CIVIL MATTERS

 

PERSONAL INJURY

Automobile/motorcycle accidents, bicycle/pedestrian accidents, slip and fall cases

Personal injury encompasses any injury that occurred due to someone’s negligence. When this happens, you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, missed work (lost wages) and destroyed property to list a few. Injuries can also go well beyond the physical injury and can include both emotional and mental suffering that needs just as much medical attention as physical harm. All cases are on a contingency basis and you do not need to pay anything until your case is won and payment only comes from your settlement.

LANDLORD/TENANT LITIGATION

Landlord-tenant law addresses the rights and responsibilities of both parties. The law places limits on landlords' activities, such as the landlord's ability to make you move out without giving proper notice or ignoring certain issues.  On the other hand, we can help the landlords who have tenants breaking rules, such as moving out three months early or refusing to pay rent. Tenant eviction laws are very specific and should be properly addressed with the help of an attorney.
