As a founding member of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine, Todd Levine is no stranger to the ins and outs of litigation but is that the kind of attorney you should be looking for? Todd Levine recently sat down to discuss what exactly a litigation attorney does and whether or not it’s the right option for you. So what is the purview of your average litigation lawyer? Well, long before you ever see the inside of a courtroom, they are responsible for helping you form the most effective strategy to defend yourself so you can emerge victoriously. Of course, in a perfect world, you would never have to go to court in the first place but, unfortunately, this is not always the case. So if you’re having a business dispute, litigators attempt to resolve this conflict.
Two of the ways in which they do that is through arbitration and mediation. You’re probably wondering what the differences between them are. Well, they often classify mediation as a process in which a neutral third party helps the other two resolve their differences in a peaceful manner that is deemed acceptable by both parties. Arbitration, meanwhile, is a process in which the feuding parties select an arbitrator to issue a verdict on their case. While mediation is considered non-binding, arbitration can often go either way. Todd Levine currently has over 25 years of experience as an attorney and is one of the founding members of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine.
While most people think he spends most of his time in a courtroom, Todd Levine prefers to resolve these types of disputes out of court if at all possible. He graduated from the University of Florida Levine College of Law in 1991 and has handled many different types of business disputes.
