Litigation Overview

Experience Counts

Disputes happen in all walks of life. They are a part of human interaction and range from a mere difference of opinion to something more formal, more confrontational and even conflict. Sometimes, disputes even end up in litigation and go to court. Burton Law Firm’s acclaimed group of legal professionals consists of top-tier attorneys and staff that provide a full spectrum of services.

The Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution, part of the Bill of Rights, codifies your right to a jury trial in most civil cases. You also have the right to the fact determination function of a jury, something which is also preserved in the Seventh Amendment. Access to the court system is also protected by many state constitutions, including California.
