What is the Purpose of the Civil Justice System?
Cranston & Edwards PLLC — Morgantown, WV
The overarching goal of our legal system is to protect our communities. As attorneys, we make our communities safer places to live, work, and raise our families.
In the United States, we have a criminal and civil justice system. While the criminal justice system determines innocence or guilt and addresses legal offenses on behalf of governmental entities, our civil justice system determines liability and provides a means to settle legal disputes between citizens and other people or corporations.
