  • 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. As such, 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 Milton 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.

  • Why should I hire a real estate lawyer?

    Buying a home in Delaware involves a title search, which means researching public records to find out if any liens have been placed on the property that would make it nontransferable to a new buyer. This is a task for your Milton real estate lawyer or a title company. Also, you may have questions regarding legal matters that your agent cannot answer.

    In any real estate purchase or sale, an enormous amount of documentation is used that uses legal language a normal person often finds impossible to understand. As your attorney, I can guide you through this paperwork as well as research any unusual aspects of the property such as illegal units, boundary or easement issues, and more. I can write specific and detailed contracts if you have any type of unusual situation that needs to be handled. All of this is done to ensure that your interests are thoroughly protected throughout the process and settlement.

  • 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 who might otherwise fade into the sunset, hire accident experts, and get full reports from police and/or traffic 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, facts, and personalities involved. 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 a Milton auto accident 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.
