Most people never really think about a time when they will need a lawyer. However, when a problem arises and you do need a lawyer, it is important to turn to someone who will fight for you. If you are the victim of attorney malpractice, or are involved in a real estate or business dispute, it may be time to contact an experienced attorney. At The Law Offices of John P. Hannon II, our experienced attorneys represent clients who seek compensation for damages related to a legal malpractice issue or who need help regarding real estate and business disputes. We are familiar with the complexities of these types of cases and are eager to help. 

Legal Malpractice

When you are dealing with a legal issue, you should be able to trust that your attorney will provide competent representation. Lawyers in California are obligated to follow certain professional rules of conduct. These rules impose many requirements on attorneys, such as understanding the law before taking a case. Attorneys must also strictly follow several rules regarding firm fees, your bill, and how to handle your money.

Unfortunately, some attorneys fail to obey these rules. When your lawyer takes action without your authorization, acts incompetently, and otherwise mismanages your case, you may need to seek legal action against him or her. Our firm has helped countless clients throughout the Bay Area gain compensation for attorney malpractice.

Business Law

Regardless of the size of your business, you will likely need the help of a reputable business lawyer at some point. You may want to start a business, acquire another business, or need information about complying with local laws. Our full-service business law firm can help you resolve these issues. We also offer other business law services such as help with issues like:

  • Selling your business;
  • Working with financial experts for business valuation;

Real Estate Disputes

Purchasing real estate is a complex financial transaction. With so many factors to consider and options to weigh, a lot can go wrong during your purchase or sale. As a purchaser or seller, you have legal rights under California law. These rights are particularly important if another party has violated your sale contract. Often, real estate buyers face issues with their property that were not previously disclosed as required by law. 

Another common issue is when the real estate agent, home inspector, buyer or seller knowingly misrepresents false information about the property in an effort to close the deal. Our firm is dedicated to representing plaintiffs in real estate disputes. Whether you are a first time homeowner, or deal with commercial real estate, contact our real estate lawyers today to discuss how we can help.
