Personal Injury Law
Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.
Real Estate Law
Real estate law encompasses the purchase and sale of real property, meaning land and any structure on it. It also covers legal issues related to anything that is attached to the property or structures, such as appliances and fixtures.
Probate is the process of proving a last will and testament, which means verifying that the will is legal and the deceased person's intentions are carried out. Probate also occurs when there is no will and a probate court must decide how to distribute the assets of the deceased's estate to his or her loved ones.
Estate planning is the preparation of tasks that serve to manage an individual's asset base in the event of their incapacitation or death. The planning includes the bequest of assets to heirs and the settlement of estate taxes. Most estate plans are set up with the help of an attorney experienced in estate law.
We strongly believe in the rights of people who have been injured by negligent or wrongful actions to recover compensation for their losses, and we help them to recover the benefits that they deserve through our personal injury practice. Our lawyers also conduct mediations in order to help people to reach resolutions of their disputes as an alternative to court litigation. We are also able to help our clients with their real estate transactions, including title searches, sales and purchase agreements and everything that is involved up through the closings. On top of this, we have much experience assisting people with their estate plans and are able to draft the estate-planning documents that they need.
