Practice Areas

Mr. Zotti and Mr. Sadowski work smart to serve you better. One way we keep ahead of the game is to focus our practice on a limited number of areas. Rather than being all things to all people, we hone our skills on the types of cases detailed below. Since we concentrate our efforts, we have all the most current information and resources available to resolve our clients' problems in those areas. Don't you deserve the representation of someone who takes your issues that seriously? If you have a legal matter in the following areas, we will give our full attention to your needs.

Criminal Defense

Chances are, you have never been charged with a crime before. Whether you have been charged with a felony or "just" a misdemeanor, you now face a process that carries with it the possibility of real and permanent consequences. Criminal defendants often do not know how serious their own situation is. You should know that whatever the charge is, it is serious and needs to be addressed.

A conviction for even a "minor" charge can lead to jail time, fines, or both. And your conviction will become part of a criminal record that can cost you employment and financial opportunities in future. Now, as never before, you need to fight to protect your rights, and you need a skilled criminal defense attorney who will stand up for you. Contact our office for advice.

DUI/DWI

If you have been cited for DUI/DWI, you should know that the law gives serious consequences upon conviction. And these punishments drunk driving are even more severe for repeat offenders. A DUI sentence may require you to pay a substantial fine, serve some time in jail, or both. In addition to any fines or jail time, your driver's license may be suspended, even if it is your first offense.

You will have to find alternate transportation and go through considerable effort to regain your driving privileges after a drunk driving conviction. To add insult to injury, many insurance companies will drop your motor vehicle coverage if you get a DUI. The companies that will insure you will only do so at a greatly increased premium. It is easy to see how important it is to protect your rights - and to do that, you need a lawyer who will work to stop these consequences from becoming reality. Contact our firm today.

Family Law-Family law matters can be emotionally draining, particularly when children are involved. Divorce, custody, and support all concern the most basic human relationships: husband and wife and parent and child. When a family law issue occurs, it is important to remember that these are legal relationships, as well as emotional bonds. You have rights and responsibilities in those relationships that will be protected or enforced by the court.

You must not let yourself be blinded by the emotions involved so that you neglect the many difficult legal issues that will arise in a family law case. If you are facing a divorce, child custody or visitation, support, or another family-related legal issue, you need expert legal assistance to protect your rights. We can make sure that you are not taken advantage of during the proceedings.

Litigation-To ensure the best possible results for the client, an attorney needs to be willing to take a case all the way to trial. Many lawyers avoid the courtroom, but we thrive on trying lawsuits. We have built a reputation for credibility in the courts and in the legal profession, and that reputation aids our success.

Our civil litigation work has encompassed motion practice, bench and jury trials, and even appeals where necessary. Our thorough preparation and understanding of all of the facts is essential to our trial work, and that effort yields real results for our clients. We do not take cases with the idea that we will settle - we take cases with litigation in mind, and we try cases to win.

Personal Injury-If you or someone you love has been injured, you know how complicated life suddenly becomes. When you hire us, our goal is to make at least one part of your recovery as easy as possible. When you are injured through the carelessness or recklessness of another, maybe through a car crash or other accident, the law says that the responsible party owes you financial compensation for your injuries, lost wages, medical expenses, and other hardships.

Your family may also have a right to compensation. We can guide you through the legal process and maximize your compensation. Whether you are hurt by a car accident, a slip and fall or a defective product, remember - you are owed this money. At this difficult time, you need to focus on your physical and mental recovery - let us take care of your legal recovery.

Real Estate-Real estate is a major investment, and can cause major headaches. If you are selling a house or buying a house or a business property, we can help. Our firm can draft or review purchase agreements and closing documents to smooth your transaction. We can confirm that there is good title to the property and verify that there are no disputes about ownership or boundaries.

Our attorneys can make sure that any transaction complies with local and state property and environmental rules so that there are no unwelcome surprises as the deal moves forward. We also help clients with construction defects, commercial leases, and property disclosure and condition issues. Contact us for experienced real estate assistance.

Business Organizations and Transactions-Legal issues and pitfalls abound at every stage of a business's existence, from the initial start-up to dissolution or sale of the company. It is important to have expert legal counsel assist you right from the beginning, when you are deciding on a business form (corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or another business entity), as well as further down the road.

We are experienced business lawyers that will help you deal with the almost endless variety of legal matters that will, sooner or later, arise when you do business. From buy-sell agreements, joint ventures, and liability issues to mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and business successions, you need intelligent advice that will promote your success. We can tell you not only what the law requires, but also how you can seize opportunities and avoid problems in your business.
