Reed K. Hamzeh
Hamzeh Law is committed to staffing your case with the necessary number of the
finest attorneys to efficiently, yet, effectively handle your case based upon
its complexities and needs. In addition, if your case involves complicated legal issues in
specialized practice areas, we are able to consult with specialized counsel with whom we
have previously worked and, if necessary, can associate them into a case to assure that
you receive the best representation possible at all times. As such, no case is too
complicated or large for us to handle.
Mr. Hamzeh is the principal of the firm. He has been practicing
law for over eleven years and has a broad range of experience in a
multitude of practice areas. He has handled cases from inception
through appeal in state and federal courts. Mr. Hamzeh believes
strongly in lawsuit prevention and has often counseled clients to
diffuse or settle conflicts prior to having them result in unnecessary
litigation. "Most attorneys are happy to exasperate a conflict with
the hopes of starting litigation so they can line their pockets with
their client's hard earned money. This self-motivated behavior is
unethical and contrary to the client's best interests. In reality, many
conflicts can be resolved through aggressive, yet reasonable, negotiation. But if your case
does require litigation, we aggressively prepare a detailed strategy with the mind set of
going to trial. I relish the opportunity to present a case before a judge or jury."
Mr. Hamzeh has repeatedly devised trial strategies at the outset of cases and produced
either favorable settlements or verdicts. Mr. Hamzeh's practice areas include trusts, conservatorships, guardianships, probate administration and litigation and complex business litigation, consisting of breach of contract, fraud, employment, entertainment, intellectual property and products liability as well as civil rights and personal injury.
Mr. Hamzeh views each case as though it were his own and invites his clients to contact him any time they have questions or concerns.
