Criminal law is the area of law that gives one of two options. Either you are the victim of a crime or have been accused of committing a crime. These cases are serious and should only be dealt with the assistance of a lawyer.
If you have recently been in a car accident, the area of personal injury will likely pertain to you. If you believe your injury is the result of someone’s negligence, you can be compensated for that with the help of a lawyer. Every case is different so it’s important to work with someone you can trust and has your best interest.
Workers’ compensation is the area of law that protects employees who are injured on the job. Unfortunately, a lot of accidents happen in the workplace, so it’s vital to be prepared. As an employee, you have the legal right to receive proper treatment for accidents that happen on the job. This is not always easy, which is why we can help you!
Social Security is something that helps older Americans, workers who have become disabled, and families in which a spouse or parent dies. It is not intended to replace the sole income of people when they retire, but rather to help them. The purpose is to replace a percentage of a worker’s pre-retirement income based on your lifetime earnings. An attorney can help you apply for this.
Taxes are something that occurs each year, and often times people fall behind. If this happens, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. An attorney can help you sort out any and all tax matters.
Probate matters involve real estate and trust accounts. Wills and last testaments typically fall within this area of the law. An executor will be decided to carry out the wishes of a deceased person’s will, but it can get confusing. A lawyer can iron out the details and help make arrangements in case something happens.
Domestic cases range in variety but most of the time include family matters. This area of law is where you’ll find divorce cases, child support, child custody, but also adoption and other things as well. If you need help in any of those areas, a family lawyer would be a great option for you.
Employment law is the branch of law that covers all aspects of employees’ rights. For example, your employer cannot discriminate against you based on personal attributes that have nothing to do with your job performance. This includes age, skin color, gender, race, ethnicity, pregnancy, and disability.
