“Civil Litigation” is basically when two entities, whether they be an individual and/or a corporation and/or the government, have a dispute and the dispute must be resolved by going to court. In Civil Litigation, typically what you are suing for is compensation through monetary damages. Unlike a criminal case where the government is trying to take away an individual’s liberty for wrongful conduct. In a civil case, a case is brought to the Court by a party that has suffered damage due to the wrongful conduct of another. This wrongful conduct could be characterized more specifically as medical malpractice, negligence, breaching a contract, intentional conduct, or reckless conduct. Further, there are various areas of civil practice such as labor law, admiralty law, commercial litigation, products liability, etc. At Roberts & Durkee we specialize in almost all aspects of civil litigation. Each one of these practice areas is identified and explained in further in the following sections.
