Litigation Services

To Sue or be Sued

Whether you were involved in an accident and wish to claim compensation for damages or a summons has been ussued against you, you will need a reliable and knowledgeable attorney to represent you during the litigation process.

Litigation emanates from different causes of actions, which may include evictions, divorces, personal injury, claims for damages or even insurance claims and are instituted by the issuing of a summons against the defendant in the Magistrates Court or even the High Court.

The defendant will in all probability, after receipt of the summons, enter a notice of intention to defend the action, which must be done as soon as possible after receiving the summons.

The rules of court prescribes the procedure to be followed untill the matter is heard in court and an order is granted. A large percentile of such matter are however settled before the hearing.

The value of an experienced and knowlegeable litigation attorney will prove invaluable specifically if your attorney also supports you during this difficult time.
