Civil Matters

Civil matters typically involve conflicts between private individuals or entities.  Some civil matters involve the government (local, state, federal).  Generally, if a matter is not a criminal matter, it is civil.   

Common Civil Causes of Action include:

  • Somebody owes another money
    • Breach of Contract
    • Negligence
    • Intentional Wrongdoing or Intentional Tort
  • Detinue - somebody has another's property, or property they have a right to possess
  • Unlawful Detainer - somebody has overstayed their welcome and eviction is sought

There are also civil matters that are collaterally related to criminal matters, including:

  • Restoration of Gun Rights
  • Restoration of Civil Rights
  • Restoration of Driving Privileges
  • Expungement of Criminal Records
  • Protective Orders
  • Civil Asset Forfeiture
  • "Red Flag" Law - Substantial Risk Order
