Areas of Practice
Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. The term is most commonly used to refer to a type of tort lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff's injury has been caused by the negligence of another. Damages range from pain and suffering, to loss of income, to diminished quality of life. If you have been injured as a result of another's negligence, we can help get you the most compensation under the law.
Over 70% of Americans do not have a will or trust in place. This indicates that a majority of Americans do not plan ahead for the sake of their family, but instead leave it to the State to figure out what to do with their assets. Unfortunately, if you die without a will or trust in place, a lot of your assets will be used to pay off probate court costs, with the remainder potentially going to the State. Chatila Law makes it easy for you predetermine and ensure where certain assets of your estate will go.
Business consulting & Defense
Whether an employee is suing your business for labor law violations, or you simply want to ensure your business is in compliance with the many legal requirements surrounding it, Chatila Law, LLP can help shield your business from liability. Another way we can help secure your interests is by preparing your contracts and other agreements in such a way that your business will have legal recourse (and defense) against an adverse party in the future.
Immigration is one of those areas of law that is more technical than anything else, and can lead to drastic outcomes if not done correctly. For example, filing out an application for employment authorization incorrectly can lead to months of you being ineligible to work. Another example we see is when someone pleads guilty to a low level crime, then later finds out that that crime is designated as an "aggravated felony" for immigration purposes, making the person ineligible to receive immigration benefits. Chatila Law can help you navigate this process on both the immigration and criminal side (see next).
ALL CIVIL MATTERS
If you have been served with a complaint or summons to appear in court, make sure that you have someone who can navigate the intricate rules of civil procedure so that you do not get a default (automatic) judgement against you. In many civil cases, the parties are able to reach a fair agreement outside of court. In either case, competent representation can be the difference of thousands of dollars and lots of time. Chatila Law, LLP is here to stand with you through the entire process.
Whether you are being harassed by creditors, believe you have been unfairly taken advantage of by a company, or were harmed as a result of lack of disclosure, Chatila law can represent you to stop those calls, ensure you are treated fairly, and in many cases, get you compensation for the trouble that a greedy company has caused you.
