We Are Experts In:


Criminal Law

Criminal law punishes individuals for crimes against society. It sets rules, punishments and procedures for offenses like murder, theft and fraud. Statutes and regulations outline crime elements and potential penalties, enforced by law enforcement agencies and courts. The law’s aim is to punish, deter, and protect society.


Civil Litigation

Civil litigation is the resolution of disputes between two or more parties through legal means. Claims may include breach of contract, personal injury, property disputes, or employment issues. One party files a complaint with the court describing the issue and desired outcome. The other party responds with a defense, and both present evidence in court. The court ultimately decides on a verdict, either awarding compensation or dismissing the case. This process can take months or years and requires knowledge of legal procedures and laws.


Divorce Decree

A divorce decree is a legal paper that finalizes a divorce, specifying the property division, child custody, alimony, and child support arrangements. It is legally binding and comes after negotiations or trials. Both parties must follow it, or face fines or jail time. Legal representation is crucial during divorce proceedings to get a fair outcome and protect your rights.


Equine Law

Equine law deals with legal issues related to horses, including breeding, training, showing, buying, selling, leasing, ownership disputes, veterinary malpractice, and liability for injuries. Equine lawyers have expertise in the equine industry and can advise and represent clients such as horse owners, breeders, trainers, and equestrian professionals. They also handle regulations and laws governing horse racing and other equestrian events.


Corporate law

Corporate law governs the formation, management, and dissolution of corporations – businesses that have opted to incorporate as separate legal entities. It deals with the legal rights and responsibilities of these entities and their people. Incorporation benefits from limited liability protection and sets out rules for corporate governance. Corporations have legal obligations to disclose information about finances and operations. Due to the complexity of corporate law, businesses typically seek legal counsel when incorporating or making major decisions.


Entity Formation

Entity formation creates a legal business structure like a corporation, LLC, or partnership. This includes filing documents, getting licenses/permits, and following regulations. The type of entity chosen affects legal, tax, and liability aspects. An attorney or accountant’s guidance helps to make the right decision. Overall, entity formation is an essential part of starting a business, setting a foundation, and guaranteeing legal compliance and success.


LQBT Issues

LGBT rights ensure fair treatment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals. These rights include non-discrimination, marriage equality, healthcare, workplace protection, and the right to form LGBT organizations. It is a vital part of the struggle for justice in society, based on the belief that everyone deserves respect and equality, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. While progress has been made, there is still much work to be done.


Juvenile Law

Juvenile law is about minors who commit crimes. Its aim is to rehabilitate rather than punish. The goal is to prevent future criminal activity by identifying and addressing underlying issues. Juvenile law is complex and differs between states. Proceedings are civil, not criminal. Consequences for young offenders can include custody, probation or rehabilitation. Juveniles have special rights to an attorney, privacy and confidentiality. The focus is on helping young offenders turn their lives around.


Estate Planning

Estate planning is the process of arranging assets before incapacitation or death. It creates a plan to transfer wealth, minimize taxes, and avoid family disputes using legal instruments, such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney. Its key components include identifying assets and heirs, addressing tax consequences, and establishing guardianship for minors and vulnerable adults. Proper estate planning provides peace of mind and control over assets, ensuring a smooth transition of wealth.


Antitrust & Competition

Antitrust laws prevent monopolies and unfair business practices to promote fair competition, protect consumers from high prices and low quality products, and encourage innovation in the market. They are enforced by government agencies like the FTC or DOJ, as well as private lawsuits. Examples of antitrust violations include price fixing and market allocation. Violators face strict punishments such as fines, breakups, and criminal charges.


Bankruptcy & Restructuring

Bankruptcy law is a legal framework to handle debt. People file a petition with a court that stops creditors’ collection activities and disclose their finances. The court may discharge some or all of the debt, reorganize obligations, or sell assets to repay creditors. Bankruptcy aims to give debtors a fresh start while protecting creditors and the economy. It has consequences like losing assets and harming credit scores, so legal and financial professionals should be consulted before considering it.


International Trade Litigation

Trade litigation resolves disputes between nations over things like tariffs and barriers. Negotiations to resolve the issue are attempted before litigation. The WTO handles these disputes with investigations and compliance proceedings. Trade litigation can impact economics and reduce trade opportunities. However, it can also ensure compliance with international trade laws and level the playing field for global commerce.


Class Action Litigation

Class action litigation is when a large group of people with similar claims against a defendant file a lawsuit together, represented by a lead plaintiff(s). It’s useful for fraud, liability, and discrimination cases, and allows individuals without resources to pursue compensation. Advantages are access to justice and efficiency, but drawbacks are high fees, lengthy processes, procedural compliance, and execution challenges.


Investment Fund Litigation

Investment fund litigation involves legal disputes when investors believe fund managers breached their responsibilities regarding the fund’s performance or holdings. Lawsuits can result in settlements or judgments but are complex and time-consuming due to legal concepts like fraud, negligence, misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duties, and breach of contract.


Transnational Litigation

Transnational litigation involves disputes across multiple countries, with companies or individuals facing legal action in more than one country. It can be complicated due to different legal systems and cultures. Key issues include jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of judgments, and language and cultural barriers. It requires expertise in international law and an understanding of cross-border legal disputes.


Insurance & Reinsurance Litigation

Insurance litigation is a legal process where disputes related to insurance coverage, claims handling, or bad faith claims cannot be resolved. Parties involved may need legal guidance from experienced attorneys to ensure their rights are protected in various contexts, including auto, homeowner’s, health, and commercial insurance. Conflicts may arise from denial of payment or disagreements about owed compensation and may require an understanding of insurance law, policy provisions, and industry standards.


Employment Litigation & Counseling

Employment litigation is a legal dispute between employer and employee over employment law issues such as discrimination, harassment, wage violations, wrongful termination, or breach of contract. This process can be demanding, and parties should have competent attorneys to represent them. Employers may lose financially and hurt their image, while employees may lose their income and well-being. To prevent litigation, employers must have clear policies and procedures, train employees, and promote a healthy workplace environment. Before taking any action, legal advice must be sought by both employers and employees.


Media & Entertainment Litigation

Media litigation is resolving media disputes through legal proceedings. It can involve many issues, such as defamation, privacy, and copyright infringement, and require specialized knowledge in media law. The outcome can have significant consequences and shape future media practices. In the digital age, media litigation has become more prevalent due to online platforms’ influence on public opinion.
