Types of Cases We Handle In Hillsborough County
The Lopez Law Group represents clients who are dealing with a variety of legal issues in Florida. If you need a lawyer in Hillsborough County, you can count on our law firm to provide high-quality, cost-effective legal representation.
Residential Real Estate
Whether you are buying or selling a house, the process is both exciting and stressful. There are many legal hurdles that you must go through to complete the sale or purchase of a home successfully. The Lopez Law Group can assist you with a range of residential real estate matters, including closings, code compliance, lease disputes, and permits. We work throughout Hillsborough County to help buyers, sellers, renters, and landlords get the legal guidance necessary to resolve their issue.
Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate lawyers do much of the same work that residential real estate attorneys do, but with a focus on the specific issues that crop up in commercial purchases, sales, and leases. This may include land use and zoning regulations, contract disputes, real estate development law, and construction litigation. If you are involved in the commercial real estate market in Hillsborough County, our law firm is here to help.
Real Estate Closings
The closing is the last step in any real estate purchase or sale, whether the property is residential, agricultural, or commercial. A significant amount of work must be done before the closing can occur. Any errors in the process – or a failure to have the correct paperwork – can delay the closing and cost all parties money. Our Hillsborough County real estate closing attorneys will work with you to ensure that your closing goes as smoothly as possible.
Florida is an at-will state for employment, which means that employees can generally be fired for any reason at all – as long as that reason is not discriminatory. Several federal and state laws protect employees from discrimination, wage theft, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination. The Lopez Law Group represents both employees who have been the subject of wrongful employment actions as well as employers who seek guidance on complying with the law and responding to allegations made by employees.
Being charged with a crime – even if you aren’t ultimately convicted – can have a devastating impact on your life. If you find yourself in this situation, you will need a tough and intelligent criminal defense attorney. In Hillsborough County, our legal team will take a proactive approach to defending you against criminal charges. We will analyze your case and put together the strongest possible defense to protect your rights and your interests.
Slander or Libel
In the social media and internet era, it is easier than ever for someone to say something false about another person. When those false statements hurt another person’s reputation or business, it may be grounds for a defamation lawsuit. Defamation includes both slander (spoken false statements) and libel (written or published false statements). If you believe that you have been defamed, our law firm can help. Call our Hillsborough County slander and libel attorneys to learn about your options for pursuing a claim.
If you have a legal dispute with someone that is valued at $8,000 or less, you may bring the claim to Hillsborough County’s small claims court. While you are not required to hire an attorney to bring or defend a claim, it is often a good idea. A skilled lawyer can help you put together a strong claim or defense, and can make arguments, question witnesses, and introduce evidence in court. The attorneys of the Lopez Law Group have deep experience in all types of litigation, including small claims matters.
From initial formation to day-to-day operations to dissolution, running a business often requires an understanding of Florida law. Beyond legal requirements for starting and operating a business, you may also need legal advice on issues such as licensing, contract disputes, intellectual property theft, and drafting contracts. Our law firm represents corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, joint ventures, and other types of companies throughout Hillsborough County in a range of corporate law matters.
Florida’s Landlord-Tenant laws govern the relationship between landlords and tenants in our state. All parties to a lease have certain rights and obligations, such as the duty of the tenant to pay rent and the responsibility of the landlord to provide a habitable dwelling. If either party violates the lease or Florida law in some way, it is important that you understand your options to resolve the matter. In Hillsborough County, call the Lopez Law Group to learn more about how we can help you with landlord-tenant disputes.
When a person dies, their assets typically do not automatically pass onto their heirs and their debts are not paid without further action. Through probate, a deceased person’s assets are identified and gathered, their debts are paid, and their assets are distributed in a court-supervised process. In Florida, a lawyer is required for probate in most situations. In Hillsborough County, the Lopez Law Group has the experience and knowledge necessary to help make the probate process as smooth and efficient for you as possible.
Land Trust Lawyers
In Florida, individuals can hold and manage real estate jointly through a land trust. Like other types of trusts, a land trust allows a trustee to manage the trust assets (real property) for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries. Land trusts are complicated legal documents and require careful drafting to protect the interests of all parties. If you are contemplating a land trust, contact the Lopez Law Group to schedule a consultation with a member of our team.
Interstate Moving Disputes
When you move, you expect your stuff to arrive safely at your new home. Unfortunately, items are often lost, broken, or stolen in transit. In this situation, it can take a lot of work to get an answer from the moving company. In Hillsborough County, our law firm advocates for individuals and families who are dealing with interstate moving disputes. Reach out today to schedule a consultation with a seasoned moving dispute attorney.

What Our Clients Say
Mr. Lopez was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Him and the entire firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a pressing situation. Throughout my experience working with the firm, they were always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won’t have to recommend Lopez Law Group to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there’s only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!
