Civil Litigation includes just about any non-criminal dispute. The party bringing the suit is typically seeking money from another party to compensate for a claimed injury or loss. Sometimes the remedy sought isn’t financial compensation but performance–one party wants the court to compel another either to do something he is obligated to do or to stop doing something that is injurious to the one filing the lawsuit. In a civil action, the case doesn’t depend on the defendant’s guilt but on the issue of liability — a party is found either liable or not liable. The burden of proof required to establish liability in civil litigation is generally a lower threshold than the “guilt beyond a reasonable doubt” required in a criminal trial.
This can include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Real Estate Litigation
- Lender Liability
- Insurance Claims in Bad Faith
- Breach of Contract
- Debtor Creditor Claims
- Probate and Fiduciary Litigation
- Libel and Slander
