Civil Litigation: Although you hope the need does not arise, sometimes you need to hire an attorney to protect your interests. Whether you need to pursue a legal action or defend against one, our attorneys are here to help. Over the years we have represented countless clients in lawsuits over claims that have ranged from personal injury to breach of contract. Regardless of the nature of the claim, we’ll provide honest evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of your case and vigorously represent your interests to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
The practice of family law is delicate and extremely complex. To ensure that your interests are protected, you need an attorney capable of fighting the battles that are necessary and avoiding those that are not. Your attorney should be able to vigorously defend your interests without losing the ability to look at the issues objectively, as a judge or jury will. Should you need legal counsel for a matter involving divorce, property division, child custody, child support, adoption, pre-marital agreements, grandparent visitation, or parental rights, please do not hesitate to call and arrange a consultation.
Taking care in the formation and operation of your business will pay big dividends down the road. In fact, a great deal of litigation could be avoided altogether if business owners would seek legal counsel on the front end, instead of asking for help after an avoidable dispute arises. Our professionals will offer valuable legal counsel for all phases of your business, including formation (LLCs, corporations, and partnerships), business acquisitions/purchases, contracts/agreements, and litigation. From start-up to daily operation, let us help your business achieve its goals.
