After my initial conversations with both Mr. Denson and his assistant, Betty, I knew this was the firm to use. They helped me avoid getting points on my license from two traffic citations that I earned within less than a week, both for the same violation. It was a really friendly experience and didn't feel like I was going through the legal system at all! 5/5, would definitely go straight to The Denson Firm again without hesitation.

Does Restitution In A Criminal Case Preclude Civil Recovery?

Restitution in a criminal case doesn’t preclude civil recovery. Any amount ordered as restitution in a criminal case can be set off against any judgment in a civil case, but it doesn’t preclude you from being sued civilly. In fact, if restitution is ordered in a criminal case, you will most likely be precluded from denying liability in the civil matter. If you’re facing a criminal charge and a related civil lawsuit, it is essential that you consult with an attorney that can help you craft a resolution of the criminal case in a fashion that best preserves your possible defenses in the civil suit. Otherwise, resolving the criminal case may hamper your ability to defend yourself in a civil lawsuit.
