Honolulu Civil Defense Attorneys

Being sued in a civil lawsuit can be extremely daunting. It can cost you money, and time to defend, as well as create a lot of stress in your life. Once a party files a lawsuit against you, the next step is to have you served. Being served means you have formally been informed that you are being sued, who is suing you, and what they are suing you for. You should receive both a summons and compliant. If you do not receive both at the same time, the service may be defective. You will be obligated at that point to file a response to the complaint in a timely manner.

You may be able to challenge the service if it was not served properly. This is where having an attorney is essential. An attorney will be able to determine if service defective or not, as well as prepare defenses against the lawsuit. If you were properly served, you will need to work with your attorney to prepare your best defense. It’s crucial that you are truthful with your attorney and provide them with all documents and information relevant to the lawsuit. Your attorney will need to know everything, even if there is information that could be detrimental to your case. It’s better that your attorney does not get surprised at trial with information you failed to disclose.

Because this is a civil matter and not a criminal matter, the defendant is not facing jail or prison time, but rather a civil penalty that usually involves money. If the court rules in the plaintiff’s favor, a judgment is made. A judgment is usually accompanied by a court order that awards the plaintiff a certain amount of (damages) money that is to be paid by the defendant.

Civil matters may include:

  • Personal Injury
  • Negligence
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Fraud
  • Breach of Contract
  • Evictions
