Whether you are involved in a business partnership, limited partnership, corporation, or limited liability company to operate the business, a business divorce occurs when there is serious disagreement between owners about the way to run the business.

Contract Dispute Resolution Read More

Contract disputes require a proactive response to assist all contracting parties involved to reach a timely resolution. Typically, when legal disputes arise in Florida, parties have the option of using consensual dispute resolution techniques, such as mediation, to resolve the issue. They are not necessarily giving up their chance to take the matter to trial, but they are first attempting a resolution that is less expensive, less time-consuming, and less adversarial than litigation.

Foreclosures & Lien Contests Read More

Issues related to debt and equity interests in real property in Florida can become extremely complex. When the owner of a property is delinquent in payments owed in relation to a property, collection efforts by mortgagees or other creditors may result. In some cases, this involves the lender foreclosing on the mortgage or another creditor filing a lien against the property to perfect and protect its right to payment. Once the lien has been recorded in the public records of the county in which the real property is located, Florida law provides an opportunity for the owner to dispute the claim by filing a Notice of Contest of Lien.
