California Civil Litigation Law

"Civil" cases are the cases in which private citizens (or companies) sue each other in court.  Civil cases are not about breaking a criminal law.


Unlike personal injury cases where a person can hire an attorney on a contingency or "no money upfront", civil litigation cases do require a retainer or an upfront payment to the attorney.

Civil litigation encompasses a broad range of disputes; proving fault or negligence and demonstrating the extent of damages or injury can be challenging, most common civil cases in Los Angeles include:


  • General civil cases, usually involving suing someone for money in disputes over things like contracts, damage to property, or someone getting hurt.

  • Family law cases such as divorce, child support, child custody, and adoptions.

  • Landlord/tenant cases

  • Probate cases

  • Juvenile cases

  • Other types of cases like name changes, elder abuse, civil harassment, and many others.


Avoid the mistakes commonly made by those who represent themselves in civil litigation courts. Hiring an experienced civil attorney who has experience in the Los Angeles court system is crucial to ensure the best outcome for your civil case.
