We provide legal services in the areas of business, estate and property law, Probate, Quiet Title, Wrongful death, and fatal accident cases. We also collect promissory notes and other debts. We provide representation in solving disputes, obtaining something that belongs to you, and in litigation either as a plaintiff or as a defendant. We also advise on legal matters, solve problems, and draft documents such as contracts, powers of attorney, trusts, and wills.
We also advise and counsel clients on real estate matters, including adverse possession, easements, and quiet title (obtaining a judicial declaration about ownership of land interests). Prompt action in real estate disputes may lead to a successful result, while delay could lead to bad results. Sometimes it is advisable to tender (deliver) a quitclaim (not “quick” claim) deed. Contact us to obtain assistance with a real estate problem, including quiet title, in Northern Arizona.
A good, thorough investigation is often the key to winning a case, and many lawyers do not investigate thoroughly enough. Cases are won on the facts, and the facts cannot be told unless you discover what they are. A good, early investigation will assist in preserving evidence so that it is available years down the road – when you need it. We investigate our cases. Whether for plaintiff or defendant, we bring substantial experience to the courtroom.Prescott AZ attorney
We represent spouses, children, and other family members of people who died as a result of the negligence or other wrongful conduct of another. These cases are usually called wrongful death cases by the lawyers and judges who deal with them. Wrongful death and fatal accident cases require special expertise, compassion, and skill. Prompt investigation and preservation of evidence are essential. For more information about wrongful death and fatal accident cases, click here. Prescott AZ attorney
In litigation, we have obtained million-dollar jury verdicts for plaintiff clients, including one of the largest tort jury verdicts ever awarded in Yavapai County. We have also successfully defended clients against exposure to claims for millions of dollars, saving our clients millions. After winning unanimous defense verdicts in a multi-million dollar lawsuit before a jury in Yavapai County, we prevailed on the same claims in a second lawsuit filed by the same plaintiffs over the same transaction, in Maricopa County.
