BREACH OF CONTRACT ACTIONS AND COMMERCIAL LITIGATION

Contractual disputes often end up in Court.

Call our office for a free consultation on your contract controversy.

INSURANCE DEFENSE REPRESENTATION

 

A litigator for 39 years, Mr. Chester has represented insureds being sued in motor vehicle and product liability accidents. Ranging from simple whiplash to brain damage and wrongful death cases, he has gone to many verdicts in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. He also works to avoid litigation in global settlement conferences.

PRODUCTS LIABILITY ACTIONS

Serious injuries and major financial losses often occur due to product defects. Mr. Chester has represented Plaintiffs and Defendnts cases involving device and fixture safety. These cases are especially challenging, as they often involve multiple parties and difficult challenges. We welcome the challenge.

INSURANCE COVERAGE DISPUTES

Declaratory actions to determine if there is insurance coverage are an area of particular interest to Mr. Chester. Parties that are unsure about their insurance contract rights can contact Mr. Chester for a free consultation. Reading a complicated policy can be challenging enough...get legal representation if you have a dispute with merit.

LARGE PROPERTY LOSS CLAIMS

Losing everything can be devasting. Long after the loss, fighting for insurance coverage under homeowner's policies can extend the emotional trauma. We try to make things easier while representing your interests.

PUBLIC INTEREST / COMMUNITY ADVOCACY PROJECTS & LITIGATION

Sometimes you just have to stand up for what is right, and fight hard for it. That's what has been done by Mr. Chester time and time again. Community advocacy to enhance public saftey and housing rights is a core value of the practice.

ENVIRONMENTAL DISCLOSURE / SEA LEVEL RISE  CASES / CLIMATE CHANGE LITIGATION

 

As the era of rising seas and flooding starts encroaching on property interests, real estate purchasers have the right to be informed about what the seller knows about the property's history with regard to repeated tidal flooding, rising groundwater levels, whether the land is subject to an Adaptation Action Area classification and other important environmental factors. Improper environmental disclosures by property sellers and real estate professionals can result in liability. Proposed developments in increasingly flooded areas can impact your property rights and values. If you have been harmed by a failure to tell the truth in the purchase of real property, or are facing the consequences of a proposed development which will threaten your property interests, we are here to assist in the enforcement of your rights, including with civil causes of action, if necessary.  

SMALL BUSINESS, START-UP, MERCHANT AGREEMENT, FACTORING CONTRACTS AND ENTREPRENEURIAL COLLECTION DEFENSE
 

Things may be better on Wall Street, but clearly, the Great Recession is not over for many small businesses and innovative start-up enterprises who are being sued on lines of credit, guaranty agreements and other obligations. We understand that in many cases, the small business person is the unsung hero of the past several years...keeping others employed while funding their business. Let us help you as you help others.

FRAUDULENTLY CONCEALED PHYSICAL DEFECTS IN REAL PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Purchasing a residential or commercial property is serious business. Purchasers have the right to be informed about what the owner knows about non-disclosed and hard to identify physical defects. Fraudulent concealment in real estate transactions can cost you money and resources. Our office is here to work to make things right. 

COMPLEX DOCUMENT REVIEW SERVICE

Know what you are signing before you sign it. Have your line of credit, personal guaranty documents, promissory notes and other complicated contract papers reviewed and explained by a trial attorney. We provide alerts to let you know the effect of signing, and warn you about important rights you may be about to give away.
