In my career I’ve developed skills to present strong cases, provide pragmatic advice, and find common ground to both win at trial and settle disputes before they get there. I only take cases that I know can be won, and will never waste clients’ time or money pursuing a pipe dream.
When partners decide to call it quits, there are frequently questions about who owes what to whom. Whether the partners remain friendly or can’t even be in the same room as one another, good lawyers help sort out the ownership picture without creating (more) bad blood. Sometimes it’s necessary to file a lawsuit to get what’s yours. Hire me to put this matter to rest and get the cash that is your right.
Fraud and Misrepresentation
It’s not only in business to consumer relations where fraud occurs. There is a small subset of people who are willing to lie, cheat, and steal their way to success, and they’re often more successful than the average person (you know, because they’ll lie, cheat, and steal). Hire me if you find out you’ve been ripped off by one of these people.
Breach of Contract
Both parties went through the trouble of making an agreement, and now one party can’t honor their end of the bargain. Maybe it’s not personal, maybe it is. Either way, without an attorney you’ll have no luck enforcing that agreement. A good attorney will work to structure a deal that gets you what you need without having to spend money on filing a lawsuit. Hire me to figure out how to deal with this breach of contract and whether litigation, or the perfectly-worded letter, is your best move.
The law is a frequently a complicated minefield of rights and responsibilities. Often, attorneys make mistakes that have profound impacts on their clients’ rights. Frequently this is because they are over-scheduled and miss a deadline. Other times it’s because they fail to make an argument, fail to see a limitation, or just make an unconscionable series of mistakes. If you believe your attorney made a mistake that cost you money, hire me to evaluate your case and make it right.
I also defend people and businesses when they’re being sued on business matters, like breach of contract and misrepresentation. These cases often have counterclaims, and you want an attorney who can both defend and prosecute claims. I will defend you vigorously, pursue any available counterclaims, and give frank, realistic advice. If we can put a lawsuit to rest with a reasonable settlement payment, I will recommend that every time instead prioritizing my ability to bill my clients.
