personal injury

Car wrecks happen to even the most careful driver, especially when the accident is caused by someone else. Even though an accident wasn’t your fault, the experience is scary and can be very traumatic. Car wreck cases can be complicated and have a serious physical and emotional effect on those involved. Sadly, insurance companies have many resources to limit and devalue the injuries, inconvenience, and pain and suffering that you may suffer in these unfortunate events. You will need a competent and aggressive attorney to get through the unexpected and overwhelming effects of these trying circumstances. As a result of the accident, you may have suffered serious injuries and incur substantial medical bills. Additionally, your injuries may cause you to miss time at work resulting in lost wages. I am here to help you and fight for your right to be made whole again.

At Percy, Skias & Schutte we are here to protect you and your family’s rights. There is no charge for your initial consultation and our firm does not get a single penny unless you get paid. There are no attorney’s fees or case expenses unless we get you the settlement you deserve or win your case in court. We take all of your stress away so that you can focus on your recovery from the injuries you may have sustained in the accident.

Commercial law

If you are starting a business, it is best to seek legal assistance at the outset.  On too many occasions, smart people with the best of intentions go into business without proper planning.  Likewise, there are those who form partnerships on a hand shake deal.  Our commercial lawyers can guide business owners in considering all of the risks and consequences of a planned venture and advise on how to limit those risks.

Commercial litigation

Even the most successful businesses find themselves faced with litigation.  Some even consider litigation the cost of doing business.  Our commercial litigators assist clients in matters involving breach of contract, tort, debt collection and other matters.  We are experienced in assisting clients to evaluate the risk and benefit of settlement versus trial every step through litigation.   And for those cases that do not settle, we vigorously pursue our client’s case through trial and appeal.

Commercial transactions

We assist our clients in the art of the commercial transaction from the negotiation stage through the closing date.  This includes negotiations, drafting, due diligence, closing tasks and everything in between.
