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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

The firm handles a full range of real estate transactions with particular emphasis on real estate acquisition, finance, conveyance, leasing, and dispute resolution.
