We specialize in multiple areas of general litigation, and our experienced lawyers can help you with:

  • Personal injury

Personal injury refers to any physical or mental harm caused to a person as a result of the negligent or intentional actions of another party. This can include a wide range of accidents and incidents, such as car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and product defects. Injuries can vary in severity and may result in pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. Personal injury law allows individuals who have been harmed to seek compensation from those responsible for their injuries, in order to help them recover and move forward from the incident.

  • Insurance disputes

Insurance disputes are legal conflicts that arise between policyholders and insurance companies regarding the terms and coverage of an insurance policy. Such disputes can arise due to a variety of reasons, such as disagreements over policy interpretation, coverage disputes, claim denials, or bad faith practices by the insurer. Insurance disputes can be complex and often require legal representation to resolve. Depending on the nature of the dispute, a policyholder may need to pursue alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation or arbitration, or they may need to take their case to court. In any case, insurance disputes can be a stressful and challenging experience for policyholders, making it important to have experienced legal counsel on their side.

  • Corporate law

Corporate law is a legal field that pertains to the formation, operation, and dissolution of corporations. It covers a wide range of legal matters including corporate governance, securities regulation, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, and employment law. Corporate lawyers advise businesses on a variety of legal issues, such as compliance with government regulations, drafting contracts, and protecting the company's intellectual property. They also represent companies in legal disputes and negotiate deals with other businesses. Given the complexity of corporate law and the potential consequences of legal action, it is crucial for businesses to have knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel.

  • Family law

Family law is a legal area that focuses on issues that arise in family relationships, such as marriage, divorce, child custody, child support, adoption, and domestic violence. The goal of family law is to establish and maintain legal relationships between family members in a way that is fair and just. This includes protecting the rights and interests of all family members, especially children, and ensuring that their well-being is prioritized in any legal proceedings. Family law covers a wide range of topics and can be complex, which is why it is important to seek the advice and representation of an experienced family law attorney when dealing with any family-related legal matter.

  • Estate litigation

Estate law is a legal area that deals with the management, distribution, and transfer of a person's assets and properties after their death. It involves planning for the administration of an individual's estate, including the preparation of wills, trusts, and other legal documents to ensure that their property is distributed according to their wishes. Estate law also encompasses issues related to estate taxes, probate, and the appointment of guardians or conservators for minor children or incapacitated adults. A well-crafted estate plan can help individuals protect their assets and provide for their loved ones, and it is often recommended to consult with an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure that their wishes are properly documented and legally binding.

  • Human rights work

Human rights law is a set of legal principles and standards that aim to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals, regardless of their nationality, race, gender, religion, or any other status. Human rights law includes international treaties, national laws, and court decisions, and it covers a wide range of issues, such as the right to life, liberty, and security; freedom of expression, religion, and association; and the right to education, health, and work. Human rights law plays a crucial role in promoting social justice, equality, and dignity for all people.

  • Municipal and planning law

Municipal and Planning law pertains to the legal framework governing local government and land-use planning. It encompasses a variety of regulations, policies, and procedures that dictate how cities, towns, and other local government entities operate and plan for their communities.

Municipal law governs the functions and powers of local governments, such as zoning and land use regulation, taxation, code enforcement, and public services. Planning law, on the other hand, deals with the process of developing and implementing plans and policies for land use, development, and conservation. It addresses issues such as community development, housing, transportation, environmental protection, and resource management.

The purpose of municipal and planning law is to promote the well-being and sustainability of local communities by balancing economic, social, and environmental interests. It is an essential component of effective governance and contributes to the development of vibrant and livable cities and towns.

  • Employment law

Employment law refers to the legal area that governs the relationship between employers and employees. It covers a wide range of issues related to the workplace, including hiring, termination, working conditions, wages, discrimination, harassment, and workplace safety. Employment law aims to protect the rights and interests of both employers and employees by providing a framework of legal rules and regulations that govern the employment relationship. It also ensures that employees are treated fairly and equitably, and that they are provided with a safe and healthy working environment. Employment law is a complex area of law that is constantly evolving, and it is important for both employers and employees to stay informed of their legal rights and obligations in the workplace.
