Deckard Law Firm Practice Areas
When a lawyer is negligent in handling your matter, and that negligence causes you to suffer loss as a result, he or she is liable for malpractice. Although not every mistake made by a lawyer is malpractice, we are prepared to evaluate a lawyer’s performance and advise you of the appropriate steps to take to seek a remedy. We also handle attorney fee disputes, and we counsel clients regarding conflicts of interest and breach of fiduciary duty in connection with legal representation. Our firm’s extensive experience defending attorneys allows us to view each case from both the client’s and the attorney’s perspective, providing a uniquely thorough analytical view of each matter.
Estate and Trust Litigation
We have experience in all aspects of estate and trust litigation, including disputes about the distribution of estate and trust assets, validity of gifts, breach of trustee fiduciary duties, accounting, and actions for constructive trust. We recognize that this type of litigation has lasting consequences for the participants that go above and beyond the legal issues raised, and we are sensitive to the emotional components of these cases. We make a special effort to deal with all aspects of these disputes, and counsel our clients to resolve them in a way that is both fair and economical.
Skilled as trial lawyers and also in negotiating settlements, our attorneys provide representation in a wide array of civil litigation areas. We resolve disputes among partners, litigate fraud and misrepresentation cases, handle financial elder abuse cases, and represent both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of lawsuits involving breach of contract.
Businesses of all sizes face unique challenges, often involving legal complexity. Our attorneys’ experience allows us to provide our clients with tailored representation to suit their commercial needs. We effectively protect both plaintiffs and defendants in a broad range of commercial matters involving business and contract disputes, trade secret litigation, torts, officers and directors’ liability, as well as claims of fraud and/or misrepresentation.
