Civil Cases

Our attorneys have handled hundreds of civil cases, ranging from property disputes to small claims court, and everything in between.

What's the difference between criminal and civil cases? In criminal cases, the prosecution (essentially the "Plaintiff") doesn't represent a private party, but rather the state in which the trial is occurring, and the penalties may involve jail or prison time. Conversely, in civil matters, both parties represent their own respective private interests, and the court cannot impose any jail or prison sentences.

While some civil cases can be resolved amicably through pre-litigation negotiations and mediation, others are not so simple. We cover civil law cases in the following areas: 
Family law
Contract disputes
Business & Nonprofit formation
Small Claims matters
Debt collections
Property disputes
Some Civil Rights claims

While it's true that people and entities are representing themselves in civil matters, having an experienced attorney to act as legal counsel and guide you through the process can make matters much easier and drastically increase your chances of winning your case. If you have a civil matter you'd like to discuss, please call our office to set up a consultation with one of our civil law attorneys at 405-360-8036.
