Trust me, you don’t want to work with just any Tacoma civil litigation attorney. Has our team won high-profile cases? Yes. Including an appeal at the Washington State Supreme Court. Our lawyers do have solid track records and impeccable credentials, but as their office dog I feel very qualified to tell you from first hand evidence that they’re also great people.
Glad you asked. Civil lawyers cover a lot of territory. They’re like collies in that respect. Civil law basically refers to the area of law that concerns disputes between people, as opposed to criminal law which focuses on disputes between individuals and society, the government, etc. Because these person-to-person disputes often involve lawsuits, a civil attorney might sometimes be referred to as a civil lawsuit attorney. Tacoma, WA, is home to many civil attorneys. Our civil attorneys live up to both meanings of the word “civil” — polite, down-to-earth people who happen to be very good civil lawyers.
Getting started with a civil lawsuit involves filing a complaint. This starts the litigation process, which can be lengthy and involved. This is just one reason most people don’t sue without the assistance and expertise of an accomplished civil lawsuit lawyer.
