Civil Litigation Defense Lawyers In Robert Lee Texas

Robert Lee is a city in and the county seat of Coke County, Texas, United States. The founders named the city after Robert E. Lee, who is thought to have set up camp for a time near the current townsite on the Colorado River. Lee served in Texas from 1856 to 1861 as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Second Cavalry, during which time he distinguished himself as a scout and engineer. The population was 1,171 at the 2000 census. The town of Robert Lee is located on the Colorado River. Just upstream from the town is E.V. Spence Reservoir, managed by the Colorado River Municipal Water District. From the mid-1960s until approximately 1996, the reservoir's population of striped bass attracted sportsmen from across the southwestern U.S. , providing significant income to the town. In the late 1990s, however, water use policies changed and the reservoir water levels continuously lowered until the striped bass population could no longer be sustained. In addition to a once-great fishery, the area around Robert Lee supports a significant population of white tailed deer, which can be a nuisance to local ranchers and farmers but attracts large numbers of hunters during the annual hunting seasons. A very diverse set of wildlife occurs in the area, both native and migratory. Several species of birds, reptiles, and mammals make this part of Texas their home on either a temporary or permanent basis. There is also a rich Native American history in and around the town. Indian relics and artifacts such as arrowheads, spearpoints, and other tools are commonly found on lands near Robert Lee.

What is civil litigation defense?

Civil law, as opposed to criminal law, is the branch of law dealing with disputes between individuals and/or organizations, in which compensation may be awarded to the victim. For instance, if a car crash victim claims damages against the driver for loss or injury sustained in an accident, this will be a civil law case. Civil law courts provide a forum for deciding disputes involving torts (such as accidents, negligence, and libel), contract disputes, the probate of wills, trusts, property disputes, administrative law, commercial law, and any other private matters that involve private parties or organizations including government departments. The objectives of civil law are different from other types of law. In civil law there is the attempt to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or settle a dispute. If there is a victim, they get compensation, and the person who is the cause of the wrong pays, this being a civilized form of, or legal alternative to, revenge.
