Real Estate Disputes

Property disputes may arise from breach of contract, fraud, disputes over boundaries, undisclosed easements or covenants, easement rights, location of underground utilities, or various other issues. Disputes may occur due to a variety of reasons, but because a real estate dispute can be highly emotional, it’s important to document all evidence and conversations. The Lampel Firm may advise you regarding easements and zoning, or even whether to enter into a development contract. Real estate disputes can be time-consuming, especially when a court is involved, so it’s important to have a real estate attorney working with you from the beginning.

Quiet Title Actions

A quiet title action is a circuit court lawsuit filed with the intent of establishing or settling the title to a property; the litigation is intended to resolve or quiet the claim or objection to the title. Quiet title litigation may be initiated by the holder of a prior deed of title to the property, or by someone with a claim to the title. Quiet title actions are not typical court filings because the value of the property at issue is relatively high, usually more than 100 million dollars. However, quiet title actions are important because title is fundamental and may be the most important part of the underlying claim. Establishing or settling the title to the property will help resolve the dispute.

Easement Matters

An easement is the right to use another person’s property for a specific purpose. There are many different types of easements disputes pertaining to driveway access, road access, parking disputes, preventing someone from blocking your view, and billboard easements. A boundary dispute may arise in which an easement is attached to property, and one or both parties believe that they are the rightful owner of the land. Since easements are a special kind of property, the laws surrounding easements differ from the laws surrounding other types of property. 

Buy-Sell Agreements

A buy/sell agreement is a prudent forethought for your business. Having a buyout agreement in place insures continuity in the event you retire, become incapacitated or die. A buyout agreement avoids potential taxation problems and provides an orderly transfer of wealth and ownership. For example, if your company purchased XYZ Corporation for $1 million in 2010, a breakup agreement transfers title of the assets to the decedent’s beneficiaries. The agreement also specifies that the surviving spouse may die before his or her spouse, and that the entire value of the assets are transferred to the surviving spouse’s estate. Without a buyout agreement, the spouse will inherit a half of the value.

Personal Injury

In the world of personal injury litigation, some attorneys go for a quick payout but that oftentimes results in their clients receiving far less compensation than they are entitled. Eric Lampel, on the other hand, has proven multiple times that he will fight for a fair settlement for his clients, with major victories in an Alaska bar assault case ($500,000 judgment) and others. Mr. Lampel brings in experts and others to carefully analyze the case and negotiate a fair outcome. The exact amount of compensation a client receives is often dependent on the facts of the case and the extent of physical and emotional damages. In some cases, the client’s past criminal record or any previous incidents may have a substantial impact on the amount that he or she receives in compensation. The attorney may not immediately realize that the defendant’s previous record could have a negative impact and may not pursue this avenue. Sometimes, an injury victim is unsure whether or not to file a lawsuit. The person might first contact his or her insurer and wonder if any compensation or damages can be determined at this point. An attorney may provide advice on the best course of action to take. Eric Lampel is often sought out for his experience in personal injury law.

DUI & Murder

When defending against a criminal DUI or murder accusation, your attorney must be willing to present as many mitigating factors as possible, oftentimes at complete odds with media coverage and the full force of the law enforcement and prosecutorial system. Consider the Shantae Molina case that received national coverage; Ms. Molina was accused of murdering her infant. Not only was she acquitted but Mr. Lampel successfully litigated corrupt law enforcement for a settlement on her behalf. In any criminal proceeding, the burden of proof is on the prosecution to present evidence that you are indeed guilty of the crimes you are accused of. In DUI cases, any one of the mitigating facts can lead to your acquittal. Felony DUI in California can ruin your life and leave you imprisoned. This is why it is crucial to be represented by a criminal defense attorney who is experienced and thorough in their preparation and representation through all the steps of the legal process.
