Business Litigation

Breach of Contract – Contract disputes often arise in the implementation or enforcement of commercial contracts. Our civil litigation attorney represents clients in interpreting and enforcing professional, business, and service contracts to ensure that the interests of our clients are protected.

Business Partnership Disputes – Business partnership disputes often arise for various reasons as partners operate a company and work together. Some of the most frequent reasons for partnership disputes arise from breach of fiduciary duty, authority disputes, violation of non-compete agreements, disclosure of confidential information, and misappropriation of trade secrets. Our business litigation attorney aggressively represents clients in litigating business partnership disputes to protect business interests. We also assist clients in preventing disputes from arising by drafting comprehensive partnership agreements that clearly delineate each party’s rights and responsibilities.

Labor and Employment – A variety of issues can arise in the employer-employee relationship, including contract issues, non-compete provision, wage disputes, discrimination and harassment claims and intellectual property issues. We represent employees and employers who are faced with legal challenges or disputes. Our law firm can also help employers avoid these issues by drafting and implementing employment policies and procedures.

Real Estate Litigation

Landlord/Tenant – Landlord/tenant disputes typically involve lease violations, failure to pay rent, and/or lack of maintenance of a residential or commercial property. Our Panama City real estate attorney represents landlords and tenants in actions for ejectment, eviction, breach of lease agreement and unlawful detainer.

Title and Boundary Disputes – Title and boundary disputes often require quiet title actions, prescriptive easement, ejectment, or declaratory judgment.

Property Insurance Claims – Insurance disputes regarding residential or commercial property losses typically include disputes regarding coverage for damages or disputes regarding the scope of damages and repairs.

Construction Litigation – Disputes arising out of construction defects requires the use of expert witnesses with technical knowledge of the construction process to successfully prosecute. Our civil litigation attorney handles construction disputes in pre-suit negotiations and litigation if needed.

Condominium and Homeowners’ Association Disputes – Association disputes can include breach of fiduciary duty, property title disputes, injunctive relief, arbitration or mediation settlement enforcement, and financial matters such as fines and assessments. Our real estate attorney handles litigation of homeowners association disputes in Panama City and Northwest Florida.

Mortgage Foreclosure – Foreclosure is the legal process by which a lender attempts to recover the amount owed on a defaulted loan by taking ownership of the mortgaged property and selling it. Typically, default is triggered when a borrower misses a specific number of monthly payments, but it can also happen when the borrower fails to meet other terms in the mortgage document.

Probate Litigation

Probate – The term “probate” is used in connection with the process of administering a decedent’s estate. In Florida, the probate court has jurisdiction over both probate and guardianship matters. Our civil litigation attorney represents clients involved in disputes over the legitimacy of a will, trust, or power of attorney, the administration of an estate or trust, or the appointment of a guardian or conservator.

Guardianship – Guardianship is the court-supervised process of managing a person and/or their property if they are unable to manage for themselves.

Personal Injury Litigation

Car Accident Injuries

Our Panama City personal injury attorney provides aggressive representation in cases involving personal injury and car accidents. Our law firm provides clients with professional and personalized attention with personal injury claims. With years of experience representing insurance companies in personal injury litigation, Attorney Karim Tabbaa knows how to maximize these claims so that clients get what they rightfully deserve. Our law firm serves clients throughout Northwest Florida and the Emerald Coast including Panama City, Destin, and the surrounding areas.

Slip and Fall Injuries

We represent injured people against liable parties in premises liability lawsuits. Property owners have a duty to take reasonable measures to keep their premises safe for guests, visitors, and patrons. When a property owner fails to address preventable hazards and a slip and fall accident occurs, the property owner is liable to the injured party for his failure to keep the premises safe. Injuries from falls can be life-altering and victims of slip and fall accidents deserve compensation to help them get the medical treatment that they need.
