Ultimately, we build relationships with those seeking our help and, therefore, our clients achieve their goals expediciously, without undue expenses.

Immigration

Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC offers advice and legal services in all types of U.S. citizenship and naturalization matters. This includes a practice for criminal aliens and those seeking political asylum. We assist clients with visa processing and represent them in deportation proceedings through appeals to the Bureau of Immigration Appeals and federal courts.

Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Our attorneys have experience in handling various matters, including personal injury cases, commercial disputes, consumer claims (including automobile dealer fraud, “lemon law,” and breach of warranty), as well as insurance coverage and “bad faith” actions in both state and federal courts. We specifically concentrate on the following areas:

  • Appellate

    Appellate advocacy demands unique analytical reasoning and exceptional legal writing. Focusing on state and federal court litigation, Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC provides its clients with comprehensive evaluation, strategic planning, and outstanding representation that are critically important in seeking and obtaining appellate remedies.

  • Commercial

    The realities of the contemporary market environment necessarily generate conflicts and disagreements. We represent companies and individuals in a broad range of contract disputes and other business matters. Focusing on promoting stability and avoiding litigation, our primary goal in this field is to determine, analyze, and resolve the problematic issues as quickly as possible to the satisfaction of our clients.

  • Personal Injury

    The negligence of others often results in personal injury or property damage. Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC represents accident victims in determining the identity of the responsible parties and aggressively pursues the most advantageous awards or settlements. Our attorneys offer candid advice and will not rest unless and until all avenues of recovery have been exhausted.

  • Insurance Coverage/Bad Faith

    Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC represents policyholders in disputes involving all types of insurance coverage, including general liability, professional malpractice, property, employment practices, automobile, environmental, commercial, and product liability. When the insurance carrier fails to honor its legal obligations, such as unjustifiably rejecting payment or unreasonably prolonging the investigation of the circumstances surrounding the loss, we hold them responsible.

Real Estate

We provide legal services to business and individual clients in all aspects of development, construction, leasing, acquisition and sale of residential, commercial, and industrial real estate. The firm handles a full range of real estate transactions with particular emphasis on real estate acquisition, finance, conveyance, leasing, and dispute resolution. In addition, Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC is involved in landlord-tenant disputes and litigation.

Transportation

Our attorneys have developed an expertise in handling various issues related to the transportation industry, including purchase and financing of freight carriers, taxicab medallions, limousine licenses, and other valuable certificates. We work in hand with other industry participants and represent clients before the Philadelphia Parking Authority and the Public Utility Commission.

We will take the time to review your situation and guide you through the bankruptcy process towards financial stability.

TESTIMONIALS

Everyone complains about too many lawyers....until they need one. Eric is that ONE. Period. We are lucky to know Eric as a person and as an attorney. On both fronts, Eric has been outstanding.

MARK S.

Mr. Rayz is an outstanding attorney that is responsive to the client's issues. He consistently offers advice and counsel on alternatives available and the anticipated outcomes of such decisions. I will use Mr. Rayz again in the future and would recommend him to those seeking legal counsel.

PETER R.

Lawrence assisted us in a complicated litigation. His knowledge of the rules of court was excellent and helped us achieve a very favorable result.

FRANK MAZZEO, ESQUIRE

Many people have the unfortunate need for an attorney to handle many aspects within the court system. While I have used many attorney's in the past, Lawrence has a special dedication to his clients and their needs. I would strongly recommend anyone to consult with Lawrence and his firm for making any decisions.

SETH M.

Lawrence was attentive and went beyond what I expected. His straightforward, no nonsense and attentive approach really helped and impressed me! I hired Lawrence more than once and will continue to do so in the future.
