The firm does lawsuits between individuals and businesses.  We work on civil cases, not criminal defense.  Most of our cases are over contracts or torts. Torts are obligations that  exist because of a public policy.  Most people are familiar with torts such as fraud, or negligence, but California recognizes many more that just those. The types of litigation we work in are Bankruptcy, Consumer Law, Contract Law, Probate Law and Elder Abuse.
