Criminal law involves prosecution by the government of a person for an act that has been classified as a crime. Civil cases, on the other hand, involve individuals and organizations seeking to resolve legal disputes. In a criminal case the state, through a prosecutor, initiates the suit, while in a civil case the victim brings the suit. Persons convicted of a crime may be incarcerated, fined, or both. However, persons found liable in a civil case may only have to give up property or pay money, but are not incarcerated. A "crime" is any act or omission (of an act) in violation of a public law forbidding or commanding it. Though there are some common law crimes, most crimes in the United States are established by local, state, and federal governments. Criminal laws vary significantly from state to state.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Should you choose a large lawyer or a small lawyer:
    The size of a law firm has no relation to how well your case will be taken up. A large law firm may seem well staffed and having a great office, but what you must see is whether they will take out enough time and effort towards your case. Large firms receive large cases that would figure above smaller cases in their priority list. A law firm with over 10 lawyers on its rolls can be considered a large firm.

  • Always make a comparison before choosing a lawyer:
    Before you choose a lawyer always make a good comparison by asking colleagues, friends and people associated with the legal profession. You can get some important information, which you would not get by simply visiting the law firm in question. Another good comparison is by finding out what other lawyers and legal web sites think about the law firm. A good site to find out about the standing of lawyers is www.martindale.com
