The origin of term “litigation” is dated back to the 1560s, in the Latin culture. Litigation means the act of seeking legal action against wrongdoing or responding to an accusation in court. For an accuser to request legal action in a court of law, it is vital for them first to file a complaint with the relevant authorities. The alleged wrongdoer responds to the accusation before the case is eligible for pleading in a court or another negotiation arrangement. The parties involved prepare detailed interrogation questions, documents and pieces of evidence regarding the case, for presentation during the trial in court.
To reduce the time of the discovery stage, attorneys and the judge involved often meet to resolve the issue partially. The judge instructs the jury on how they ought to apply the law in a trial process before retiring to his chambers to examine the case in detail and make a ruling. After a legal action’s application, an unhappy party has the right to appeal to a higher court with the permission of the previous court involved.
A prospective litigation attorney has first to earn a bachelor’s degree before taking a law school admission test. The state then administers a bar exam that analyses the candidate’s ability to practice law in the state. One such candidate, Karl Heideck, attended Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law after graduating from Swarthmore College with a bachelor’s degree in arts in 2003. Karl graduated from law school in 2003 before he began working as an associate. He has a specialization in risk management and compliance. Karl Heideck operates in the greater Philadelphia area with the Jenkinton law firm and Pepper Hamilton LLP. Karl has a rating as a good standing lawyer with eight years of experience in practicing law.
Karl Heideck worked for Conrad O’Brien in 2010 as an associate overseeing the commercial litigation process, government research, tort defense, white collar crimes cases, SEC receivership and banking litigation. In October, Karl joined Pepper Hamilton to manage the litigation process of various fields. Since April 2015, Karl Heideck has worked as a contract attorney for Hire Counsel.
