More details to this question:
Hi I was wondering if I had a case for a civil suit against a county the brought charges against me. I am an employee for the county and was brought up on criminal charges for doing my job. My charges were dismissed but it took a year and it made the news paper about 5 times with negative attention towards me.  I had to pay my attorney a decent amount of money to represent me and was wondering if I had any legal recourse to help me recover the money I spent and for the embarrassment I suffered

Did you lose your job? Why were the charges dismissed? Also did you file a notice of claim with the county within 90 days of your arrest?. Who brought the charges and what were the charges?

Civil Litigation
Disagreements happen, and if the parties to a dispute cannot reach a mutually agreeable solution, then they may have to turn to the courts for help resolving their disagreement. Civil litigation can be used to resolve all sorts of conflicts, from personal injury cases to contract disputes, from disagreements between neighbors to contested wills. But don't head to court on your own. Whether you're an individual or a small business, defendant or plaintiff, you need the advice and guidance of a litigator who has experience with all aspects of civil litigation. Your attorney can prepare and file the lawsuit while continuing to try to negotiate an out-of-court settlement. And if the disagreement can't be resolved amicably, your lawyer can work with you to develop a strategy, represent you in court and advocate on your behalf during the civil trial.
