Civil Law

Civil law encompasses almost every dispute that is not a criminal law matter. If you find yourself in a dispute with another person or a business, then you are likely involved in a civil dispute. This type of dispute can be very frustrating because you may not know what you can do to get the dispute settled.

Civil Law includes:

  • Personal injury
  • Assault
  • Real Estate disputes
  • Contractual disputes
  • Consumer law and
  • Domestic Relations


People say "I'll sue you," or "you'll hear from my attorney about this!" However, few follow through, and eventually lose the ability to recover civil damages. In most Civil Disputes, it is best to reach out to an attorney sooner rather than later. In Ohio, the statute of limitations could prevent you from recovery if you do not act in a timely manner to pursue. Additionally, several other legal and equitable theories of law may limit your ability to recover, even if you are within the statute of limitations
