What alternatives do you have to litigation over a dispute?

Americans have long been accused of being overly litigious -- but almost nobody really wants a dispute to wind up in court if they can avoid it. Whether it's a dispute with a neighbor over a boundary line or a problem with a business partner, most people will try to work things out on their own before they turn to a lawyer.

The warning signs of a breach of fiduciary duty

Certain relationships create a legal obligation, or fiduciary duty, that requires one party to act solely in the best interests of the other without regard to their own interests. A fiduciary duty can exist between a trustee and the beneficiaries of the trust, a lawyer and their client and an investment advisor and their investors, among others. It can even exist between company officers and their corporations and partners and their partnerships.

High property taxes? Check the real value of your property

As someone who owns a home, you were shocked when you received your latest bill for your property taxes. It seemed very high, and you weren't sure where the number was coming from. Your home's value doesn't seem like it's enough to justify the taxes.

Excessive property tax assessments could be open to challenge

Owners of both residential or commercial real estate in Georgia have a strong interest in making sure that their property tax bills represent a fair assessment. Your tax bill could be inflated for a number of reasons. A simple clerical error at a taxing agency could cost you thousands of dollars. Other issues that might skew your assessment toward a higher value include an out-of-date market analysis or improper calculations by a taxing authority.
