American Bar Association Glossary
The Court recognizes that some of the legal terms and phrases used in this website may be unfamiliar to the viewer. To help answer questions, a link has been provided to the glossary developed by the American Bar Association. Both the glossary and this website are intended to provide general information related to the courts and legal system. Neither resource intends to address particular legal problems or provide legal advice. If you have a question about a particular legal matter, you should consult with an attorney. As legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, and laws are constantly changing, nothing provided herein should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent counsel.
