When Does A Case Go To Civil Court?

Civil law allows people to seek damages for a wide range of noncriminal acts. A wide range of areas of the law, from property law to civil rights law may be handled through the civil court system, either at the state or federal level. The main difference between civil cases and criminal cases is that criminal cases involve acts that are considered to have caused harm to an entire community; civil cases, on the other hand, involve one person or private entity causing harm to another person or entity.

Experienced Guidance Through All Types Of Civil Cases

At Ed Shaw Law, our attorneys practice in a wide range of legal areas, and we believe that’s one of our greatest strengths. You don’t need to know what type of law your problem falls under, or whether you need a lawsuit to address it. That’s our job to figure out.

If you have a problem that you think needs a legal resolution, we invite you to schedule a consultation with a lawyer in Brainerd or St. Cloud. We’ll evaluate your situation and give you straightforward advice on ways to address all legal issues.

If your case needs to go to court, you can count on our experienced litigators to advocate for you every step of the way. But we won’t drag you into a lawsuit if there’s a more efficient solution. Our goal is to resolve your legal issues as effectively — and as cost-effectively — as possible. Read more about our experience with civil legal issues.
