PROPERTY DISPUTES

Are you a TENANT? Has your landlord wrongfully threatened an eviction? Has your landlord refused to fix your air conditioner? Does your landlord repeatedly call and stop by to the point you feel harassed? Is your landlord trying to steal your security deposit? STOP getting pushed around. Know your rights, call Sam Cross today to learn your rights!

Are you a LANDLORD? Wondering whether you really need an attorney? The answer is yes. I have sued many well educated landlords on behalf of tenants who learn the hard way “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” (~Benjamin Franklin). It is much more profitable to have a relationship with an experienced landlord/tenant attorney so that you have peace of mind and, when the time comes to litigate, it is less expensive and effective.

Are you having a property dispute with a NEIGHBOR? Sometimes, a neighbor simply needs a letter from an attorney to do the right thing. Other times, they need to be brought to court. If you are having a property dispute with a neighbor, contact our office today to discuss your rights and your options.

CIVIL LITIGATION

Contracts. The legally binding power of a contract can either work for you or against you. Sure, you can attempt to write your own or print one off online, but I can’t promise it won’t come back to haunt you later. The first thing an attorney will ask you for when you come in over a contractual dispute is to view the contract. It is that critical. Contracts can quickly be reviewed, drafted and presented. As a result, you will have properly insulated against excessive or unnecessary litigation, damages, court costs and attorney fees. Call our office today to discuss creating a new contract, reviewing an existing contract, or litigating your rights under a contested contract.

Business Organization. Looking to start a business? Or maybe you want to reevaluate your current business structure. Our office can discuss your options and walk you through the business organization process.

Real Estate. Commercial leases can be highly complex and can drastically dictate your potential risks and responsibilities during the rental term. As a landlord or tenant, you need to have a legal professional walk you through the commercial lease process. Contact our office immediately before signing any commercial lease.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE & ORDERS OF PROTECTION

If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, it is critical you speak with a lawyer immediately. Whether its a DUI, Domestic Assault, Drug Charges or other misdemeanor and felony criminal charges; you need an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN DETAINED OR ARRESTED:

  1. Be respectful and aware of the officer’s safety.
  2. Ask if you are being detained or free to go. If free to go, then leave.
  3. If detained, inform the officer you do not consent to searches.
  4. Inform the officer you want a lawyer and remain silent.
  5. The place to argue your case is in a courtroom, not outside of one.

Anything you say will be used against you. There may be many defenses to your case, but you consenting to a search or making an admission reduces your defenses to any unlawful arrest.

AN ORDER OF PROTECTION CAN LEAD TO AN ‘A MISDEMEANOR’ (1 YEAR IN JAIL). Whether you need one or need to defend against one, call our office immediately to setup an appointment.
