Most people in California understand that there are two (2) types of cases:  criminal and civil.  "Criminal" is where the state prosecutes a person for a crime, to put them in jail.  "Civil" is where an individual can sue to get money damages for being abused or injured. 

Avvo.com is a great resource for California consumers.  It can give them a starting point to look for lawyers, or can even get some basic questions answered about basic legal questions (albeit, it is not substitute for retaining a lawyer and getting legal advice).  

However, it is important for people useing Avvo.com to look for child abuse lawyers to understand one very important thing.  A lawyer who handles criminal child abuse cases is not  the same as a lawyer who handles civil child abuse cases.   The laws are different.   The procedure is different.  The ability of the lawyer to understand how to best help the client is different - because their experience is different.   You will have a different experience in your California civil child abuse lawsuit with the right type of lawter - a civil lawyer.

So, be sure that when you contact a California child abuse lawyer through Avvo.com, that you search for a civil lawyer - not a criminal lawyer.

Christopher Keane of The Keane Law Firm has a perfect 10.0 rating from Avvo.com, as a child abuse lawyer.  A civil child abuse lawyer, in California.
