In our opinion, it is never too late to fight foreclosure.
Children Abuse and Sexual Abuse
We represent children and their families who are injured at school or other institutions which are supposed to care for these vulnerable youths. Instead, these school and other agencies will often psychically or sexually abuse these children. We also represent special needs children who are physically or sexually assaulted by other special needs children. We have a team of experts who will determine the institution’s failures as well as child psychologists and psychiatrists that help us assess the damage done to your child.
We advise businesses and business owners on matters related to business formation, preparing and filing all necessary documents to set up your enterprise. We will help you negotiate and execute contracts that protect your business, including vendor, customer, licensing and employment agreements. We also represent businesses and business owners as plaintiffs or defendants in litigation, such as cases involving breach of contract, unfair competition and ownership disputes.
