Law Practice Areas

Class Actions

When the actions of a company or organization harm a large number of people, or when the rights of many people are violated in one single action or with one single product, many claims can be decided in a single case. This is known as a class action lawsuit. These lawsuits, when successful, allow all class members to receive compensation without having to file separate lawsuits. This mechanism, when properly applied, can be an efficient way to obtain justice for a large number of individuals.

Consumer Law

Too many consumers suffer loss as a result of deceptive or otherwise unlawful business practices. A large, well-financed opponent can often overpower an individual consumer, so many consumers give up and abandon their potential claims. In order to level the playing field, states have enacted consumer protection statutes that can offer consumers a reasonable mechanism to assert their rights. Under these statutes, the consumer may be entitled not only to recover damages, but also the costs of the proceedings including attorney’s fees. This can make the pursuit of claims more feasible.

Wills & Probate

Most adults die without a will. This can create confusion for the decedent’s survivors as they close the decedent’s affairs, navigate the probate process and distribute assets under a formula dictated by law, which might not be how the decedent would have wanted them distributed. At the very least, a set of four basic documents can provide substantial protection and security for the management of the client’s affairs when they are disabled, and after their death. In certain cases trusts may be advisable, either during one’s lifetime or after their death, or both.
