- "Hollywood accounting" can rob participants of income they earned. In the movie business, when projects with participation lose money, that may be a sign that the books have been manipulated to avoid paying participants. Our law firm uses experts to investigate the numbers and find hidden profits.
- Corporate scams usually involve cooked books. Accounting mistakes are the result of either negligence by the accountant or deliberate misstating of the facts. In either case, those who suffer financial harm can sue for professional negligence or CPA malpractice.
- When you need the insurance, the truth comes out. Insurance brokers are anxious to sell policies and get the premiums, but in some cases they simply don't do the work necessary to assure the policy covers what they said it would. For the policyholder, the security they thought they had paid for is not there when they need it most.
- Attorneys should exercise professional responsibility. When a lawyer fails to file legal documents in a timely fashion, the client can lose rights because of statutes of limitation. Legal malpractice can also occur when a lawyer does not advise a client of rights or fails to pursue a course of action agreed to by the client.
Our law firm also handles complex medical malpractice cases and birth injury cases that involve medical negligence. We work with experts to prove construction defects that are the result of engineer and/or architect professional negligence.
