When resolving legal disputes, you may want to ask your attorney:
In many instances, disputes can be resolved without resorting to litigation. From informal mediation or arbitration, to simply negotiating a resolution with an opposing party, we assist our clients in avoiding lengthy and costly litigation, often preventing the loss of a relationship between the involved parties.
Commercial litigation presents complex issues and relationships that do not exist in other disputes. Conflicts may arise between family members, business partners, old friends, important customers, or others. Your livelihood, professional reputation, and financial future could depend on the outcome. Our litigators are business people who understand the complexities presented by commercial disputes. We can help you address the big picture, as well as resolve the issue at hand.
From stockholder derivative suits and employment situations to breach of contract, our team represents your needs. We begin with pre-lawsuit conflict resolution and, if needed, we take your dispute to litigation.
We assist our clients with business, real estate, and estate planning disputes. We also offer advice in a number of other important areas, including personal injury claims, non-criminal traffic violations, employment matters, Liquor Control Commission violations and administrative procedures. In some instances, the best course of action involves consultation with a legal specialist. Our familiarity with a wide range of attorneys and law firms insures that your case is handled by legal experts well-qualified to address your needs.
Sometimes Trustees or Personal Representatives treat Beneficiaries unfairly. Other times, Beneficiaries place undue pressure on the Trustees or Personal Representatives. In either case, we provide legal representation ensuring that the estate or trust runs smoothly. Once issues are resolved, our probate department oversees the continuing administration of the estate or trust to keep new problems in check.
Real Estate disputes create special challenges because the subject of the dispute – real estate – is fixed. Although in some litigation areas, win/win scenarios arise from imaginative resolutions, with real estate, one side typically receives the disputed property. We give our clients an advantage by staying on the cutting edge of real estate law relating to zoning, development rights, construction, and other issues.
