Researching legal questions can be tough.  Knowing what is your legal issue, how to research it, and how to get the help you need are some of the first obstacles to overcome.

Is this a true legal issue?  Ask is this a criminal or civil case? Which laws apply—municipal, state, federal? And, what area of the law represents your issue? Once you have answers to these questions, you can start researching and learning about possible outcomes and next steps.

Do you need a lawyer?  First you need to know whether you have a legal issue or simply a problem.  Maybe you don’t like your neighbor yelling loudly during the day. But, if they’re not breaking any laws, what you have is a personal matter, not a legal one.

A legal problem is one that can be solved by using the law. It’s an issue that’s addressed within federal, state, or municipal laws and regulations.

There are two main types of legal issues: criminal matters and civil matters. In criminal cases, the government prosecutes the case. In civil cases, the person bringing the suit hires an attorney to prosecute. If you’ve been arrested, you’re looking at a criminal matter, but depending on the circumstances, it could be a civil matter as well.

Civil lawsuits are easier to win because the burden of proof is lower. And it’s not necessarily one or the other. There can be a criminal case and a civil case for the same matter. If you’re considering whether or not to sue someone, or you have been sued, you’re looking at a civil matter.
