Civil Law

Civil Law AttorneyHaving served clients in Kansas and Nebraska for decades, we can help you identify the appropriate cause of action to address the issues you face, negotiate with the opposing party to seek a resolution without the expense of litigation, and, if necessary, initiate or defend litigation in either State or Federal court.

Our firm can help with a number of civil law issues, including:

Landlord-Tenant Disputes

For landlords, owning rental property can be a secure investment which provides a steady flow of income, but numerous issues can interfere with or jeopardize that investment. Our firm can assist you in drafting your lease agreements, so that those agreements are legally valid and provide you protections specifically tailored to your situation. We can also provide you with legal advice on how to handle situations that come up during or after tenancy, allowing you to take efficient action consistent with the applicable provisions of the Kansas Landlord-Tenant Act.

For tenants, renting property can be an ideal living situation, but issues can quickly threaten that living situation and your financial well-being. Our firm can analyze your lease agreement, inform you of your legal rights, and professionally negotiate with landlords or defend you in litigation to protect your interests.

Collections

For businesses, nothing is more frustrating than developing a customer base and working to be successful, only to have a large number of accounts receivable and be unable to collect. Our firm can assist you in securing your flow of income in an efficient manner, utilizing all available legal means while complying with all legal requirements.

For consumers, indecent and illegal collection practices can threaten your credit, reputation, and cause extreme mental distress. Our firm can inform you of your rights, identify illegal collections practices, and pursue those creditors who have crossed the line. Kansas law not only entitles you to penalties from creditors in these situations, but may also mandate that those creditors pay your legal fees.
