At Toma & Associates, we endeavor to resolve disputes without resorting to litigation when possible. We also help our clients by providing counsel and guidance that will reduce the likelihood of being involved in litigation.
But sometimes the only effective way to protect or enforce your rights and interests are to take the matter to court. Or, you could also be sued and have to defend yourself to avoid losing money or other adverse consequences.
With twenty-five years of experience, we have handled a variety of legal matters in court. In addition to collections, which is described separately, we have litigated cases involving business and commercial disputes, construction, real estate, landlord-tenant, employment matters, franchises, breach of contract, etc. Fees may be charged hourly or on a contingency basis, depending on the nature of the case. We have practiced regularly in Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Summit, and Lorain Common Pleas Courts, and almost every municipal court in the area as well.
At Toma & Associates, we’re not afraid to take on the tough cases and difficult issues. Several cases have been won at the appellate level involving fraudulent transfers, franchise rights, and liquidated damages, including
- Arrow Uniform Rental, LP v. K & D Group, Inc., 2011-Ohio-6203, 2011 Ohio App. LEXIS 5072 (11th Dist. 2011).
We do not currently handle some areas directly, such as personal injury, medical malpractice, domestic relations, and criminal law. However, we can often refer you to other qualified attorneys who specialize in these areas.
Time is always important in any legal matter potentially involving litigation. Call Toma & Associates at (440) 516-0200 x 215 promptly if you have a concern.
