Our Legal Offerings

Robert E. Kostin Law Offices offer a variety of both civil and criminal legal services to help you with your legal situation.

Civil cases usually pertain to disputes over rights and duties that individuals and organizations may legally owe to one another. In these cases, the plaintiff needs to show a "preponderance of the evidence" (more than 50%) that the defendant is liable. People may pay a fine or give up property, but usually do not go to jail or prison. We would be happy to help you through your civil case, including:

Criminal cases pertain to when the government seeks to punish a person for an act that the Congress, state legislature or local government has classified as a crime (felony or misdemeanor). The prosecutor initiates and maintains the case, defendants are almost always entitled to a jury trial, and the prosecutor must prove a defendant’s guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt.” The convicted party may pay a fine, be jailed/imprisoned, or both. We would be happy to help you through your criminal case, including:

  • Medical Marijuana
  • Homicide
  • Criminal Sexual Conduct
  • Computer Crimes
  • Code/Ordinance Enforcement and/or Tickets Citation
  • Armed Robbery
  • Shoplifting/Retail Fraud
  • Drug Cases
  • Drunk Driving
  • Minor In Possession (MIP)
  • Traffic Tickets
  • Drivers License Registration
  • Misdemeanors and Civil Infractions

As at times the same conduct may violate both criminal and civil laws, a defendant who violates both rules may be prosecuted criminally by the state and sued civilly by a victim for monetary damages. We also can guide you through these situations.
