Areas of Practice / Civil Litigation

What is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation is the process of resolving non-criminal legal disputes through the court system. These disputes can involve anything from contracts and property damage, to personal injury and wrongful death.

Our experienced civil litigation attorneys can help you navigate the court system and ensure that your rights are protected. They can also help you recover damages if you have been harmed by another party.

Major Areas of Civil Litigation:

  • Tort law: deals with personal injury claims, such as those arising from car accidents, workers compensation claims, or medical malpractice.
  • Contract law: governs disputes between parties to a contract, such as a business contract.
  • Property law: deals with disputes over ownership or possession of property, such as a piece of land or acreage boundaries.
  • Employment law: deals with disputes between employers and employees, such as claims of wrongful termination or discrimination.
  • Consumer law: protects consumers from unfair or deceptive business practices, such as false advertising.
  • Intellectual property law: deals with disputes over intellectual property, such as patents or trademarks.

How Do I Know Which Legal Area My Case Falls Under?

The legal area that your case falls under will determine which court you will file your case in, as well as the types of claims that you can bring.

For example, if you were in a car accident and were injured, your case would fall under tort law and you would file your claim in civil court. However, if you are disputing the ownership of a piece of property, your case would fall under property law and you would file your claim in either state or federal court.

You should always consult with an experienced attorney to determine which legal area your case falls under and what type of claim you can bring.

What’s the Difference Between Civil Cases and Criminal Cases?

Civil cases are private disputes between two or more parties. The goal of civil litigation is to resolve the dispute through negotiation, mediation, or trial.

Criminal cases are brought by the government against an individual or business accused of breaking the law. Unlike civil litigation, the goal of criminal litigation is to either acquit or convict the accused of crimes committed.
