Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury lawsuits are a type of civil litigation brought when one private party is responsible for the harm of another. A civil litigation attorney or personal injury attorney specializes in legal disputes, such as those arising out of a car accident, slip and fall, breach of contract, or a real estate dispute. These are also referred to as “tort law,” where the injured party can seek monetary damages for pain and suffering, lost wages or earnings, medical expenses, and additional costs incurred as a result of the other party’s failure to fulfill certain promises.

Divorce & Family Law Attorney

The disruption of a family unit when one party decides to end a marriage by divorce is not limited to the emotional trauma that often occurs. Most often, serious financial difficulties arise as well. Each family law attorney at Carter DeYoung is prepared to assist through the hardship that arises during divorce proceedings and obtain a fair result from the court in dealing with these tough financial matters. Whether it be child support or custody, alimony (spousal support), or extreme family issues involving disputes, restraining orders, and domestic abuse, the lawyers at Carter DeYoung have decades of service before the local Cape Cod Family Court and vast experience in obtaining fair court orders for the support of children under the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines.

Criminal Defense Attorney

A criminal defense attorney deals with matters that involve any type of crime, whether it’s a felony or misdemeanor, and ranges from OUI/DUI and drug-related offenses to assault, theft, breaking and entering, rape, and murder.

Wills, Trusts, & Estate Planning Attorney

The high number of retirees and elders in the Cape and Islands region requires the need for legal guidance dealing with complex situations and laws governing a range of matters. Although there are several, and each situation is unique, legal assistance may include Medicare and Medicaid applications, planning and distribution of assets, long-term care insurance, or legal help regarding assisted living or nursing home decisions. Together or mutually exclusively, wills, trusts, estate planning, and administration, or trust litigation disputes also play a role where an experienced estate planning attorney is a necessity.
