Business and Real Estate Litigation: Do We Want a Jury? A Critical Question!

Buffington Law Firm's business and real estate trial attorneys are often faced with the question as to whether the case should ultimately be decided by a judge or by a jury. In most types of civil trials (probate proceedings being a notable exception) a party is entitled to a trial by jury under most circumstances. Whether to ultimately elect a jury trial is never a simple question. And yet the decision whether to employ a jury can be one of the most far-reaching decisions that lawyer and client can make. In this brief article we will discuss a few of the considerations that should go into making such decision.  We make no pretense that this article covers all of the factors involved.

Investment Fraud -- What to Do if You are a Victim

Buffington Law Firm's breach of contract and investment fraud attorneys have successfully handled numerous cases involving investment fraud. Last week we described the nature of a typical fraudulent investment scheme. The red flag indicator that one's investment is fraudulently invested is when the investor seeks to legitimately cash in all or part of the investment, and the investment manager delays or balks at honoring the request. After working many such schemes over the past two decades, we have learned that this is an unfailingly accurate "red flag" that fraud may be present.

Investment Fraud; What It Is and How to Spot It

Buffington Law Firm's breach of contract and investment fraud attorneys have represented numerous clients who have been victimized by investment fraud. Regrettably, these cases tend to fall into a familiar pattern - a person entrusts his or her investment portfolio, which frequently represents the bulk of the client's life's savings, to a purported investment manager. The investment manager/advisor then promises to manage the client's portfolio as a fiduciary. A fiduciary is someone who is entrusted with the assets of another who promises to put their client's interests ahead of their own and act with diligence and skill for the client's best interests.
