Here are a few of the civil litigation cases we can take on:

What Makes Civil Cases Different from Criminal Cases?

The civil justice system abides by a lighter standard of proof than criminal cases, requiring only that you show that there was a “preponderance of the evidence” in your favor. Because of this evidentiary standard, it is often easier for victims of criminal wrongdoing – as well as victims of negligence – to get the justice they seek through a civil court proceeding.

While the civil justice system may have different rules and processes compared with the criminal justice system, our Minneapolis civil litigation team is well-equipped to help you fight for your rights in this arena. From the moment you arrive for your free consultation, we will take the opportunity to explore your case and discuss your desired outcome.

Some of the questions we may ask before taking on civil litigation:

  • Are you looking for monetary damages?
  • How much did your injuries and/or losses cost in total?
  • Are you looking to explore a civil restraining order against a third party?
  • Are you willing to pursue your claim all the way to trial if needed?

Working on behalf of both individuals and organizations throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area, our attorneys at Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. will carefully investigate your claim and help you determine the best course of action.

  • Title IX (Sexual Misconduct) Title IX Defense

    Our client was notified by Gustavus College that he was being accused of sexual harassment by a student. Upon learning of the charges, Lis and Joe immediately took action in the matter and worked through the investigation. Our client was innocent of the charges and Lis and Joe did everything they could to exonerate him, and their efforts worked. The investigator found in favor of our client and all accusations were dismissed. Our client was extremely happy with the results.
