Check out our practice areas below.

General Trial Practice

There is an old saying that the only ones who win when your case goes to court is the lawyers. We recognize there is much truth to this and strongly support resolving issues out of court. However, litigation is sometimes the only option to resolve an issue. Our team understands the stress and uncertainty our clients face when going through a trial. That’s why we make sure your case is given the time and attention necessary to prevail in court.

Will & Estate Planning

Led by Tyler DeWitt, an attorney and certified public accountant, our team has both the technical skill and experience to ensure your wishes are carried out after death.  We prepare wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care directives, and other long-term planning tools.  We also advise on tax consequences related to estates and trusts to maximize the wealth of your heirs instead of the government.

Contracts

In today’s world, individuals and businesses need more than just a handshake to make an agreement. Contracts are often long and tedious and significant controversy can arise if a contract is not properly drafted. Having a licensed attorney prepare or review your contracts helps ensure that your rights are protected and that you understand exactly what you are agreeing to. Common contracts our firm prepares or reviews include:

  • Contracts to sell or buy a business
  • Land sale contracts
  • Leases
  • Non-compete employment agreements
  • Professional engagement agreements
  • Residential home construction contracts
  • Service contracts

Business Litigation & Disputes

When businesses face legal issues or decide to take legal action, the stakes are typically high.  These legal issues range from breach of contract claims and non-compete agreements to multi-million-dollar collections cases.  With DeWitt Law, you will have an attorney guide you through these issues, disclose the risks, and develop a plan of action to resolve them.  Our number one goal is to resolve your legal issues, whether in court or through alternative dispute resolution.

Personal Injury

If you or a loved one has been injured by the negligence of another, it is critical that you seek experienced legal counsel to make a claim. Filing a personal injury lawsuit requires an understanding of the law as well as strict procedural requirements. Hiring an attorney often significantly increases your chances of recovering damages and ensuring your rights are adequately preserved. Whether it is a car accident, dog bite, medical malpractice, or any other event resulting in serious physical injury, our team can help.

Accountant Liability & Malpractice Defense

Accountants, especially tax preparers, face a multitude of possible liability and professional negligence claims. Our team has successfully defended the rights of accountants and stands ready to assist when a claim is made. A representative list of claims we have defended against is listed below:

  • Negligence claim filed against tax preparer
