The term "business litigation" can mean a variety of things. The most common types of business litigation include the following: disputes surrounding the assets and/or control of a business, breach of contract claims, misappropriation of trade secrets, violations of non-compete and non-solicitation clauses, compliance issues, and business torts such as fraud, misrepresentation, conversion and interference with contracts. All of these types of claims vary in their complexity and risk. We can provide cost-effective strategies and legal solutions. We work to understand the unique complexities of your business so we can best represent your interests at trial, on appeal, or during settlement discussions. We are prepared, responsive, and able to protect your company's rights at every level of the litigation process.
Employment litigation involves those situations in which an employee suffered unfair treatment in connection with his/her job. Often this means the employee has been terminated wrongfully or in breach of an employment contract. Sometimes, the employee hasn't been officially terminated, but has suffered from discrimination or harassment on the job. Our attorneys have considerable experience pursuing wrongful termination claims and helping protect the rights of employees. If you are experiencing unfair treatment or have been wrongfully terminated, we may be able to help.
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution mechanism which gives the parties control over the resolution of their case. Unlike at trial, the parties actively participate in constructing a mutually-agreeable resolution to their lawsuit through the use of a neutral third party, called a mediator.
Personal injury involves situations in which someone has been injured due to the fault of another. Typical examples include automobile accidents, injuries sustained due to hazards found on someone else's property, defective products and/or medical devices, death caused by someone else, and intentional acts which cause harm.
Probate litigation typically involves disputes over a loved one's Will or Trust. It also encompasses, among other things, disputes over a loved one's assets, Power of Attorney abuse, and disputes over designation of beneficiaries. If you believe you have been wrongfully excluded from a Will or Trust, have had a loved one's assets wrongfully withheld from you, or need assistance with another probate-related dispute, we can help.
Probate practice involves estate administration, guardianships and estate planning (i.e., the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Deeds, Powers of Attorney and other documents). We help people manage the affairs of those who have died or are incompetent, and those who wish to put their affairs in order while they are still alive.
