The specifics of medical malpractice vary by state and country, but it is generally when a healthcare provider goes against the commonly accepted practices within the medical profession, either intentionally or unintentionally, and causes injury or death to their patient. Only in cases where injuries or death are the direct result of the negligent action is there a valid argument for malpractice. When this is the case, the patient (or in the case of death, the administrator of the deceased’s estate) is entitled to compensatory and/or punitive damages.
If you feel that your or a loved one’s medical care has directly caused your condition to worsen please call us today.
For Victims of Domestic Violence
If you have been subjected to domestic violence there are many legal actions you can take depending on your situation. If you are fearful that your spouse or partner may abuse you again, you can seek a restraining order. This will legally mandate that they will not be able to come within a certain distance of you. You also have the option of pressing charges against your abuser. In a criminal case they can be sentenced to a prison term, parole, anger management, and/or community service. In a civil case you may be entitle to damages for any medical bills or pain and suffering caused by the abuse. If you have children within the relationship you may need to seek advice about custody as well.

About 50% of all marriages in the United States end in divorce. It is unfortunate, but it is the truth. It is something that no one wants to go through, but we are able to walk you through the process and make it more bearable. Divorce cases can be as simple as a few signatures, or can be long drawn out legal battles. There are many variables that can affect the case including:
- Whether the couple has children
- How long the couple has been together
- How many shared assets the couple has
- How the marriage ended
- ...and more
If you and your spouse have decided to get a divorce give us a call. We can give you legal advice and also lead any negotiations that may be a part of the divorce.
Divorce is difficult for the couple going through it, but it is often even more difficult for any children that may be involved. Joint custody is encouraged in most divorces so that the children can maintain a relationship with each of their parents. Parents may seek sole custody if they feel that their ex-spouse is unfit to be a parent or if their living situation is unfit for children. There can also be some issues if one parent is moving an extended distance from the other. Whatever the case may be we can be of assistance in any legal proceedings associated with child custody cases.
Pre-nuptial agreements are made before a marriage to address what will happen if the marriage were to end. These are usually agreed to if one or both of the people entering into the marriage is wealthy or has a lot of assets. Different stipulations can be agreed to based on if the couple has children, how long the marriage lasts, the reason for the end of the marriage, and so on. We can help you draw up a pre-nuptial agreement to protect your assets and assure that all parties are taken care of in a fair manner in
