The Law Office of James Tobia, LLC is dedicated to providing efficient, cost-effective and common sense representation of businesses and individuals in all facets of legal representation. We take pride in representing businesses at every stage of commercial existence, starting with formation. We routinely defend commercial and individual clients who have been sued in Delaware state and federal courts, including protecting vendors to now bankrupt companies in defense of preference actions in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, and we represent individuals in personal matters such as individual investments in business entities, contract formation, asset protection, domestic relations, family law and estate planning. We pride ourselves on serving our clients' long-term interests while responding to their most pressing short-term concerns all the while understanding how the costs of legal representation affect our client's decisions. We want to develop and foster a long lasting relationship as a trusted advisor to our clients.
Example of the clients we frequently represent include:
• Small business that worked closely with a company that has now filed for bankruptcy protection. These clients often have many needs, including that they may be owed money by the bankrupt Debtor, they may have contracts or leases implicated by the Bankruptcy, and they may be sued by the Debtor eventually. That’s right, your significant client has gone out of business, your bills have not been paid in full, and eventually they are going to sue you to try to recover the partial payments you did receive!
• Out of state businesses and individuals, through their primary and often long time home-state lawyers, providing Delaware counsel services to partner with that out of state counsel, providing access to the Delaware courts.
• Out of state individuals who suffered personal injury in dealings with a company that has now filed for bankruptcy protection and need help getting permission to seek recovery against available insurance policies.
• Individuals and small businesses needing assistance with contracts and small business transactions, including formation.
• Family law clients who want to understand their rights and the legal process. Frequently, we represent clients who are trying to work things out with their spouse or former spouse and the client needs to understand what will happen if they cannot or need some information in order to evaluate an offer made by the opposing party.
