THE GLASSMAN LAW GROUP
Practice Areas

 MEDICAL MALPRACTICE [TOP]

Medical malpractice causes hundreds of thousands of injuries and deaths in the United States each year. The term medical malpractice refers to a physician’s failure, either due to negligence, or error, to provide a patient with the required standard of care, thus causing a patient to suffer harm. At The Glassman Law Group, experienced medical malpractice attorneys have routinely and successfully recovered damages for our clients in order to cover financial losses such as past and future medical bills, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and more.

The attorneys at The Glassman Law Group are expert in determining the validity of a potential malpractice case. Please contact us for a consultation with a caring and experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can help you protect your legal rights and maximize your compensation.

 PERSONAL INJURY [TOP]

A serious injury can change your life, as well the lives of your loved ones. The Glassman Law Group represents individuals, and in many instances, the families of those who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of others. In addition to helping our clients recover their medical and related economic losses, we also pursue monetary awards sufficient to provide our clients with long-term care, as well as financial stability. While this process often involves fighting well-funded defendants and wealthy corporations, The Glassman Law Group has the resources and resolve necessary to achieve outstanding results.

We also understand what it takes to achieve significant recoveries for non-economic damages, such as mental anguish and pain and suffering. Moreover, we work closely with our clients from the initial fact-finding stages of their case through the time of trial. During the litigation process, our skilled trial attorneys carefully consider a variety of options, such as mediation and arbitration, in an effort to amicably settle disputes. When settlement is not an option, our trial attorneys will aggressively pursue your rights at trial.

If you have been seriously injured due to the negligence of another, we urge you to contact us for a free consultation and evaluation of your case.

 WRONGFUL DEATH [TOP]

Compassion, understanding, and excellence are some of the traits that a person should look for in a wrongful death lawyer. These traits and more are what make the attorneys at The Glassman Law Group the accomplished and respected wrongful death attorneys they are.

Every year loved ones across the United States grieve the loss of family members that die as the result of wrongful death. Wrongful death is a type of personal injury which may be caused by many unfortunate accidents, including medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and auto accidents.

The unexpected passing of a loved one may leave family members with many expenses, such as hospital bills, and funeral and burial costs. You may be able to receive maximum compensation for these expenses along with the compensation of your loved ones lost wages and the loss of your loved one's companionship.

 NURSING HOME ABUSE [TOP]

Residents of nursing homes and other assisted care facilities can suffer severe injuries as the result of neglect, negligence or even abuse. These cases require special attention in that frequently the injured person has difficulty speaking for himself or herself. We have much experience in handling these cases. Our experts help us to identify the cause of injuries and the standards of care that have been breached. Contact us if you believe that a loved one has been harmed in this type of setting.

 REAL ESTATE [TOP]

The Glassman Law Group has represented our clients in connection with their acquisition, financing, and leasing of commercial and residential real estate.

For many of our clients, buying or selling a home will be one of the most important business transactions they will ever take part in. Despite the risks, most people make or accept an offer on a home without first consulting with a qualified real estate attorney. We urge you to not make the same mistake.

There are hundreds of problems that can arise in a so-called “simple” real estate transaction. For instance, there may be tax or mechanics liens against the property, as well as judgments against the seller. Furthermore, a new certificate of occupancy may be required, or the purchaser may have difficulty obtaining financing. Even if financing is obtained, the purchaser may be overwhelmed by “hidden” costs related to the transaction.

Many of these problems can be avoided simply by consulting with an attorney. We at The Glassman Law Group can help you avoid these common real estate pitfalls. Give us a call for a free consultation and estimated closing cost computation.

 ESTATE PLANNING [TOP]

The current tax law climate and economic conditions have placed a high premium on carefully conceived estate plans. Our principal objective is to maximize the value received by our clients' chosen beneficiaries and minimize taxes and estate administration costs. An up-to-date Last Will and Testament, reflecting both the client's situation and relevant legal considerations is the cornerstone of every estate plan. However, estate planning entails more than drafting a Will. Pre-marital and post-marital contracts, insurance trusts, “generation skipping” trusts, marital deduction planning and charitable foundations may also be created.

No matter what your current situation is, having a comprehensive estate plan will ensure that no matter what happens, your property will be protected, your wishes will be honored, and most of all your loved ones will be provided for. A comprehensive estate plan can ensure all that you have worked for will be protected. No matter how large or small your estate, having something as simple as a Will, for example, can prevent your property from being overtaxed and most importantly ensure that your loved ones are provided for.
