Practice areas

Arida Legal provides legal representation and services in the following areas of practice:

 

– Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is a legal proceeding in which people who cannot pay their bills can get a fresh financial start. Filing bankruptcy immediately stops all of your creditors from seeking to collect debts from you, at least until your debts are sorted out according to the law.

– Civil Litigation

Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that seeks money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. Lawyers who practice civil litigation represent parties in trials, hearings, arbitration and mediation before administrative agencies, foreign tribunals and federal, state and local courts.

– Collection

A collection department is hired to help a company collect unpaid debts. The longer a debt remains unpaid, the less likely the creditor’s chance of recovering all monies due. By hiring a collection agency as soon as possible, a creditor can let someone else handle the frustration of sending letters, making phone calls and being ignored by a debtor. Our office is equipped with a specialized administrative and technical team, who has extensive experience in collecting debts, checks and invoices for several banks, supplying and leasing companies.

– Criminal Law

Criminal law is the principal means by which the government identifies and criminalizes behavior that is considered wrong, damaging to individuals or to society as a whole or is otherwise unacceptable. The criminal justice system is the mechanism by which action is taken to deal with those suspected of committing offenses. The criminal justice system refers to the whole process from the initial investigation of a crime through to acquittal or to conviction and sentence in the criminal courts.

– Corporate Law

Business can be undertaken in various forms. In many instances, ways of doing business are governed by law. In others, they are determined by the preferences of the parties involved, based upon a large number of business, tax and personal considerations.

Copyright applies to any expressible form of an idea or information that is substantive and discrete and fixed in a medium. Some jurisdictions also recognize “moral rights” of the creator of a work, such as the right to be credited for the work.
