Civil Litigation occurs when two parties have a dispute in court. Arbitration and Mediation are methods of resolving civil cases short of litigation.


Arbitration can be required by the court for claims less than $50,000. The parties can agree to arbitration for claims in excess of $50,000. The evidence presented is similar to a trial and the arbitrator functions as a judge by rendering a decision of an award. Either party can appeal the arbitrator's decision and the case will proceed to trial in circuit court. For court mandated arbitration cases, the court provides a list of five possible arbitrators. The arbitrator will be one of the five from the list unless the parties all agree to a different arbitrator. Vincent A. Deguc serves as a court arbitrator in five Oregon counties and is available as a private arbitrator in any Oregon county.


Mediation is a process where a mediator assists the parties in coming to an agreement to settle their civil claims. Such an agreement can be entered as an agreed judgment or a dismissal. Vincent A. Deguc is available to serve as a mediator in any Oregon county.


Civil litigation begins when a plaintiff files a lawsuit in court. The defendant must answer or the defendant will be in default and will lose the case. Litigation may include motions, depositions, expert witnesses, investigation of claims, and court appearances. A civil case may last a long time depending on the complexity of the case. Vincent A. Deguc has many years of experience in civil litigation in several Oregon counties.
