What’s The Difference Between Civil & Criminal Law?

If searching for an attorney, check the field of law practiced.  An Attorney that only practices Criminal Defense typically will not take a Divorce case.  Attorneys often choose a specific or fields to practice in order to become an “expert” in that field.   That being said, there are attorneys that choose to practice multiple fields of law, as some fields overlap with each other.  These attorneys are typically in General Practice.  In law firms with multiple attorneys, each one may concentrate on different aspects of the law.  Research attorneys according to the type of case you have.
