Fields of Law

We concentrate our law practice in the following areas:

Toxic Mold Litigation

We are pioneers of claims related to toxic mold exposure in the State of Nevada on behalf of those who have suffered personal injury and property damage as a result of water intrusion and mold contamination.  We have successfully represented hundreds of injured people related to their and their property's exposure to mold contamination in single family homes, office buildings, apartment homes, and condominiums.  We handle all of your mold related claims, including construction defects, property damage, personal injury, and homeowner's insurance claims.  We hold reckless home builders, property owners and managers, environmental professionals, remediation companies, and homeowner's insurance companies accountable for their actions and your injuries and damages.

Construction Defects

We represent homeowners regarding constructional defects in their homes.  Whether your home is a modest single family home or a multi-million dollar estate, our law firm successfully prosecutes bad builders and holds them accountable for the cost of repairs, costs of investigation, attorneys' fees, and other damages related to their poor construction practices.  We represent single homes, groups of homes, and entire neighborhoods in relation to their construction defect claims and do not rest until recovery is made from responsible builders, subcontractors, and their insurance companies.  Click HERE to find out more.

 

Water Damage

Water damage, whether the result of roof leaks, plumbing leaks, stucco defects, grading, or flooding, can affect your structure, your personal property, and even your health.  Water damage can lead to mold contamination and bacterial contamination in your home.  For many years, our law firm has been handling cases involving water damage, its causes, and its effects.  Our experience in water damage matters allows our law firm to handle all aspects of your loss, from documenting the cause and origin of the water to engaging in environmental sampling for resulting mold or bacteria contamination, from homeowner's insurance claims to construction defect claims against the negligent builder and its subcontractors.  Our storied experience in the complex arena of water damage litigation allows our law firm to effectively assemble your claim for recovery against those responsible for causing the loss and your resulting damages.

Real Estate Failure to Disclose

Our law firm routinely pursues sellers of real property and their real estate agents and brokers who fail to disclose known dangerous or defect conditions in the properties they sell to innocent buyers.  In addition, we take down so-called "house-flippers" who commit acts of cover up and non-disclosure in order to line their own pockets with your money.  Undisclosed and covered up defects can be danderous to your family and expensive to repair. Actions against these real estate defendants seek recovery of repair costs, diminshed value of the home, and statutory penalties from responsible sellers, agents, and brokers.  Click HERE to find out more.

 

Insurance Bad Faith

Our law firm has over a decade of experience compelling insurance companies to deal fairly and in good faith with their insureds.  This means aggressively pursuing greedy insurers and forcing them to pay to their insureds money owed under their insurance policies, including:

  • Homeowner's Insurance Policies
  • Renter's Insurance Policies
  • Condominium Owner's Insurance Policies
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Auto Insurance Policies

We understand and are experienced in dealing with insurance company shenanigans related to claimed exclusions and exceptions to coverage under the insurance policies.  We are routinely successful in forcing insurance companies to pay under the insurance policies:

  • Structural Damages
  • Personal Property Damages
  • Additional Living Expenses

Apartments/Renter's Rights

Landlord-Tenant Law is complicated.  Whether you are renting an apartment home, a condominium, or a house, you rely on the landlord and property manager to provide you and your family with a safe place to live and to properly make repairs to your home when something goes wrong.  But, one thing is generally common among landlords and property managers:  their arrogance and indifference toward you, the tenant.  From the landlord and property manager perspective, you are a rent check every month and the more money they put into maintenance and repairs, the less profit they make on your rent check.  Moreover, landlords and property managers are keenly aware of the fact that they have far greater resources to protect their rights and interests than you do to protect yours.  Landlords and property managers heavily rely on the fact that you are likely less legally sophisticated than they are and that you do not have the knowledge or financial power to enforce your rights against them.  And, they have teams of lawyers protecting them.  Shouldn't you? Representing yourself is ineffective and very risky.   We can level the playing field with your landlord and property manager and enforce your legal rights against them.  We have been handling renters' cases for years.  Click HERE to read about us in the news on Landlord-Tenant matters.

 

Unsafe Workplace/OSHA/Whistleblower Protection

Our law firm successfully represents workers forced to occupy hazardous work areas and suffer exposure to:

  • Water damage and damp conditions
  • Mold
  • Asbestos
  • Lead
  • Chemicals
  • Other environmental hazards  

Often, workers that speak up to their employers or others such as OSHA regarding workplace exposure hazards become the target of retaliation by their employers and even termination.  The law provides workers with protections from exposure to environmental hazards on the job and further establishes safeguards against employer retaliation for "whistleblowing" on the hazards. We can help you if you have been, or currently are, exposed to environmental hazards at your work, have already "blown the whistle," are being retaliated against by your employer, or are being discriminated against due to a disability related to your wortplace exposure. We can also help if you have been wrongfully terminated from your employment.  Do not sign a "severance agreement" before you talk to us.
