The Better Choice
A&A is a litigation firm. We represent clients on cases ranging from simple, to the most complex. Our experience in a wide range of matters allows us to guide our clients to the best and most efficient results.
General & Collections
A&A has litigated a wide range of business disputes between companies and their clients/customers, vendors, rivals, employees, contractors, or even between business partners. We have litigated matters involving breaches of contracts, freezing out partners, fraudulent concealment of profits, insurance coverage, intellectual property disputes, wage and hour violations, unfair business practices, and much more. A&A has also developed a focus over the years on collection of debts owed between businesses, including aggressive pursuit of debts both pre-and-post-judgment.
Disability Rights Litigation
Advice and Litigation
A&A advises many of its clients, including shopping centers, commercial landlords, restaurants, gas stations, and other small businesses, regarding how to comply with various disability rights laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") and California's Unruh Act. Most businesses do not know they are violating these laws. By the time A&A is contacted it is often too late. A&A can provide invaluable advice in how to navigate a disability rights lawsuit most efficiently, achieving compliance, while paying the least amount possible to do so. A&A will also occasionally represent plaintiffs in certain cases.
Given the choice, most people would take health over wealth. Sometimes, unfortunately, others make those choices for us, either intentionally, or through carelessness, causing us physical harm. When that happens, we should not be saddled with the cost, burden, and pain of an injury that was not our fault. However, most of these cases involve defendants and insurance companies that will fight tooth and nail to reimburse you as little money as possible, especially without a lawyer. A&A can maximize your recovery. A&A has handled personal injury cases including car accidents, falls (slip and trip), bus accidents, elder abuse, and more.
