Bankruptcy

Some people view Bankruptcy as a dirty word, a mark on your credit report that tarnishes your credit for 7 to 10 years. In reality, Bankruptcy is a federal right, intended to allow individuals to take control of their finances and either start fresh through Chapter 7 or reorganize their debt through a Chapter 13. Normally the fear resides where one is not familiar with the process. Here at 24/7 A Law Firm, we educate our clients so that they can make informed decisions about their Bankruptcy options.

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation is a broad topic that covers any legal issues that a business might run into, such as contract disputes, real estate problems, construction issues, business licensing, trade regulation, securities concerns, product liability, employment problems, environmental concerns, owner disputes, creditor and collections issues, and many more. The topic is too broad to cover fully here. Instead, we'll concentrate on a few important topics and urge you to consult an experienced commercial litigator to handle your business's legal needs. The goal underlying commercial litigation is, of course, to avoid litigation. Let's look, then, at areas where past experience tells us that litigation is likely to arise. In these situations, waiting to consult an attorney after the dispute arises is not sound practice; you're better off getting an attorney involved on the front end, to minimize potential pitfalls in the future.

Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a drug offense, it is important to speak with an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney early in your case.  Drug cases involve complex defenses that can surround many technical issues involving, constitutional protections, search seizure law and suppression of the evidence.  Your entire case can be won or lost depending on the motion to suppress drug evidence that is filed and argued in your case. Motions must be filed early in the case.

Foreclosure

A Foreclosure is a legal action initiated by an individual or entity holding the mortgage to your house. After a default on the loan, and pursuant to the Mortgage instrument, the individual or entity pursues a foreclosure action to reclaim the property that is serving as collateral securing your loan. In the State of Florida, a civil lawsuit is required to foreclose on a person's residential property. Once the foreclosure process has been concluded and a final judgment against the owner of the residential property has been granted by a civil court judge the individual or entity has the rights to the proceeds from the public sale of the residential property. If the residential property is not sold during the foreclosure sale, the individual or entity pursuing the foreclosure retains the ownership rights to the residential property and they are now the new owners of the residential property.

Short Sale

A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the sale proceeds fall short of the balance owed on the property's loan. It often occurs when a borrower cannot pay the mortgage loan on their property, but the lender decides that selling the property at a moderate loss is better than pressing the borrower. Both parties consent to the short sale process, because it allows them to avoid foreclosure, which involves hefty fees for the bank and poorer credit report outcomes for the borrowers. This agreement, however, does not necessarily release the borrower from the obligation to pay the remaining balance of the loan, known as the deficiency.
