Areas of Law Description
Our practice areas include:
- Breach of Contract
Our firm represents businesses and individuals involved with breach of contract claims. We can represent you as a Plaintiff is you have loss money due to a breach of a contract you have entered with another party or we can represent you as a defendant against claims for breach of contract against you or your business.
- Business Law
A business owner faces a myriad of legal issues almost daily. Due to the traditional high cost of legal services, many business owners decide on a "do-it-yourself" approach versus seeking legal advice. It is for this reason that we offer a "General Counsel" program for business owners.
- Buying/Selling a Business
Buying or selling a small business or a franchise is a very important decision that should be handled with caution. Our firm focuses on helping small business owners understand the steps in acquiring or selling a business. If you are buying a business, whether is an independent business or a franchise, we can assist you with the Due Diligence process to ensure that the business that you are acquiring does not come with unexpected surprises.
- Commercial Collections
Cash flow is the “lifeblood” of your business. When clients do not pay for your services, you are providing “free services” that do not help your business. As a business owner it is not uncommon to have several accounts that require professional assistance to collect funds owed to you. Our firm provides clients collection services for commercial accounts.
- Commercial Leases
Your commercial lease could be one of the largest expenses in your business and you do not want surprises. For this reason, it is highly recommended that before you sign a commercial lease, you consult with an attorney experienced in reviewing and negotiating commercial leases.
- Electronic Discovery
Most, if not all, evidence used in today's legal proceedings will be computer generated. Discovery of electronically stored information (known as ESI) is called electronic discovery, or eDiscovery, and encompasses more than document production requests. eDiscovery has emerged as one of the most critical, and least understood phases of litigation.
- Foreclosure Defense
Our foreclosure defense program applies complex commercial litigation strategies in residential foreclosure defense cases. As a homeowner, you may be entitled to raise legal defenses in the event you are served with a foreclosure lawsuit. Our goal is to protect you and your home through effective legal representation.
- Franchise Law
If you are interested in buying a franchise, we recommend that you seek legal advice to assist you in reviewing and understanding the documents. Our role as your legal advisers is to review carefully the franchise documents, negotiate terms with the franchiser, and advise you of your obligations and rights under the franchise agreement.
- Partnership Disputes
Our firm provides plaintiff and defense litigation services to business owners. We can represent you as a Defendant or Plaintiff in most commercial disputes that could arise in a business environment. We have handled cases involving partnership disputes, collections, mediation, enforcement of promissory note, employment agreements, fraud and breach of contract cases among others.
Mediation is a confidential alternative to resolving a legal dispute. Mediations are confidential negotiations conducted by an impartial mediator who will attempt to bring the parties together to an amicable resolution of the case. Mediations are non-binding until an agreement is reached and it is an excellent choice in resolving business disputes.
- Technology/Internet Law
The Internet has become an essential component of virtually every business. Navigating the legal issues related to the web can be complex and confusing. "Internet Law" as an area of practice is relatively new and evolving almost on a daily basis. It is for this reason that business owners who are doing business on the web or are interested in developing an online presence, receive adequate legal advice on the potential areas of liability on the web and how to avoid them.
- Trademark Law
As a firm experienced in Complex Commercial Litigation, we also represent clients who are defendants or plaintiffs in Trademark Infringement and Unfair Competition lawsuits. It is very important that if you are served with a lawsuit, which alleges a violation of a trademark, you should contact an attorney right away and receive the proper legal advice from an attorney experienced with trademark and intellectual property litigation.
