Cases We Handle
Personal Injury Representation in St. Petersburg
In Florida, personal injury law is in place to protect individuals who have suffered harm due to the negligence or recklessness of others. If you have been injured in an accident, it is crucial to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side to help you navigate the legal process and ensure that your rights are protected.
Our personal injury team can help you understand your legal options and develop a strategy to pursue fair compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. We can handle negotiations with insurance companies, represent you in court if necessary, and guide you through every step of the legal process to help you pursue a fair result.
Domestic Violence & Abuse
Domestic violence is a serious and pervasive problem that affects individuals and families nationwide. It takes many forms, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, financial control, and isolation from friends and family.
At Emerson Law, P.A., we offer a range of services to help victims of domestic violence. We can start by filing for an injunction of protection, known as a restraining order. This court order prohibits abusers from carrying out or threatening further harm and includes additional directives and restrictions to protect victims and their families.
We can also help those who have been abused by filing for divorce or separation and pursuing compensation for damages related to the abuse.
We recognize that every case is unique; we work closely with you to develop personalized legal strategies tailored to your specific needs and goals.
At Emerson Law, P.A., we also understand the complexities of landlord-tenant legal issues in Florida. Whether you are a landlord seeking guidance on your rights and obligations or a tenant looking to protect your interests, our experienced attorneys can provide you with the legal support and representation you need.
Landlords in Florida have specific rights and obligations, including the responsibility to provide habitable housing and abide by local and state housing codes. They also have the right to collect rent and evict tenants who fail to pay. At the same time, landlords must respect their tenants’ privacy and not retaliate against them for exercising their legal rights.
Tenants in Florida have certain rights and obligations as well. They include the right to receive notice of any changes to the rental agreement, protection against retaliation from landlords, and the right to a safe and secure living environment. Tenants must pay rent on time, keep their units clean and safe, and not disturb their neighbors.
Call us for a consultation if you need assistance with landlord-tenant legal issues, including understanding your rights and obligations, resolving disputes, or pursuing or defending against an eviction. Our skilled attorneys will listen to your story, answer your questions, and help you seek a fair result.
