Contracts Require an Experienced Civil Litigation Attorney

Individuals and businesses enter contracts every day. These can range from consumer purchase agreements, real estate contracts, employment agreements, partnership formations, operating agreements, payment agreements, and countless others. When someone fails to live up to their end of the bargain, we can help to resolve and litigate the dispute in state or federal court.

Contract language can be confusing if your area of expertise is not contract law. That is why we are here. Not only can we help draft contracts, but we can explain the terms of contracts you are already in, and we can correct loopholes in pending contracts that may threaten you in the future.

Dealing with Fraud or Misrepresentation?

When an individual or business makes a misrepresentation, fails to honor a warranty, or commits fraud in a consumer transaction, state and federal laws can protect you, the consumer. Our experience with these specific laws will benefit you.

California law protects consumers from fraud and misrepresentation in an array of different industries.  We have seen fraud lawsuits arise from improper adoption procedures, unfair automotive repair, unethical medical practices, payday lending scams, real estate appraising, and even funeral planning. If an industry exists, there is the possibility of fraud and misrepresentation within it.

Consumers are victims of fraud and misrepresentation more commonly than anyone wants to believe. Many times, consumers are so used to being taken advantage of that when a major loss is sustained because of a business’s unethical practices, they simply say, “I should have known not to trust them,” but we can help you achieve justice.  Consumers do not have to simply take the abuse.  “Buyer beware” is no longer the ruler of consumer law, and you have options. We will hear your story with compassion and explain actions you can take to recover damages.

Do You Need Employment Litigation Advice?

Employment litigation is usually the effect of a staff member suing their employer for some reason. Sometimes employees sue on harassment or discrimination grounds. Harassment of employees of a protected class such as gender, sexual orientation, race, or religion is illegal.

Even employers with comprehensive anti-harassment and antidiscrimination policies can find themselves facing this type of employment litigation. In either of these situations, competent legal counsel is important.

Some employment litigation is related to workers' compensation and workplace safety violations. Sometimes lawsuits arise over disputes involving employee benefits and pensions. Businesses can also face employment litigation from someone not employed by them claiming unfair hiring practices or discriminatory hiring policies.

Whether you need a civil litigation attorney because you need to file a claim against an employer or if you are an employer facing an employment-related lawsuit, we can help.

Are You Considering Construction Litigation?

When a construction team did not complete work you paid for, it can be frustrating and damaging to your home or business. Our team can help prepare and file liens, litigate construction contracts, and guide you through the state’s process.

Construction litigation can vary from improper pool installations to disastrous rooftop solar mistakes to major development project disputes. We offer practical solutions at any stage of these disputes. Sometimes construction litigation is based in breach of contract issues, but sometimes it’s rooted in negligence. Frequently, construction litigation must go through an arbitration process due to contract obligations. Regardless, at any step of the claim process, your best chance at remediation or compensation is with a civil litigation attorney knowledgeable in construction law.

Alternatively, are you a contractor who has done the work but are yet to be paid? Or have recently been accused of substandard work? If so, we've got your back. We can construction litigation services to ensure you don't suffer for the effort you put in while providing contractors services. We can help protect your business from disputed client claims and combat those arguments that you haven't provided the services as expected. You're not in this alone, we'll make sure that you get compensated fairly for your services.

Do You Need an Insurance Claims Lawyer?

Are you seeking a civil litigation attorney to handle legal matters pertaining to an insurance claim? You paid expensive premiums for coverage of your person, business, or property for a reason. While it’s common knowledge that any insurance company’s goal is to maximize profits, this should never come at the expense of not being accountable for their contractual obligations when it is time to pay out.  Our experience in insurance litigation allows us to thoroughly examine your legal options for recourse and find the solution that is in your best interest.

Efficient and No-nonsense

Brian Liu, Esq., Founder of LegalZoom and BizCounsel

I am an attorney myself, and I’ve worked with hundreds of lawyers in my career. I also run a small real estate fund, and unfortunately, we got into a sticky situation with title – specifically, there was an undisclosed lien, and since we already sold the property, title insurance wouldn’t defend. I hate that title company! In any case, we were almost served with a default judgment, but fortunately, Jody and the team saved us. They’re efficient, no-nonsense, and got the job done. We didn’t need to overpay, and we got a good result. I’ve worked with Jody before, and I would not hesitate to work with his firm again.

Winter Review


Mr. Winter was very helpful in helping me get a final bonus from my previous employer. He wrote several letters and helped with the negotiations with my employer's attorney.

Worked Hard on my Behalf


Jody Winter and the LloydWinter, P.C. team did a great job for me in a business litigation case that we had! They took on a bigger firm and worked hard on my behalf. I would highly recommend that you use them for any litigation matter you have.

Couldn't Have Asked for Better Legal Help


I couldn't have asked for better legal help. Sean never let me give up, believing in me until the very end. I hope I never need legal counsel again, but if I do this is where I'm going.
