In a perfect world, disputes could be resolved through informal discussions between the parties involved. People would talk things through and come to a reasonable solution.
The real world is more complicated, of course. Sometimes, two reasonable people reach an impasse and simply can't find a solution. There has to be some way to permanently resolve the situation and move on.
This is where civil litigation comes in. Society has established courts to help parties peacefully resolve these disputes with the strength of the law behind the solutions. If you find yourself considering some sort of civil action, make sure you choose our experienced litigator.

How Bill Nettles Can Help
What makes for a legal case? When is legal action appropriate? Generally speaking, a civil action is an option when multiple parties are involved in a dispute over some sort of financial matter and cannot resolve the problems themselves.
This doesn't have to be a formal breakdown – in the case of a personal injury action, for instance, it's not required (or even a particularly good idea most of the time) for the injured party to try and work out a settlement with the responsible party. The point is that there are certain situations where legal action represents the only reasonable solution.
Specific examples of the general term "civil litigation" include:
- Personal injury cases
- Business disputes
- Breach of contract claims
- Family law
Obviously, "civil litigation" is a tremendously vague term. Essentially, it refers to any legal action that involves private parties instead of a criminal charge. You can read our page on the differences between civil and criminal cases for more information.
Regardless of the specific nature of your civil action, it's important you have the right lawyer on your side. An experienced, capable attorney can make all the difference in a civil suit.
