Practice Areas

Civil Litigation. Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that are seeking compensation (generally in the form of money) for damages they have experienced. Cases of civil litigation includes landlord/tenant disputes, environmental law, personal injury, intellectual property, real estate issues, worker’s compensation, wrongful termination and other labor disputes. These cases may be handled by a court proceeding or in mediation.

Bankruptcy. Several types of bankruptcy exist under the Bankruptcy Code. Chapter 7 is a liquidation proceeding that involves the collection and distribution to creditors of all the bankrupt party's property by a trustee. Chapters 11, 12 and 13 involve the rehabilitation and reorganization, rather than liquidation, of the debt and the creditor looks to future earnings of the insolvent party rather than property held by the debtor.

Family law. Family law is a practice area that encompasses the legal issues that face families. These issues include:

  • Divorce
  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Custody
  • Division of assets and liabilities due to divorce
  • Adoption
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Paternity
  • Dependency and child neglect
  • Protection from abuse

Collaborative Law. Collaborative Law is a form of dispute resolution in which both parties to the dispute retain separate, specially-trained lawyers whose only job is to help them settle the dispute. Collaborative law is often used in family law cases, such as divorce and child support.

Corporate Law. Corporate law relates to the laws governing a corporation and its shareholders. Corporate lawyers, having knowledge of statutory laws and regulations passed by government agencies, ensure the legality of commercial transactions while protecting shareholders’ rights.

Criminal Law. Criminal Law deals with the definition of crime and the prosecution and punishment of offenders. When someone has been charged with a crime, they are considered innocent until proven guilty, with proof of guilt being the responsibility of the state. An individual charged with a crime may employ an attorney to defend them in court against such allegations and/or to reduce any sentencing or punishment.

Personal Injury Law. Personal injury is a legal term for injury to an individual’s body, emotions, or mind ( as opposed to injury or destruction of a material item or piece of property). Many cases of personal injury are the result of the negligent actions of a second party. If it can be proved that such second party is as fault for injuries, the victim may be entitled to monetary compensation. Cases of personal injury may involve vehicular accidents, faulty products, workplace injuries, nursing home neglect, slip and falls, and medical malpractice.
