    The best civil lawyers have to be well versed in the procedure of civil proceedings:


    The institution of the suit starts by filing the plaint in the civil court. The plaint shall contain a factual summary of the case which is filed by the plaintiff. Cause of action is to be established and so is the jurisdiction of the competent court. The plaint needs to have a specific spirit which leads to the certain and specific allegation on the defendant which can be corroborated by evidence. A plaint should not be vague or base its content merely on hearsay.


    A plaint is replied through written statement submitted by the defendant. A written statement is an expression of rejection or acceptance of the averments made in the plaint by the plaintiff. A written statement needs to be carefully drafted and a para-wise reply is to be furnished wherein specific denial and acceptance are pleaded. Also, it has to be made sure, that whereby a denial is maintained, if at all there are facts in contradiction, they are to be brought in the statement, and subsequently evidence regarding the same is to be led by the defendant.


    Objection/ concerns against the written statement are presented by the plaintiff by way of filing the rejoinder. This process necessarily has to be timely completed.


    The evidence is led by both the sides following the provisions of Indian Evidence Act. This is the most ticklish and important process of the court procedure and one needs an expert advocate to tactfully and wisely handle this stage of proceedings. The entire case and its fate depend on evidence and how it is led by the parties. It becomes important to challenge the validity of opposition’s evidence and statements and bring out any contradictions to the front. A good advocate ensures that each piece of opposition’s evidence goes through certain tests of validity in law and only thereafter is accepted by the court as valid evidence. This is the stage where efficient advocates sometimes have to guide the courts in the interest of justice to not accept as evidence something which stands invalid as per the laws of India and provisions of Indian Evidence Act.


    The stage of Arguments is when the matter is argued before the court by both the parties to bring out the merit in their case. One needs an advocate with great oratory skills and courtroom tactics to be able to bring out the best in the case. The aspect of time is limited as the courts are overburdened with work. Therefore, it is important that the advocate delivers all the important points in a cordial manner and with conviction. This is the last stage and an immense effort is needed. The best advocates for civil cases do complete homework and have their arguments fully prepared beforehand.


    The final stage is reached where a judgment and decree is passed by the civil law court. Based on the Statements, Evidence led and the arguments furnished by the learned counsels. The court weighs all factors in a case and reaches a point of decision which the court deems fit, proper and just.


    Finally, the execution is filed to implement the order of the civil law court.

    • APPEAL

    One might think at this stage that the process is over, however, this is where it has just begun. After the lower court, an appeal can be preferred before the District Judge. And then a regular second appeal can be filed before the Hon’ble High Court and thereafter, special leave petition can be filed in the Hon’ble Supreme Court. The limitation for filing a suit should always be kept in the mind. The condonation of delay is not applicable for filing a suit.

    In the end, it can be said that in law, every claim and every case is a weak case until it is strengthened and strongly contested. therefore, it becomes quite essential to settle for nothing but the best civil lawyer who knows the ins and outs of your matter and is willing and passionate to travel that extra mile for his clients in the interest of justice.
