  • What does a business lawyer do?

    In general, a business lawyer handles the legal aspects of buying, operating, and selling a business. Such businesses can be held as a sole proprietor, a partnership, a limited liability company, or any other type of corporate entity. 

    Any business is required to follow local, state, and federal rules regarding their employees, transactions, taxation, contracts, and more. Business lawyers may be retained by companies on a regular basis to oversee their general workings and to act as consultants when problems or opportunities arise. 

    As a business attorney, I may do research, write or review contracts, settle disputes, engage in negotiations on behalf of clients, or prepare and take claims to court.

  • Should I consult a business lawyer when starting a new business?
    Yes, it is highly beneficial to work with a lawyer when forming a new business. An attorney can provide the legal advice you need on choosing a business structure that protects your best interests. A lawyer can also help you avoid common legal and financial pitfalls in business formation.
  • What does a real estate lawyer do?
    A real estate lawyer can help you review your real estate transaction. They can assist with real estate closings, leasing, and other aspects of property law. An experienced attorney can help you resolve title issues, negotiate real estate deals, and work with you in litigation.
  • What is a title search?
    A title search involves an in-depth investigation into public records regarding your property. This search is meant to uncover any existing liens or judgements on the real estate property that may complicate a closing. Title searches can also reveal information that can cause future ownership issues, such as land use issues or easements. 
  • I was injured in a car accident. What if the other party claims he was not at fault?

    Only a thorough and detailed investigation can determine fault in an auto accident. As your Milton personal injury attorney, I would immediately set to work conducting such an investigation. 

    The sooner you contact me, the better, so as to preserve evidence, contact witnesses, hire accident experts, and get full reports from authorities. 

    Once all of this information is gathered and assessed, fault can generally be determined.

  • Do auto accident cases ever go to trial?

    Every auto accident is different and has its own unique circumstances. Whether or not your case goes to trial will depend on how your case unfolds, how amenable the other party is to accepting responsibility, and other factors. Most personal injury cases settle outside of court. 

    As an attorney, it is my responsibility to act according to your goals and wishes as well as to advise you honestly what to expect from the process. Either way, through settlement or trial, I will do my utmost to help you pursue a fair and just result.
