The right to litigate in court is one of the most important and fundamental rights guaranteed under the U.S. and Ohio constitutions. Whether as a plaintiff or defendant, litigation provides an opportunity to seek justice for wrongs in court. Litigation provides a check on the power of government and other entities with the resources to take advantage of those without. An attorney grants access to the court system. The right attorney gives litigants a chance to obtain resolution to a dispute, whether through settlement or trial.
