Securities And Investment Fraud Litigation
We represent individual shareholders, partners, members of limited liability companies and investors in a variety of securities and investment disputes. We provide aggressive representation to the victims of securities fraud throughout Georgia, handling cases in both state and federal courts, and in arbitration before the American Arbitration Association and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority on behalf of accredited and non-accredited investors. If you or others like you have lost significant amounts of money in an investment deal that did not pan out, it may not have been a matter of chance. You can trust our skilled attorneys to thoroughly investigate your situation and aggressively go after the perpetrators of securities fraud and investment schemes. We have a proven record of helping individuals and classes of individuals fight investment fraud.
We have represented publicly-traded companies, small businesses, and individual policy holders in suits involving high-stakes coverage disputes, declaratory judgment actions and bad faith. When insurance companies do not honor their obligations under the law, we help our clients hold them to account.
Catastrophic Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
We represent individuals in a variety of catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death and negligence cases. We represent people badly injured or killed in automobile, motorcycle and trucking accidents. We also represent plaintiffs in slip and fall, premises liability and product liability cases. Unlike many plaintiffs’ firms, we are not afraid to file suit and take a case to trial. And we have a proven track record of success. Most of our personal injury referrals come from other lawyers, which says a lot about our reputation and commitment to our clients.
Electronic Funds Transfer Act (EFTA) / Consumer Banking Disputes
The EFTA was enacted to protect the rights of consumers and establish the duties and responsibilities of financial institutions that electronically transfer funds. Our firm has represented various consumers in disputes with their banks and lending institutions. We have successfully litigated cases in federal court concerning violations of the EFTA and Uniform Commercial Code. We have also defended small business owners in collection cases and helped avoid personal liability on commercial loans and leases.
Legal Malpractice / Professional Negligence Cases
Maintaining the integrity of the legal profession is a responsibility of all lawyers. At Hungeling Rubenfield Law, we have represented lawyers and their former clients in legal malpractice cases in federal and state court and in disciplinary matters before the State Bar of Georgia. We have successfully defended lawyers and law firms and achieved positive results for individuals harmed by professional misconduct. We have a proven record of success in achieving multiple seven figure settlements and judgments in professional malpractice cases. We have also represented clients in other professional negligence matters, including engineering malpractice, accounting malpractice, insurance-broker malpractice and medical malpractice.
Corporate Governance And Small Business Representation
We routinely assist clients with business “divorces” and shareholder conflicts and provide legal counsel and advice to small business owners and their officers and directors regarding a variety of legal matters. We can provide practical advice regarding corporate governance because we are experienced litigating issues including breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of corporate opportunity, mismanagement, corporate dissolutions, derivative claims, corporate records inspection and corporate waste. We have handled these issues for corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and trusts.
