Areas of Practice

Personal Injury

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.

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.

Estate Planning

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.
