In Civil Litigation

Litigation doesn’t stand still.  There is no such thing.

One of the Latin verbs that forms the etymological history of litigation is “agere” which  means to set in motion, or to drive forward.

That phrase, “drive forward” inspires us at the Maddox Law Firm.  It matches who we are and our mission.

We set your case in motion from the very first moment that you join forces with us.  That motion is toward trial.

A lawsuit, and correct legal representation in a lawsuit is like a shark; it is constantly moving, relentless.

Yes, you may never need to be in trial, but the movement, preparation and building of your case must have trial as its “true north”.   Otherwise, your conclusion, whether through settlement or trial, will never fulfill its best, highest destiny.

Litigation’s ultimate destination is the result of hours, days, weeks, months and sometimes years of persistent, inexorable fighting for the absolute best result that can be won.  There is no stopping.  There is no fatigue.  Only forward motion.

If you need legal representation that relentlessly, continuously drives you and your case forward, call the Maddox Law Firm today.

litigation (n.)

meaning to dispute, quarrel, sue
“act of carrying on a lawsuit,” 1640s, from Late Latin litigationem (nominative litigatio), noun of action from past-participle stem of Latin litigare “to dispute, quarrel; sue, go to court,” from phrase litem agere “to drive a suit,” from litem (nominative lis) “lawsuit, dispute, quarrel, strife” (which is of uncertain origin) + agere “to set in motion, drive forward” (from PIE root *ag- “to drive, draw out or forth, move”). The word was earlier in English in a now obsolete sense “disputation” (1560s). Other legal terms in English from Latin lis included litiscontestation (15c.), litispendence (17c.).
