Areas of Practice
At Johanson Law Group, Inc., I provide assistance in a variety of situations.
As far as civil litigation is concerned, I represent individuals and business
entities in civil disputes. It is my aim to bring the case to completion
as soon as reasonably possible so that the client can get back on their
feet without much delay. Sometimes a situation can be resolved over the
course of just a few phone calls, but at other times the case is much
more serious and litigation is necessary for conflict resolution. Please
click on any of the following areas of law to learn more about the area
of practice my firm can help.
Administrative Law Hearings
An administrative law hearing is a dispute between a division of government
and a party that is affected by an action or decision made by that government
agency. It is the second stage in an appeal process and at this stage,
the claimant is most likely able to receive benefits. It is a crucial
part of the process.
Any situation involving a business versus an individual or another business
is business litigation. It is a situation that a business law or agreement
is broken and legal authority is called upon to step in. Often, this situation
involves a breach of contract. Many important business matters require
the support of a lawyer because they are complicated and the state of
a corporation could be on the line.
When forming a contract that needs to be negotiated a civil litigation
lawyer can be called upon to mediate between the parties and form a contract
that can be agreed upon. If a contract is broken by one of the parties
not fulfilling their end of the deal, a breach of contract is involved.
A contract is a vital part of any business situation because it serves
as a mutual agreement and protects each party's interests.
Commercial litigation is similar to business litigation in that it deals
with rights and responsibilities of a business engagement. It also includes
the regulation of corporate contracts, the manufacture of products, and
hiring practices. This involves all issues that may occur within a business,
even employment disputes and business dissolution.
When the unfortunate circumstances concerning an estate, such as a suspicious
will, a will that is hard to decipher, or another issue regarding the
administration of an estate come about, the help of a civil litigation
attorney could be helpful. Some reasons for estate litigation are second
marriages, illegitimate or disinherited children, or unnatural distributions.
Many landlord/tenant disputes could be resolved if each were adequately
aware of their rights and responsibilities, and each party met each demand
properly. This is not however always possible. It is often necessary for
a civil litigation lawyer to step in and take the situation into professional
legal hands. The laws are constantly changing in regards to these laws,
which is why it is important to be informed and take the necessary actions.
General partnerships involve anywhere from 2-20 people who come together
in a business bond and distribute the costs, debts, assets and duties
amongst the members. Limited partnerships involve at least one or more
general partners as well as at least one limited partner and they essentially
keep the business running financially by providing the capital. Failure
to keep up their end of the bargain can result in a breach of contract
and serious legal action is required.
Real Estate Litigation
There are many complex and confusing laws and regulations regarding real
estate issues. Your property is also protected under certain laws and
it is important to understand the rights and regulations that come with
owning property. I have experience representing real estate developers,
owners, landlords and clients in contract negotiations, loans, and lease matters.
