Helping You With All Your Legal Needs

At Magee, Zeringue & Richardson, Attorneys at Law, we know we have done our job well if our clients return to us for the legal issues they face throughout their lives. Whether you are considering divorce, have been arrested for DWI, have been injured in an accident, or have another legal concern, our attorneys can advise you on the law applicable to your situation.

As lawyers and mediators, we have the knowledge and resources to handle a wide range of cases, including:

  • Administrative law: Administrative law addresses the procedures and decisions of an administrative body created by the government. Our attorneys are prepared to help you understand the administrative law associated with your situation and litigate any disputes.
  • Business law and litigation: We have significant experience helping both create local businesses — including choosing which business entity best suits your needs — and litigating any business disputes that arise now or in the future.
  • Communications law: Communications law addresses claims of defamation. If someone printed or said something about you that was harmful to your reputation, we can explain the law of defamation to you, and advise you on whether you have grounds to file suit.
  • Construction law: We have extensive experience in litigating construction law cases, including cases involving construction contract disputes, zoning disputes, easements, covenants, building permits, and other issues involved in building a home or business.
  • Contract law: We can draft contracts that will help you avoid litigation at a later date, review contracts to identify potential issues, or assist you in litigating a case if you find yourself in the midst of a contract dispute.
  • Criminal defense: We defend people facing a number of charges, from DUI to felony drug crimes. We'll work to get your charges lowered or dropped, if possible.
  • Divorce and family law: Whether you are going through a divorce, facing a child custody dispute, or need an attorney to help with your adoption, we have the knowledge and ability to take on even the most complex family law cases.
  • Firearm trusts: Firearm trusts are designed to hold ownership of firearms and make it easier to transfer and identify that ownership. If you own weapons and are interested in creating a gun trust, we can help.
  • Insurance disputes: We can help you negotiate and/or litigate disputes with your insurance company resulting from a property damage claim, fire, flood, or other natural disaster.
  • Personal injury law: We'll be your advocate after a serious injury, taking a hands-on approach to help you get just compensation.
  • Property law: We have experience in boundary disputes, petitory actions, possessory actions, and property litigation.
  • Real estate: Whether you are creating a new Homeowners Association, need a residential/commercial lease drafted, or need an attorney for a simple closing, we can help you.
  • Wills, successions and estates: Having a competent and efficient attorney to help you settle your loved one's estate or prepare for your own passing makes the process much easier.
