- Personal Injury - Plaintiff: Personal Injury falls under Tort Law. Personal Injury involves civil law cases where you are trying to obtain compensation for an injury you sustained to your person. Personal injuries can be physical or psychological. Before you can collect an award, your personal injury lawyer will have to prove that the defendant is liable by establishing negligence.
- Probate & Estate Administration: When a person dies, his or her estate must go through probate. If the decedent leaves a will directing how his or her property should be distributed after death, the court must determine if it should be admitted to probate and given legal effect. If the decedent dies without leaving a will, the court appoints a Personal Representative to distribute the decedent's property according to the laws of Decent and Distribution. These laws direct the distribution of assets based on hereditary succession.
- Real Estate: Real estate transactions are governed by federal statutes, as well as state statutory and common law. Real Estate Law encompasses these statutes and laws, as well as property law matters. Real estate law includes a wide variety of legal issues relating to acquiring, financing, developing, managing, constructing, leasing and selling commercial and residential real property of all kinds.
- Workers' Compensation: Workers' compensation laws are designed to ensure payment by employers for some part of the cost of injuries, or in some cases of occupational diseases, received by employees in the course of their work.
- Estate Planning / Elder Law: Preparing estate plans, wills, trusts, powers of attorney (both financial and medical), living wills, transfer-on-death deeds, and related documents.
