Buying or selling property is an exciting thing, but it can also be complicated. Our firm can guide you through the process to ensure that you avoid the pitfalls and end up where you expect to be.
Foreclosures are never pleasant for any of the parties involved. In the event of wrongful foreclosures that may have arisen due to misleading loans, mortgage fraud, unfair or deceptive lending, raised interest rates, missed notifications, or other issues, we can help resolve the issue. In addition, we work with homeowners when foreclosure is imminent to negotiate with the lender for mortgage workouts.
LANDLORD / TENANT ISSUES
Whether it's transactional issues, such as drafting or reviewing residential or commercial lease agreements, or disputes between the parties involving breach of lease agreements, evictions, wrongful evictions, etc., our firm can help get everyone on the right track.

Although they are called "accidents," automobile crashes are most often caused by someone else's wrongful action or inaction. This occurs when there is simple negligence, where someone was supposed to do something and doesn't, or willful misconduct, where someone intends to act in a reckless manner and causes damage. Regardless of the type, if someone causes you harm and they didn't do what they were supposed to do, you may be entitled to recover for the damages incurred.
The only thing worse than having to go to the doctor is having a doctor that causes you harm. Our firm helps sort through the facts to determine what really happened and make sure that you get the treatment, care, and compensation you need in order to deal with these unnecessary injuries.
WRONGFUL DEATH & CATASTROPHIC INJURY
Sometimes the circumstances surrounding another party's bad acts cause catastrophic injury or even death. Catastrophic injury is an injury that permanently prevents an individual from performing any gainful work. The types of injuries can vary greatly, as can the severity of it. When the injury is so great that loss of life occurs and it's as a result of another's negligent or deliberate behavior, it can be considered "wrongful death." The types of causes range from a negligent surgeon to a drunk driver. While no amount compensation can replace a loved one, wrongful death laws are crafted in order to help a victim's family gain financial stability following a catastrophe.
Property owners have a duty to make sure that their property is free from hazards. This applies whether it is a public area, such as a store, shopping mall, or park, or a private area, such as a personal residence or an office building. Unfortunately, not all property owners take the necessary precautions to make their property reasonably safe. If a property owner breaches this duty and you were injured as a result, you may be able to recover damages in order to be made whole again.
We all like to feel like we are in good hands when it comes to our insurance company and that we will be taken care of in case something happens. Unfortunately, insurance companies don't always do what they are supposed to and can leave you left standing alone in your time of need.
Whether it is personal or commercial, auto or health, general liability or property insurance, our firm is efficient and effective at getting insurance companies to hold to their end of the bargain. We aggressively fight for our clients to make them whole again.
Wills, Trusts, Estates & Probate
Death, like taxes, is unavoidable. Despite this, it's better for all parties involved if it is planned for properly. Accordingly, our firm can guide you through the planning process and ensure that the proper instruments are in place to avoid unnecessary federal estate taxes, confusion and drama by loved ones after death, and potential guardianship issues for your children. In the event that such issues were not avoided, we can help deal with the issues and ensure that you are on track to resolution.
WILLS & TRUSTS
From complex wills and trusts to the most basic of estate planning needs, our firm can provide the individual attention and service you need to get the results you desire. Our firm is experienced in preparing all the documents necessary to ensure that your wishes are carried out and your loved ones have little to worry about.
LIVING WILLS, HEALTH DIRECTIVES, & POWER OF ATTORNEY
As prominent news stories and television drama have illustrated, the lack of living wills and health directives can cause problems for family members that don't know your true intentions when it comes to certain medical situations. The most famous example of the expenses, conflict, and heartache that can occur is the case of Terri Schiavo. Despite the Georgia legislature's attempt at making it easier to enact advance directives for health care, it can be somewhat complicated. Our firm can help explain the nuances and help get you a set of provisions that avoids these issues for loved ones and ensures your wishes are carried out.
Depending on the level of estate planning prior to death, probate proceedings can be very complicated and cause a great deal of angst. While current legislation may have been designed to provide benefits to loved ones after death, amendments since the writing of the will can change the outcome of what was intended and require professional legal expertise to sort it all out. We handle all types of probate proceedings, including will contests and estate disputes, as well as estate administration.
