Our Philosophy

How the Law Works

Corpus Christi CourthouseSimply stated, the law is divided into two major areas: Criminal and Civil. Criminal cases involve government prosecution of individuals charged with illegal conduct, such as robbery or murder. Civil cases are those dealing with family law, corporate law, and lawsuits brought by one individual against another. Personal injury cases fall under the jurisdiction of civil law.

Just as medical doctors today may be trained as specialists in one particular area of health care, attorneys may also specialize in practice areas such as corporate, family, or personal injury law. It is critically important for an individual needing legal counsel to seek out an attorney with the appropriately matched skills and experience.

In a civil suit involving a personal injury complaint, the person who suffers damages is known as the plaintiff. The person or entity accused of causing the injury or damage is known as the defendant. The objective of a personal injury lawsuit is to obtain justice in the form of compensation for the plaintiff on whose behalf the suit is filed.
