  • Appeals: An appeal is the request by an individual or business asking a higher court to review a legal decision made by a lower court. The basis for the review must be the incorrect application of the law in the case by the lower court. An appeal does not allow introduction of new evidence, new witnesses, or new arguments. You’re basing the appeal on the incorrect application of the law in a trial.
  • Asset Protection: The valued assets that you’ve acquired or inherited have to be protected from a lawsuit. Asset protection is the legal assurance and sheltering of your finances from a lawsuit. Whether your income is  important to protect your assets so that a lawsuit or a financial downturn won’t destroy your business or personal asset. Our firm can help you properly secure those assets to shield them from creditors.
  • Bankruptcy: Individuals and businesses facing considerable amounts of personal debt, business debt, limited income or lower revenue may be able to discharge debt by filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a Chapter 11 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The bankruptcy Chapter you will be able to file is determined by the Florida Means Test which is based on your income, your assets, your debts that you have.
  • Business and Civil Litigation: Lanigan & Lanigan work with plaintiffs and defendants on a variety of business and civil litigation issues.

  • Corporate Reorganization: Corporate reorganizations are considered by distressed businesses, or companies for reasons including taxes, leadership changes, company finances, mergers or the economy which affect a company’s bottom line.
  • Immigration: Multinational corporations and international businesses based in Florida that are owned by citizens from South America and Europe require immigration attorneys with experience in state business and foreign nationals with immigration issues. Whether a defense of deportation, obtaining a green card, preparation of documentation for employment visas, business ownership laws are complex.
  • Probate: Probate litigation is a complex field requiring thorough understanding and experience with Florida probate code and the ability to litigate in disputes over estates and wills.

Family emotions can strain the process that has to be handled by an attorney able to level the issues and clarify the law.
  • Mortgage Workouts: There are many options to managing home mortgage payments and financing. Home values, interest rates, principal balances may be adjusted in a mortgage workout which involves an attorney creating a financial alternative for the repayment of a mortgage. You may be able to refinance your home in a mortgage workout package that is presented to your lender for consideration and approval.
  • Real Estate Litigation: If you own residential and or commercial real estate, at some point you will need a real estate attorney to help complete successful transaction. It’s imperative that a real estate attorney review contracts to protect your financial and legal interests before, during and after contracts are signed.
