Civil Law

Civil Law encompasses all law that is not criminal. This area of law mainly involves disputes and lawsuits between two or more parties. Civil actions can involve individual persons, corporations, the government, partnerships, and other entities. Civil Law includes many things such as personal injury, divorce, medical malpractice, car wrecks, contracts as well as many other areas of the law.

Generally, you should speak to an attorney before you talk to anyone about your civil legal problem. This is because generally, anything you say can be used against you in court. A loss in a civil case can result in a money judgment against you and the other party can garnish your wages and seize most of your assets to collect the judgment.

Criminal Law

As Criminal Law Attorneys, we represent and defend you when the state or federal government is prosecuting you for a crime. Typically, the sooner you bring a Criminal Defense Lawyer into the case or investigation, the better the outcome can be for you.

It is generally best to talk to a Criminal Defense Lawyer before you talk to anyone else, including police officers or prosecutors. This is because anything you say can be used against you in court.

Call us immediately before you talk to anyone! Any criminal charge is serious and can cause a loss of your freedom and other serious problems in your life. Do not take a chance with your freedom! Call us immediately at (601) 355-9600.
