Homeowners and Condominium Association Disputes
Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) are a contract between the homeowner and the Homeowner’s Association (HOA). If either party is in breach of this contract, they may sue the other party if the dispute cannot be settled.
Probate and Trust Litigation
Trust litigation is an independent action involving a decedent's trust, and probate litigation is within the probate estate. Our legal team will review your case and offer court representation.

If you have a property dispute, breach of real estate contract or an encroachment, our experienced attorneys can help address these complicated issues.
Unfair Debt Collection
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, debt collectors are strictly prohibited from abusive, harassing practices in their attempts to collect outstanding debts. A Melbourne business lawyer can help you report and file a civil suit on your behalf if this act is violated.
Breach of Contract Disputes
A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill the provisions of an agreement or contract. These types of disputes can be settled outside of court or may require litigation.
Fraud is the intentional deception to deprive a victim of their legal rights or to secure something through unfair or unlawful gain. Victims of fraud have legal rights, and our team can help you assess the best course of action.

Restrictive Covenants and Non-Compete Violations
Companies can have restrictive covenants or non-competes that protect their business interests. If employees violate these conditions, they may be held liable in court for any damages that arise from their actions.
