Q & A

Am I entitled to a court-appointed attorney/public defender in a civil case?

Normally the answer to this question is no. However, depending on income and other qualifications you may be able to get assistance from legal aid organizations or legal clinics at your local law school or university.

What can I get in my civil case?

The recovery or damages that a person can recover in a civil case varies greatly, and it depends on a wide variety of factors. Often times, this answer is also highly unpredictable in jury trials as well. If you are considering a civil case to recover compensation for damages you have incurred, you should discuss all possibilities and impacts such a case can have.

Why is my case taking so long?

The case schedule for civil cases varies greatly from one court to the next, and depends on the efficiency and docket volume of the court. Often times, civil cases take longer than criminal cases. This is for a variety of reasons. First, in most criminal cases defendants have a constitutional right to a fair and speedy trial. This normally results in criminal cases being given priority over civil cases and can also result in several continuances if a court has a large volume of criminal cases. The other reason is that a civil case has many different stages and phases that all take certain amounts of time. For instance, discovery in one case may take several months longer than another case and often depends on the issues and parties involved.
