Tennessee Attorneys Experienced in Diverse Civil and Criminal Matters

Most people will need to resolve a legal matter at some point, whether it involves their freedom, their family, or their finances. While managing a legal issue on your own may be tempting, proceeding without the help of an attorney can lead to adverse consequences that have a lasting impact on your rights. If you are faced with a legal concern, it is vital to retain an experienced attorney to guard your interests. The Savannah litigation lawyers at Hagenbrok & Hagenbrok PLLC are mindful that many people have limited financial means. We offer free initial meetings to potential clients, at which we can assess their circumstances and advise them of the various options for handling their case. Furthermore, we only charge fees for representation in personal injury cases if we recoup damages for our clients, and the fees that we assess in family law and criminal matters are reasonable. Our attorneys practice law in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

Real Estate

If you are in the process of buying or selling real estate, it is in your best interest to retain a skilled attorney to assist you in protecting your rights. For example, an experienced attorney can review the terms of any real estate contract to ascertain whether the terms are fair and ensure that all of the necessary terms are included. Additionally, an attorney can assist you in making sure that the title to any property that you wish to purchase is valid, which can prevent third-party claims of ownership of the property in the future. At Hagenbrok & Hagenbrok, we handle real estate closings in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

Business and Corporate Law

Creating and running a business is complicated, and decisions made early in the process can affect the income and liability of a business and its owners throughout the duration of its existence. If you are weighing whether to form a corporation, you should meet with a trusted business attorney to discuss the implications of each corporate entity. Furthermore, an attorney can assist you in determining whether you should draft a non-compete or buy-sell agreement to protect your business and its assets, and they can advise you on the benefits and detriments of any other significant business or corporate decisions.

Civil Litigation

A variety of lawsuits fall under the umbrella of civil litigation, which is the term used to describe an action in which a plaintiff seeks compensation for harm allegedly caused by a defendant. Common civil claims include breach of contract lawsuits and negligence actions. The requirements with which a plaintiff must comply to seek damages in a civil lawsuit depend on the claims alleged and the jurisdiction in which the lawsuit is filed. For example, each state sets forth its own statute of limitations for when negligence or breach of contract claims must be filed. If you wish to pursue a claim, you should consult a litigation attorney in the Savannah area as soon as possible to avoid waiving your right to recover damages.

Criminal Defense

If you are charged with a crime, the State must show that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt to obtain a conviction. It must prove each element of the crime with which you are charged. Additionally, even if you committed the acts out of which your criminal charges arose, you may be able to prevent a conviction by asserting that your acts were legally justified by an affirmative defense or that the evidence that the State intends to use against you was obtained by improper methods. If you face criminal charges, our aggressive criminal defense attorneys can fight to protect your rights.

Personal Injury

Serious injuries can arise out of accidents that are caused by a person’s negligent or reckless acts. In Tennessee, Arkansas, or Mississippi, to prove that a person or entity should be held liable under a theory of negligence, you must show that the person or entity owed you a duty of care and acted in a manner that breached the duty. You must also prove that the breach caused an accident, which caused you to suffer harm. If you sustained injuries because of someone else’s lack of care, our Savannah litigation attorneys can discuss your potential claims.

Estate Planning

It is crucial for anyone who owns assets or property to plan for how their estate will be disbursed when they die. Estate planning instruments, such as wills and trusts, not only allow a person to dictate how their estate will be disbursed but also can prevent undue discord between heirs and beneficiaries and may enable them to avoid tax penalties. Thus, if you have not planned for how your estate should be handled in the event of your death, you should meet with an adept estate planning attorney to develop a plan that meets your needs.

Construction Law

The process of developing and completing a construction project is intricate and usually involves numerous parties and contractors and several contracts. Contractual disputes are a common issue in construction projects, due to disagreements over each party’s rights and obligations and the meanings of contractual terms. To successfully recover compensation in a breach of contract claim, the party harmed by an alleged breach must show that a valid contract exists and that the terms of the contract were breached, resulting in actual damages. If you need assistance with a breach of contract claim or any other issue arising out of a construction project, you should retain our attorneys to assert your rights.

Family Law

A divorce or another family law proceeding can have a substantial impact on your future and the future of your children. Even after the proceeding is resolved, a spouse or parent may need to seek a modification of its terms. While some people try to handle family law issues on their own, there is no substitute for the guidance of an attorney who understands the nuances of the applicable laws and procedures. At Hagenbrok & Hagenbrok, we can help you fight for your rights during the division of property in a divorce or the allocation of child custody. We also can represent your interests in a dispute over child support or spousal support. Our attorneys understand the high stakes in these matters and handle them with sensitive attention.
