Experienced Civil Litigation and Criminal Defense Attorneys for any Legal Situation
The term civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is known as a litigator or trial lawyer. Several common types of civil litigation include environmental law, housing law, products liability, intellectual property, labor and employment, and antitrust.
Crimes are usually categorized as felonies or misdemeanors based on their nature and the maximum punishment that can be imposed. A felony involves serious misconduct that is punishable by death or by imprisonment for more than one year. Crimes that do not amount to felonies are misdemeanors or violations. Lesser offenses, such as traffic and parking infractions, are often called violations and are considered a part of criminal law.

Personal Injury/Wrongful Death
Typically, personal injury claims are the result of the negligence of another person. A personal injury claim, by definition, DOES include claims for the death of a family member by wrongful means (wrongful death claims).
Family law deals with family-related issues and domestic relations. Most family law practices focus on representing clients in a divorce and the issues related to divorce such as the division of marital property, child custody, support, alimony, estate and wills and testaments.
