A Skilled Miami Commercial and Real Estate Litigation Attorney

Litigating on behalf of you or your business
These days, it is not unusual to encounter a dispute with a business, client or contractor and need outside help to resolve it. I have been assisting individuals and businesses for more than 35 years through civil court lawsuits and trials in both state and federal courts and in alternative dispute resolution. I have the knowledge and experience to help you or your business in cases related to:
Breach of contract
Breach of warranty
Business torts
Construction law
Environmental law
Products liability
Professional liability
Toxic torts
Partnership and shareholder disputes

Recovery from breach of contract
When a party to a contract fails to perform, damages may be caused to another individual or business. This damage often goes beyond the immediate inconvenience of getting less than promised by the contract. The breach can also cost future profits if you are a business which is unable to serve its clients as a result, or other losses to individuals. I can help you achieve the best legal remedy for a breach of contract, such as:
Compensatory damages - reimbursement for immediate monetary loss
Consequential and incidental damages - compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach
Attorney fees and costs - reimbursement for such fees and costs when allowed by the contract or the law
Liquidated damages - amounts specified in the contract that are payable for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance

Specific performance - court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract
Punitive damages - penalty for a party's objectionable behavior, meant to punish the breaching party and discourage other parties from acting in a similar manner
Rescission - cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance and payments made under the contract returned
Reformation - change in the terms of the contract when the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed

Tackling your real estate disputes
When it comes to real estate, I know the art of the deal and the art of a deal gone wrong. When facing the stress of real estate litigation, retaining an attorney with substantial knowledge about Florida property laws and civil litigation can lighten the burden. By assertively applying my 35 years of experience and extensive knowledge of all aspects of property rights, civil procedure, finance and business, I handle disputes related to:
Real property contracts
Residential home sales
Commercial property sales
Contractors and subcontractors
Homeowners associations
Landlord-tenant issues
Boundaries and easements
Saving your home from wrongful foreclosure
You worked hard to purchase your dream home. When unexpected circumstances occur that put your home at risk of foreclosure, you can take crucial steps to ensure your lender complies with its legal duties. I combine innovative strategies with fierce determination to defend your right to keep your home. When selling your home presents the better option, I guide you toward the most advantageous situation. Means of protecting your home include use of:
Mortgage modification
Loan forbearance
Short sale
Deed in lieu of foreclosure

Resolving an eviction crisis
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families and businesses must locate a new home or location under traumatic circumstances. When possible, I help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, I protect your right to remain in your home or business location. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, I help you to protect your property and your business.
