Frequently Asked Questions

How can outside counsel work alongside banks and other financial institutions to minimize risk?

There are many complex legal and regulatory requirements for commercial and consumer financial transactions, Whether in the process of lending, collecting, or managing depository relationships and accounts, banks are subject to a myriad of federal and state statutory consumer protection statutes including the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Electronic Funds Transfer Act (EFTA), the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), and others. Banks in violation of these statutes, and others, can find themselves in high stakes legal disputes.

Now more than ever, it is crucial for financial institutions to understand their obligations in consumer and commercial matters and have the right legal guidance to avoid or address lender liability claims or compliance issues.

What does a business lawyer do?

Business and commercial law covers all legal aspects of business operations, transactions, contracts, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, and more. While business owners have many legal concerns, they likely do not have the time or capacity to sufficiently address them.

Our skilled business lawyers help ensure that businesses of all types and sizes comply with regulations and operate smoothly – from initial formation to dissolution. Whether you are starting a business, buying or selling a business, or have an established operation, the right legal assistance is a wise investment to avoid costly issues down the road.

How does real estate law impact property transactions?

Real estate law sets many rules and guidelines for property ownership, transactions, development, leasing, short-term rentals, land use, and more. The law ensures that transactions are legally sound, property rights are protected, and land use adheres to zoning regulations.

Whether you are buying, selling, leasing, developing, or anything else regarding real estate, you should always have legal representation you trust to be up-to-date on the current legal and regulatory environment. There is too much on the line not to protect your investment and ensure all parties comply with the law and terms of your agreement.

What is estate administration?

Estate administration involves managing and distributing an individual's assets after death according to their will and the probate process. This process ensures that the deceased's wishes are respected, and assets are properly transferred.

However, even with a will, trust, and other estate planning documents in place, estate administration is a complex process. The estate administrator has many tasks, and disputes can arise regarding the will or fiduciary duties. Never hesitate to seek legal guidance with the estate administration process.

If someone passes away without a will, a skilled estate attorney can help navigate the probate process and state intestacy laws, which govern how a person’s assets and liabilities are handled in the absence of a will.

What are common construction law disputes?

Common construction law disputes handled by our firm often revolve around issues like breach of contract, payment disputes between owners, general contractors and/or subcontractors, construction defects, delays, scope changes, change orders, mechanic’s liens, and safety violations. These disputes can lead to legal battles over liability, financial compensation, project completion, and property rights, highlighting the importance of clear contracts, communication, and legal guidance to navigate the complexities of construction projects.

How does appellate law differ from other legal areas?

Appellate law involves handling appeals in higher courts after a trial court has already made an initial decision. Many other areas of law focus on seeking initial trial court decisions or implementing safeguards to avoid disputes to begin with.

Appellate work focuses on reviewing, challenging or defending trial court decisions based on legal errors made by the trial judge or jury. Our appellate lawyers present arguments to higher courts with a deep understanding of legal precedent and how it impacts each appeal.
