Let our skilled and knowledgeable Dade City & Zephyrhills attorneys help you in any of the following areas:
Personal Injury – If you have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, Florida law allows you to collect compensation for your losses, including present and future medical care, lost income, pain and suffering and other legal damages. Recovering this compensation, however, puts the burden on you as the plaintiff to prove every element of the accident, the other party’s fault, and the nature and extent of your injuries. Our lawyers prepare and present a persuasive case establishing the defendant’s negligence and justifying a reward of maximum compensation. Our personal injury law practice includes car, truck and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, and more.
Criminal Defense – It’s not just your liberty on the line in a criminal prosecution, but your reputation at home, at work and in the community, and your ability to obtain or maintain the education, employment or professional license of your choosing. The Mander Law Group fights aggressively to protect your rights and achieve the best outcome possible in your situation. Our criminal defense practice includes representation across the range of Florida misdemeanor, juvenile, and felony offenses–from possession of marijuana to firearms, sex offenses, and murder.
Family Law – A divorce, custody dispute or other family law matter is a trying time emotionally, and you may just want to put the matter behind you as soon as possible and move on with your life. However, the decisions that are made in Florida divorce and family law can continue to impact you and your children for years to come. At the Mander Law Group, we work to take the stress and conflict out of the equation, and ensure that decisions are made rationally and in your best interest. Our family law practice encompasses all relevant issues in Florida divorce, including parenting and timesharing, alimony, and the division of marital property.
Estate Planning – Comprehensive estate planning includes not only preparing for how to distribute your estate after you are gone, but also ensuring that you are properly cared for during your lifetime in the event of incapacity up to and including important end-of-life decisions. We take the time to listen to your needs and goals to draft complete wills and living wills that effectively memorialize and communicate your wishes. Our estate planning practice also includes assisting the personal representative and other parties through the often difficult and time-consuming task of probate and estate administration.
Real Estate – For individuals and businesses alike, real estate transactions are among the most important and expensive dealings they will have. With so much riding on a real estate purchase or sale, having knowledgeable and experienced advice and representation at every step is critical to achieving a smooth and successful transaction. Our Florida real estate attorneys handle residential and commercial transactions from negotiations to closing, and also represent property owners and other parties in the resolution of real estate disputes regarding title, boundaries, zoning, landlord-tenant matters and more.
Business Law – Choosing the right entity from which to operate your business has important consequences regarding taxation, liability, management and control, business succession, and other vital matters. Our business law practice provides advice and assistance from entity formation and start-up throughout the life of your business, including representation in the negotiation and drafting of purchase and sale transactions and other contracts, and the resolution of disputes including business torts, breach of contract, partnership disputes, corporate governance, and HOA matters.
