How Civil Law Is Different From Criminal Law

Every practice area of law is a little bit different, and getting optimal results may come down to having an attorney uniquely skilled at handling your particular challenge. There’s a big distinction between the jobs of a civil defense lawyer and that of a criminal defense attorney. 

Important differences between the civil law process and the criminal courts include: 

  • Who the dispute is between: A civil case is a dispute between two private entities, be they individuals or organizations. A criminal case involves charges being brought by the government.
  • The consequences: Depending on the charges, a criminal case could result in prison time. Negative consequences in a civil case are typically financial in nature. 
  • The burden of proof: A criminal defense lawyer need only prove reasonable doubt about their client’s guilt. While each civil case is different,  the defense lawyer must usually prove it's more likely than not their client is in the right. It is a higher bar to clear.

When Do You Need a Civil Defense Lawyer?

As noted above, people need civil defense counsel anytime they have a legal dispute with another private entity. 

Some of the most common reasons for seeking out a civil defense attorney from our Miami Lakes office include: 

  • Lawsuits: This can encompass a wide range of scenarios, including personal injury claims.
  • Regulatory compliance: When you become the subject of a government investigation, our legal counsel can become invaluable. This can include matters related to environmental regulations, securities laws, healthcare compliance, or inquiries into business practices. 
  • Contractual disputes: Whether they involve disagreements over terms, performance obligations, or breach of contract allegations, having our proficient civil defense lawyer may make a significant difference in resolving such disputes. 
  • Property disputes: From questions about property boundaries, ownership rights, zoning issues, or landlord-tenant disputes, we can provide guidance you can trust. 
  • Professional liability allegations: We can mount a strong legal defense, aimed at protecting your professional reputation and financial well-being.
  • Business disputes: In the event of business dissolution, partnership disagreements, or shareholder disputes, our civil defense lawyer can offer strategic counsel and representation, and work to safeguard your interests. 
  • Employment law: From wrongful termination claims and discrimination allegations to wage disputes and non-compete agreement conflicts, employment law can be complex and contentious.
