While most of our clients will resolve their disputes without the need for a trial, experience has taught us that many of our clients take comfort in the fact that their attorney has often been in court and has trial experience. In addition, they know that we have experience with some of the lesser-known matters including:
     * Discovery and tracing of hidden income and assets
     * Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) actions affecting child custody and interstate jurisdiction
     * High asset divorce, including valuation and distribution of closely held businesses

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is the negligence of any health care provider (doctor, nursing, hospital, chiropractor, etc.) which results in injury or death of a patient. In theory, it is merely another form of negligence (such as negligent driving) which requires expert witnesses to testify to the “standard of care” in the relevant medical community.

Landlord and Tenant Issues

George Young has handled numerous issues for landlords and for a variety of tenants from small retail operators to large anchor tenants. He has negotiated and drafted a variety of leases, and he understands the requirements of the landlord’s lender under the leasing agreement. In the current economic climate, more tenants are struggling to meet lease obligations while landlords are struggling to meet debt obligations. Mr. Young has the experience necessary to assist landlords and tenants in negotiating or renegotiating lease terms so help tenants remain on site, and to preserve rental income for landlords so financing is not jeopardized. George Young understands the bigger picture, and he can work with all parties toward the desired result.

Shoplifting

Shoplifting is very prevalent in today’s culture.   Many times, the defendants in these types of cases are teenagers who had to learn the hard way that stealing from a store carries very serious consequences.  The Law Office of George Young is very sympathetic to this “learning experience”, and will do everything in our power to get our clients the best possible outcome for their future.

Dog Bite

Los Angeles attorney George Young represents people injured by dog bites and animal attacks in California, offering information and case evaluations to all prospective clients. Contact our Law Firm today at 626-795-9699 to schedule a consultation.

Divorce

An experienced divorce attorney may be able to help resolve disputes during a divorce and can assist you if you need to pursue legal action to protect what is rightfully yours. Because divorce cases are often emotionally-charged and can be very complicated at times, it is important to have someone on your side to help you protect yourself and your livelihood.

Commercial Disputes

Our lawyers handle business disputes involving commercial contracts in a wide range of areas such as the purchase and sale of businesses, utility contracts, contracts for the sale or development of intellectual property, construction contracts, and partnership disputes. We are experienced in litigating all types of cases under the Uniform Commercial Code, including contracts for the sale of goods, security interests, loan transactions, banking, procedures and investment.
