James J. Corbett

I am an advocate, communicator, and wordsmith. I serve my clients - individuals and small businesses - in situations that could end up in a trial, hearing or mediation, and/or advise them on how to stay away from problems with well worded agreements and well thought out plans. Lots of advice, fact finding, research and just plain working with people occurs before stating my client's case at a mediation, trial or hearing. The small business portion of my practice includes contract work, employment advisement, business formation, and lately helping entertainment oriented businesses get it right from the beginning. As a writer and broadcaster I understand creating valuable assets and works such as "reality shows" and music or movie creations needing trademarks and copy rights.,As an advocate I work to protect my clients' rights by strongly addressing any wrongs committed against them. My practice balances favorably resolving disputes with helping clients develop their projects from concept to completion - and to protect them so they can grow and prosper.
I use the law and common sense to help my clients succeed. My judicial clerkship during my first year out of law school taught me the system from the inside while watching a year's worth of all sorts of trials. I learned what judges and juries want.
Trials are fun for litigators like me, but satisfaction from a well planned and protected project is just as good.

Accident Lawyers: The word accident is not a technical legal term with a clearly defined meaning. Speaking generally, but with reference to legal liabilities, an accident means any unintended and unexpected occurrence which produces hurt or loss. But it is often used to denote any unintended and unexpected loss or hurt apart from its cause; and if the cause is not known the loss or hurt itself would certainly be called an accident. The word accident is also often used to denote both the cause and the effect, no attempt being made to discriminate between them.
Attorneys: A lawyer is a person who practices law, as an advocate, barrister, attorney, counselor or solicitor or chartered legal executive. Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems, or to advance the interests of those who hire lawyers to perform legal services. The role of the lawyer varies greatly across legal jurisdictions, and so it can be treated here in only the most general terms.
Corporate Business Lawyers: A corporate lawyer is also known as In-House Counsel, Staff Attorney, Deputy General Counsel, General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer. Their primary objective is to serve the interests of the corporation, not the owners of the business or the officers who run it. In addition to legal counsel, they may also be called upon to provide business advice. They may practice other areas of law concerning mergers and acquisitions, trademarks, tax law bankruptcy, employment, securities, real estate or international commercial law.
