At the Law Offices of Patel & Cardenas, our team of litigation professionals frequently win cases that other law firms turn away.

Our litigation attorneys will take the time to listen to your story and accurately assess the legal challenge you are facing. We can answer any questions you may have and lay out all of the options available to you. If you are the party who is suing, we can file the summons and complaint; if you are the party who is being sued, we can file a response. We will walk with you every step of the way through pre-trial discovery, the trial phase, and the collection of reward (or appeal, if necessary).

We Focus On A Variety Of Litigation Situations; No Matter How Challenging Your Case May Be, Trust Us To Have Your Back & Relentlessly Pursue A Winning Outcome!

There are many circumstances that may warrant litigation. We are well-equipped to handle a variety of cases, including those involving:

Probate – When someone passes away, their estate may need to go through a complex court process known as probate in order for their assets to pass to their beneficiaries. A variety of legal disputes can arise during probate. Family members, creditors, and other vested parties may engage in litigation around the distribution of the inheritance. We understand how delicate probate can be, and we will work to protect your rights and your loved ones wishes. 

Foreclosure – If you miss mortgage payments on your home, you may be served with a foreclosure complaint; in order to save your home, you need a strong defense. Our lawyers can help you file an answer, understand your options, and protect your rights!

Partition Actions – When two or more co-owners of a piece of real estate property don’t agree on the future of the property, partition may be the best course of action; this allows the property to be divided into separate parts or sold, with the proceeds equitably. Partition action cases can be complicated, but we can protect your rights and work to achieve your ideal results!

Whistleblower/Retaliation Claims – Employees are protected from being retaliated against (demoted, fired, harassed, etc.) for objecting to something they believe is in violation of the law. For example, if you disclose information that your boss isn’t paying you the minimum wage, and they fire you because of it, we can help you make a whistleblower claim against them and recover compensation. The Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) protects your right to testify against your employer, to object to improper patient care practices (if you are a healthcare professional), and more.

Discrimination – People are protected from being treated differently by their employer, public businesses, landlords, and other parties on the basis of race, religion, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, disability, gender expression, parental status, age, and other characteristics under various federal and state discrimination laws. If you have experienced discrimination or harassment, we can take legal action and pursue damages for the emotional and financial consequences you suffered!

Consumer Fraud – The Consumer Fraud Act (CFA) protects consumers against fraudulent marketplace practices. If you were sold a faulty product, or a seller failed to warn you about problems with a product that resulted in your injury, we can fight to hold the seller accountable and pursue maximum compensation. 

Interpleader Actions – When two or more parties are engaged in a dispute over an asset or assets that are held by a third party, the third party can deposit the asset with the court, who will then determine who should hold the assets; the third party (interpleader) is therefore removed from responsibility. We can help you understand how interpleader actions work and what the benefits may be depending on your circumstances!

Arbitration – Arbitration is an alternative to courtroom litigation that is less formal than a trial but more formal than a mediation or negotiation. In arbitration, parties take their disputes to an arbitrator who reviews the evidence, listens to both sides’ cases, and then makes a final decision. Arbitration can be either voluntary or mandatory (when it comes from a contract that is voluntarily entered into), and can be binding or non-binding (when a decision cannot be imposed upon the parties). Having a lawyer on your side can vastly improve the chances of a favorable decision. 

And More.

Very pleased with the level of care and attention in dealing with this law firm. They were always quick to respond and patient with a very impatient first time home buyer! Robert Ranalli was my attorney and I would recommend for any legal needs.
