CIVIL LITIGATION

Civil law is the term that refers to non-criminal law. The law relating to civil wrongs and quasi-contracts is part of the civil law, as is law of property (other than property-related crimes, such as theft or vandalism). Civil law may, like criminal law, be divided into substantive law and procedural law. The rights and duties of persons (natural persons and legal persons) amongst themselves is the primary concern of civil law.

It is often suggested that civil proceedings are taken for the purpose of obtaining compensation for injury, and may thus be distinguished from criminal proceedings, whose purpose is to inflict punishment. However, exemplary damages or punitive damages may be awarded in civil proceedings. It was also formerly possible for common informers to sue for a penalty in civil proceedings.

INHERITANCE LITIGATION

Chapters 732 and 733 of the Florida Statutes provide guidelines for what happens when a Florida resident passes.

Intestacy is the condition of the estate of a person who dies without having in force a valid will or other binding declaration. Alternatively, this may also apply where a will or declaration has been made, but only applies to part of the estate; the remaining estate forms the “intestate estate”. Intestacy law, also referred to as the law of descent and distribution, refers to the body of law (statutory and case law) that determines who is entitled to the property from the estate under the rules of inheritance.

Dear Ken,

This is to tell you how much I have appreciated your services and those of your staff.

You quickly assessed the situation, repeatedly took the initiative, persisted in obtaining responses from the others, and you gave strategic direction towards mediation, all of which resolved in a dozen weeks a dispute that had lingered for more than two years.

Your ability to anticipate the Broward Court’s reaction, and to translate the hearings into formal decisions, was remarkable.

So, once again, well done, and thank you so much!
