The responsible party can be a private individual, a business, or even the state or an agent of the state. If you have suffered injuries due to the mistake of another, or their inability to act prudently, you may be reimbursed for your suffered injuries.

Landlord-Tenant Law: Who hasn’t had a disagreement with their landlord or tenant? We all have come across circumstances that have been resolved through simple negotiations and agreements.

Whether you are a real estate tenant or landlord, or a commercial tenant or landlord, we have the answers for you.
