Civil Litigation

Civil Lawyer in Athens GA

It’s never easy to be involved in a lawsuit, no matter the circumstances. The laws and regulations governing business transactions, business partnerships, real estate, construction, and contracts can be confusing and complex to everyday people. Most folks do not have regular interactions with the court system, and the process of going through a lawsuit can be intimidating and scary. That’s why you should hire a civil litigation lawyer.

The Civil Court Process in Georgia

Civil courts work a bit differently from criminal courts, and it can be hard to understand what you have to prove in order to win your case. That’s because civil courts cover a much broader range of issues than criminal courts do, and the question of fault isn’t always clear. Land disputes, Landlord/tenant disputes, breach of contract, disputes over construction, business and partnership disputes, all of these cases are different, and they all involve different sets of laws and expectations.

Additionally, each of those case areas has an almost limitless number of situations that can result in a case. Given that, it’s not hard to see how understanding what you do and don’t have to prove, and what does and doesn’t constitute proof in a civil case can easily get overwhelming.
