Uncommon Facts About Civil Law

From time to time, we all need a lawyer to help us.

Civil law involves disputes between private parties. An example of civil law would be disputes among companies that cannot agree on the terms of services. Regardless of how small, they may need to be resolved in court. A lawyer's help is crucial in this process.

Civil Court services cover the following:

Collections

Civil court collection matters involve the return of money. When someone owes you money, you can take them to civil court. This also includes cases of monetary theft.

Wills and trusts

A lawyer can assist with creating a complete estate plan for you or your loved ones. A complete estate plan will include a will and trust. A will is a legal document that dictates who will receive your property in the event of your death. It will also outline who will be the legal representative to carry out your wishes. A trust is a legal agreement where a person or entity holds property for another person. A trust can be set up at any time.

Landlord and tenant issues

These cases involve disputes between the owner of a property and the party renting it. Examples of landlord and tenant issues include lack of rent payment, unaddressed property health hazards, eviction, and contract forfeiture.

Small business representation

Many important decisions about the structure of a new business need to be considered in advance. A lawyer offers advice to potential small businesses on corporate formation and can help choose the best entity under which to operate--—i.e. a partnership, a corporation or a sole proprietorship. Attorneys can also assist a small business on matters such as the acquisition or sale of assets, and compliance with local and state regulations.
