If you are involved in a civil law case, turn to our firm for expert assistance.
In general, legal cases in the U.S. fall into two categories: criminal cases and civil cases. Criminal law deals with behaviors that are considered a danger to or an offense against the state, the public, or society at large such as theft, assault, drunk driving, manslaughter, murder, or other crimes. Civil law, on the other hand, deals with actions that cause injury, damage, or nuisance to a person or business. Civil cases may include negative behaviors such as harassment, defamation, breach of contract, negligence, and other offenses. Here at James M. Snow Law, we concentrate on civil law and are ready to help you with your legal situation.
Civil law cases are often not shown in movies or on TV, so many people are unfamiliar with how they work. In a civil case, a claim is served on an offender. If the two parties can’t settle the issue, the case proceeds to court, where a judge or jury may be called in to resolve it. The goal of this kind of suit is to find the right remedy for the situation, whether that solution is a sum of money to be paid to the injured party or a judgment requiring the offender to desist from that behavior going forward. If you find yourself receiving such a claim, or wish to serve one yourself, our team here at James M. Snow Law can help you navigate that process and achieve the best result.
