As Christians, we are to seek peace, pursue peace, and be peacemakers (Psalm 34:1, 1 Peter 3:11, Matthew 5:9, Romans 12:18).  But sometimes, despite our best efforts, civil litigation is inevitable.  In those cases were litigation can’t be avoided, we have God’s Word (the Bible) to provide us principles to employ for our success in the litigation arena.

Litigation is normally contentious.  It is often a type of civil war. 

Before or during litigation, early, wise, careful, and strategic litigation planning can spell the difference between success and defeat. 

The Bible says:

“[Every] purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.” Proverbs 20:18.

“For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counselors [there is] safety.”  Proverbs 24:6

These verses instruct us that when we litigate, we should:

(1) Obtain "good advice"

(2) Seek advice from "wise counsel" and

(3) Obtain advice from a “multitude” of counselors. 

You may have already retained a lawyer.  Maybe you haven’t.

Depending on the monetary size of the case, based on the Word of God, prayerfully consider gathering three, four or more attorneys to meet for a few hours or more to brainstorm and plot a wise and potentially brilliant course of action for your case.

In the long run, you will may well save time, effort, energy, and money.

It has been the experience of a number of lawyers that three or more lawyers brainstorming together can come up with strategies far superior than one attorney alone.  Multiple attorneys creatively planning together will can often formulate practical and creative ideas and plans that one attorney alone might never think of. 

You can perhaps afford only one attorney to handle your case.  But if you have a sizeable amount of money or assets at stake, I encourage you to consider utilizing a war room planning session with “multiple” attorneys (Proverbs 24:6).

This will help level the playing field where your adversary has greater financial resources than you do.

You might consider suggesting this war room strategy to your attorney if you have one.  Your attorney can probably assemble a team for such a session.

I can assemble a war room team for you -- a team of seasoned, experienced, wise, and  successful Christian litigation attorneys.

If you have a smaller matter, you can still utilize the same principals and techniques, except that you will probably have to scale down. 

Remember also, you have two divine lawyers with you all of the time, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, even if you have a small claims matter, you can seek wise counsel from certain trustworthy, privacy sensitive Christian friends, clergy, spouse, and/or family and, of course, seek and receive wisdom from our all-knowing God who promises to straightforwardly give it to you (Proverbs 2:6, James 1:5).   However,  before  utilizing a non-attorney  for  this  purpose,  seek legal counsel regarding the risk (and/or minimizing the risk) of losing the confidentiality privilege.
