Aggressive representation and sound legal counsel to achieve business and personal objectives and solve legal problems
We help business people or consumers with assets to protect facing the need for legal assistance either in connection with a business or real estate transaction, or the defense of a claim or potential claim against those assets, or in pursuit of a claim or potential claim.
Also, we help small to medium sized businesses seeking legal assistance to grow or protect the entities. Also, individuals seeking dissolution of a partnership where significant assets or liabilities are involved.
Our judicial system is a fearsome maze of procedural and legal pitfalls that is becoming ever more unpredictable and which, if not properly engaged, can result in devastating losses or the loss of a valuable claim or item of property.
The attorneys at Mehlman TerBeek LLP are highly experienced attorneys with significant business and litigation backgrounds that bring to bear on each case, a unique perspective that incorporates not just the bare legal and procedural aspects of the case, but also a realism that addresses the strategic considerations, and economic circumstances and personal backgrounds of the parties and the court officers passing judgment on the case.
How are we different?
As transactional attorneys, our approach is to facilitate making deals work while protecting our client&8217;s interests and advising them of the risks, rather than becoming road blocks to the consummation of deals or deal breaches.
When transactions have gone wrong, Mehlman TerBeek LLP attorneys are aggressive and tenacious litigators in state, federal and administrative courts and arbitrations, who taylor their litigation strategies to the unique aspects of each particular case.
What's the value to me?
In addition to charging at the competitive end of the prices being charged by attorney with similar experience, we vary our approach and strategies to achieve client goals based upon the circumstances of the case and the parties involved.
What are our services?
Mehlman TerBeek LLP was established by Steven J. Mehlman and Marc L. TerBeek in 2002, with the goal of providing superior representation at reasonable rates and in a cost-effective manner. The firm&8217;s practice combines three principal practice areas: real estate, business, and civil litigation.
With respect to real estate and business matters, the firm regularly engages both as transactional lawyers and litigators. As transactional lawyers, our approach is to facilitate making deals work while protecting their clients&8217; interest, rather than becoming road blocks to the consummation of deals or deal breakers.
However, when transactions have gone wrong, Mehlman TerBeek LLP attorneys are aggressive and tenacious litigators both in the state and federal courts and in arbitration. We also have a high success rate in resolving cases through mediation, where appropriate, and thereby substantially reducing lawyers&8217; fees and litigation expenses.
The attorneys in the firm collectively have decades of legal experience. Steven J. Mehlman has been practicing law since 1980, and works primarily in the areas of real estate and business law, handling both transactions and civil litigation. Marc L. TerBeek focuses his practice in civil litigation, including insurance coverage disputes, employment litigation, personal injuries and business and real estate matters. Cynthia Hannon has considerable and varied experience in assisting clients with Civil matters. Timothy A. Walker has 12 years of experience practicing civil litigation in both California and Hawaii, where he was formerly a partner of a 32 member law firm at which he engaged in a varied civil litigation practice in State and Federal Courts and administrative hearings.
Together, the attorneys and staff of Mehlman TerBeek LLP assist clients in providing sound legal advice, representation and counseling over a broad range of legal issues.
