Business Litigation

Our business attorneys can help you handle all the legal concerns you are facing in business formation or operation. From new start-ups to established businesses in Cranberry Township, we can help you form your business (LLCs, LLPs, partnerships), dissolve your business, develop a succession plan, and resolve breach of contract matters. We can also guide you in the contract drafting process to ensure the legal language adequately protects your rights and interests as a business owner.

Estate Planning

We also provide important legal guidance for clients dealing with estate planning matters. From drafting wills to creating powers of attorney to looking at Medicaid planning, our estate planning lawyers can help you navigate the legal process of protecting and distributing your assets as you’ve dictated. Pennsylvania law offers a range of estate planning tools to watch over your current and future assets, though the process of retrieving those assets may be wrapped up in complex legal language.

James M. Herb & Associates can sit down with you to lay out all your estate planning options based on your personal goals and relationships. Who do you want to bestow certain legal powers upon? What property do you want to leave for whom? Do you have medical preferences you’d like to establish on paper? 

Alternatively, we can also help surviving family members handle the probate process, which may involve going through probate court. We are well-versed in the probate process and will do our best to ensure every beneficiary rightfully receives their property. We can also lend a legal hand as we interpret the terms of the will left behind.

Personal Injury

Personal injury lawsuits are another area of law that our firm handles for Cranberry Township clients. Our personal injury lawyers will handle every aspect of a legal claim you seek to bring against an entity responsible for your injuries. We are experienced negotiators who can help you reach a settlement before proceeding to trial, though we are nonetheless prepared to fight for your case in court. 

Generally, civil lawsuits follow these steps:

  1. Drafting and filing a legal complaint.
  2. Conducting discovery.
  3. Arguing for different motions.
  4. Engaging in settlement talks.
  5. Proceeding to trial if no settlement is reached.

We will do our best to secure fair compensation for damages. Some of the personal injury cases we would handle in Cranberry Township include but are not limited to:

  • Car and truck accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Premise liabilities
  • Construction accidents
  • Traumatic brain injury cases
  • Spinal cord injury cases
  • Wrongful death

Criminal Defense

Charged with a crime in Cranberry Township? James M. Herb & Associates is also the right firm to defend you against criminal charges. One of the most common criminal cases we take on is DUI defense, including serious DUIs that result in accidents with another vehicle and death or injury.

Recall that it is unlawful in Pennsylvania to drive or be in actual physical control of a vehicle while they have been impaired by alcohol or drugs to the extent that they cannot drive safely. Individuals can be charged with “per se” DUIs if they have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or more (.04% for commercial drivers and .02% for drivers under the age of 21). The penalties for DUI will depend on the severity of the circumstances and whether the driver has prior convictions.
