Role of a Civil Lawyer


A Civil lawyer works on non-criminal legal issues. They focus on cases involving wills, trusts, divorce, child custody, litigation, contracts, mortgages, titles, leases and damage suits, according to The Bureau of Labour Statistics. Civil lawyers solve the problems encountered by the citizens of society and they practice in any field that people interact and conduct business in.

Civil law deals with disputes between individuals and/or organisations—these are disputes between private parties. A lawyer who specialises in civil litigation is known as a litigator or a trial lawyer. Civil litigation covers a broad range of disputes, and litigators generally specialise in one or two specific practice areas. Some of these areas include:
  • Environmental law
  • Landlord/tenant disputes
  • Product liability lawsuits
  • Personal injury claims
  • Intellectual property disputes
  • Construction liability lawsuits
  • Medical malpractice claims
  • Employment and labour disputes
  • Real estate lawsuits
  • Anti-trust litigation
  • Workers’ compensation claims
  • Education law disputes
  • Divorce lawsuits.
In this area, criminal charges and penalties are not an issue
