Practice Areas

Criminal Law

Have you or a loved one been arrested and charged with a crime? If so, your reputation, livelihood and future are now at risk.  You may have lots of questions and feel intimidated and troubled by the fear of facing complex legal issues that can leave a permanent impact on your life.  To protect your rights, you need guidance from compassionate legal advocates who are dedicated to conducting a thorough investigation of the facts, protecting your interests, and preparing the most compelling defense on your behalf.  We understand the need to keep our clients informed during every phase of the legal process, and we work to help our clients avoid harsh penalties associated with a criminal conviction.  Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a more serious felony, or if you are ready to apply for expungement to remove an arrest or conviction from your record, we are here to assist you and help you put your life back together.  We guarantee competent, compassionate, and effective representation.  If you or a loved one need a criminal defense attorney, contact us to schedule a free consultation. We are committed to achieving a positive resolution while protecting your rights.

Family Law

Family legal issues are complex and laws in this area can be very difficult to understand.  We recognize that when faced with divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and dividing community property, emotional and financial stress, anxiety and fear weigh in as heavy burdens on a family.  With a skilled and compassionate lawyer on your side, you will be protected.  We are committed to helping you understand the law during the time your family may be in transition.  If you or your children have experienced family violence, we offer specialized services to ensure your family is protected.  While our number one priority is amicable resolution of a case, we pride ourselves on developing a legal plan of action to accomplish your goals, and providing strategic representation tailored to your specific circumstances. The divorce process can be long and time-intensive, but we keep you informed each step of the way so that you will know what to expect, and how to be best-prepared for outcomes.  We are your trusted voice throughout this intricate process.

Estate Planning & Successions

Everyone has an "estate," and planning isn't just for retired people or for the wealthy.  No one can predict how long they will live, and unfortunately accidents and illnesses happen to people of all ages. Estate planning is providing instructions for carrying out your wishes both while you are living, and upon your death.  The process includes planning in advance for your loved ones, your real estate, bank accounts, vehicles, life insurance, retirement accounts, and personal possessions, and gives you the opportunity to control how your assets are distributed upon your death to the people or organizations you care about most.  Good estate planning will include instructions for passing on your valuable assets, directions for your care should you become disabled or incapacitated before you die, appointing a guardian for minor children, designating the transfer of your business, minimizing taxes, administrative costs and legal fees, and providing for loved ones who may need future protection.  Too many people don't plan.  When you don't have a plan, the state has a plan for you, whether you agree with it or not.  Our legal team can assist you with developing an estate plan that will protect you, your loved ones, and your assets. When you or a loved one dies, we are prepared to open and close the succession, which is the term used for the legal process to transfer or distribute property from an estate to the heirs of a decedent, and to clear title to immovable property.  

Business Law

Are you thinking about starting a business? The first step is business formation, and selecting the correct legal entity for the business. Once the legal entity is determined, documents must be drafted and filed in order for the business to be recognized by the government and to formally exist. Entities that new businesses can choose from vary by state. We can help business organizers consider the pros and cons of each business entity during the start-up phase, and can educate business founders about choosing an entity that will serve their best interests. After a business is launched, there might be a need for drafting, negotiation and review of contracts, employment agreements, commercial leases, handling licensing and zoning issues, open account collections for unpaid invoices, or navigating a business dispute. You might also need to protect proprietary business information, a brand name, or logo. At Pedrami Law Firm, LLC, we understand that every business is unique, which is why we specialize in providing customized legal solutions for your specific business needs.  Whether your company needs help developing a business plan, creating a policy, negotiating a contract, drafting an employee manual, or litigating a business dispute, we are here to provide proactive and strategic advise to support your business at every stage of its growth.

Personal Injury

Have you been injured in an automobile accident, or another type of accident due to someone else's fault? Many accidents are unavoidable, but you may be entitled to compensation. Each accident case is different, and we are committed to protecting your interests. An automobile accident can be a traumatic event for anyone! You might be injured and also without transportation. Being without transportation could affect your livelihood, and an injury could impact your ability to go to work. We understand that you may need to seek immediate medical attention, and that you need to be able to continue to pay your bills. A serious injury could involve pain and suffering, loss of time from work, and/or loss of employment, and may also have a detrimental impact on your loved ones, spouse, and/or children. Accident cases can be very complex, and insurance companies work very hard to save money by minimizing amounts paid out to injury victims! Let us advocate for you to get you treatment and compensation for your injury. 

Civil Litigation

Civil litigation includes many different types of non-criminal lawsuits where a "plaintiff" files a claim against a "defendant" in court. Our highly-skilled legal team offers advocacy and expertise in matters related to torts, construction law, life insurance, contracts, collections, civil rights, real estate, property disputes, and more. We are committed to the highest level of professionalism as we review your case, evidence, identify witnesses and experts, and develop a legal plan of action in preparation for trial. We are devoted to ensuring that our clients understand their rights under the law, and to exploring options for amicable resolution including mediation and settlement. In some cases, civil disputes are best resolved outside of the traditional courtroom setting, and it may be advisable to use other methods of alternative dispute resolution. We conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your case and take time to understand your objectives -- whether you have suffered damages or if you have been sued.

We are ready to help you.
