If you are involved in a lawsuit, the financial future of your business or your family may be in jeopardy. Litigation requires both strong trial advocacy skills and a practical, common sense approach to resolving disputes. Attorney Scott J. Friedman has experience litigating a broad array of civil matters, including contract and business disputes; alleged violations of consumer protection law; professional malpractice; Americans with Disabilities Act claims; civil fraud; and personal injury lawsuits. If you are involved in a lawsuit, you need an experienced attorney who is prepared to aggressively represent your interests and provide practical solutions.
Litigation does not always end at trial. Both civil and criminal cases can be appealed. Appellate litigation is often a complex and time-consuming process, but it is sometimes necessary to either reverse a judgment against you, or protect a favorable judgment. Appeals require a careful review of the evidence and research into the legal arguments available. To be successful in an appeal, you need an attorney with the ability to carefully research complex legal issues and present arguments in a concise and persuasive manner.
The consequences of a criminal conviction can be severe and life-changing. You could face a jail or prison sentence; a costly fine; court-ordered restitution; probation; or suspension of your driver’s license. If you are accused of a crime, your reputation and freedom might be at stake. If you face prosecution in federal, state, or municipal court, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Attorney Scott J. Friedman is prepared to protect your rights and defend your interests.
If you were injured because of another person’s negligence, you have the right to fair compensation. The most important task is to get your life back to normal. Recovering from a serious injury should be your first priority. However, financial compensation is often essential to pay medical bills and provide financial support for you and your family. Your financial security, and the financial security of your family, may depend on the settlement or verdict your attorney is able to obtain for you.
