   While small business owners act in a number of capacities, the successful entrepreneur knows when to ask for help. This is especially true of legal matters, which can sink a business if handled poorly or ignored altogether. Certain things can

sometimes be done without a lawyer, such as creating a legal partnership agreement, submitting necessary tax forms and drafting contracts with partners; but some issues are too time-consuming, too complex, or too high-stakes to handle without the care and expertise of a business lawyer.

   These include defending against wrongful termination claims by former employees, making a "special allocation" of profits and losses, or negotiating for the acquisition of another company's assets. Your legal needs will be unique to your business, our office can help your business navigate the complexities of business ownership.


   While seeking counsel for complex legal issues is smart, retaining an attorney to help prevent legal problems from occurring in the first place may be even smarter.


   All businesses inherently deal with contracts; even if they are unwritten, as with many transactions involving goods or services. Since a contract is a legally binding agreement, and even an honest contractual mistake can cause serious problems, it is crucial that business owners have at least a basic understanding of contract law. Our office handles all areas of contract law and how it relates to the many facets of running a business. We can advise you when a verbal agreement carries the weight of a contract, the meaning of "breach of contract," which contracts must be in writing, and related legal matters.

Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. A personal injury case can become formalized through civil court proceedings that seek to find others legally at fault through a court judgment or, as is much more common, such disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed.


Any potential personal injury case requires a detailed understanding of the facts, processes, and the law. If an accident has impacted your life, you will want to consult with an experienced attorney and decide if a lawsuit is an action you should pursue. If you're unsure if you have a case, please contact our office for a free evaluation of your matter.

If you require assistance in an area which is not listed above, please feel free to call our office and we will refer you to an associate of Cathy A. Marino who can provide the expertise you require if she is unable to do so.
