Our civil law sections have been divided into categories and concepts with detailed explanations as well as supplemental videos. Our intent is to educate our clients an the public as to the concepts and issues surrounding a civil law case so they are better prepared for the process and have an idea of what some of the moving parts are. Civil law is different and distinct from criminal law: mainly because all arguments boil down to time, money or politics. We recognize this and litigate accordingly.
Civil law encompasses a wide range of legal topics. As such, when you seek an attorney to help you with your legal needs, it's never a case of one size fits all. The primary difference between this and criminal law is that civil cases involve disputes between private parties. When you need an attorney to work on civil cases, look to Rhodes Legal Group as we have the partners and staff members who can provide you with sound legal advice and see your case through to fruition.
What Are Civil System Concepts?
Civil legal systems, also called Romano-Germanic legal systems, are based on concepts that have their basis in ancient Roman laws. They are sometimes supplemented or modified by local customs or culture. Legal civil traditions, although secularized over centuries, focus on individual freedoms and promote cooperation among humans.
The more narrow definition of civil legal topics refers to laws that pertain to individuals, things and relationships that develop naturally. They also incorporate civil codes that have developed in different western countries. No matter what their origin, civil laws can still be complex and require specialization.
