Arbitration Association and more information can be found at https://www.adr.org/Arbitration.

Mediation
Mediation is a common form of alternative dispute resolution that is required by most courts in the State of Texas. Mediation is a voluntary process whereby the parties informally attempt to facilitate a resolution to their dispute through the use of a neutral third-party, the mediator.  More information on mediation can be found at https://www.adr.org/Mediation.
