Going to court, either as a plaintiff or defendant, can be a stressful and uncertain time. But there are circumstances when a court appearance is necessary or unavoidable. I’m here to help.
There are many reasons people may bring legal action against another person, business, or organization. It could be:
- Wrongful termination
- Injury on the job
- Harassment or bullying
- Damages for lost wages
- Personal injury claims
- Worker’s compensation claims
- Breach of contract: either between two businesses or between a consumer and a business
- Family and personal disputes:
- Restraining orders
- Motor vehicle incidents: operating under the influence or driving under the influence (OUI/DUI)
How I Can Help You
If you are seeking damages against another individual, or some sort of resolution to a conflict, having an attorney look after your interests is sound advice. The same holds true if you find yourself to be a defendant in a civil or criminal proceeding. In each case, you should have someone on your side who understands the particulars of your situation and how to navigate through the legal system.
Often there are delays, continuances, and other unexpected hurdles between the beginning and conclusion of a legal matter. Your attorney can guide you through and assist you with determining the best path forward. Is it better to have a judge decide the matter? In what cases are juries preferable? What is involved in jury selection? Should you testify on your own behalf?
For three decades, I have assisted clients on both sides of the legal arena, as plaintiffs and as defendants. My strength lies in my knowledge of the law, my ability to analyze a case and provide sound, solid suggestions for the best to resolve it, and my ability to guide the case through the judicial system in as smooth and efficient manner as possible.
