Types of Cases We Handle
The Lopez Law Group has experience in a number of different practice areas. If you have a legal issue in Manatee County, we will help you understand your rights and options.
Residential Real Estate
Buying or selling a home can be both exciting and stressful. Our law firm assists clients with matters related to real estate transactions, including title examinations and residential real estate closings. We also represent homeowners with other Manatee County legal issues, such as HOA disputes. If you need code enforcement violation help, you can count on the Lopez Law Group.
Commercial Real Estate
Whether you are buying, selling, or leasing a piece of commercial real estate in Manatee County, you will need skilled legal counsel. The Lopez Law Group works with commercial landlords and tenants, investors, contractors, and developers. We can assist with both transactional issues, such as water rights transfers and acquisitions, as well as litigation related to construction issues, property titles, and related matters.
Real Estate Closings
Buying or selling real estate can be a lengthy, complicated process. The closing is the final step, where all interested parties meet to review and execute documents and the title to the property is transferred. Our law firm represents both buyers and sellers in residential and commercial real estate closings. We can help you with every aspect of the process, from negotiating a contract to performing a title examination to the final recording of the deed and disbursement of funds.
Although Florida is an at-will state when it comes to employment, workers still have certain protections under both state and federal law. For example, Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects against discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, and/or national origin. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides further protections for people with disabilities. Our law firm counsels Manatee County employers on how to comply with these and other laws. We also represent employees who have been subjected to unfair or illegal employment practices.
If you have been charged with a crime in Manatee County, you will need a skilled criminal defense attorney. Even a misdemeanor conviction for an offense like driving under the influence (DUI) can have serious, long-lasting repercussions. If you are facing DUI charges or any other criminal charge, reach out to the Lopez Law Group to talk to a DUI lawyer about your case.
Slander or Libel
In the age of the internet, it has become easier than ever for someone to say something false – and potentially ruinous – about other people or a business. This is known as defamation: a false statement that injures another person. It may include spoken false statements (slander) or written false statements (libel), which may be published in traditional media or online.
If you have been the victim of slander or libel, we can help. Our Manatee County defamation lawyers will fight to protect your reputation.
The Manatee County small claims court handles disputes involving sums of $8,000 or less.
Depending on your situation, you may want to file a small claims court case – or may need to defend against a case filed against you. The Lopez Law Group can help you achieve a favorable resolution to your matter.
Business law is a complex, broad area practice area. Our law firm has experience representing businesses in everything from corporation formation to contract disputes to collections. We can also assist with corporate governance and related matters. To learn more, give the Lopez Law Group a call to talk to a top Manatee County corporate law attorney.
In Florida, the Landlord-Tenant Law applies to both commercial and residential leases. Our law firm can assist both landlords and tenants with a variety of issues related to rentals, from lease violations to security deposits to evictions.
Probate is the legal process through which a Manatee County court supervises the payment of debts and the collection and distribution of assets after a person dies. Probate can be time-consuming and expensive, but it is required in Florida for most estates. It may be possible to minimize probate with effective estate planning assistance. If you are thinking about your estate plans or need help managing an estate after a loved one dies, give our law offices a call to learn more about our services.
Land Trust Lawyers
A land trust is a special type of Florida trust that can be used for parties to manage, operate, and hold legal title to real property. Like other types of trusts, a land trust is a legal entity that is managed by a trustee for the benefit of named beneficiaries. Land trusts can be complex, and require the guidance of an experienced real estate lawyer. In Manatee County, call the Lopez Law Group to schedule a consultation with a Florida land trust lawyer.
Interstate Moving Disputes
When a moving company loses, damages, or even steals your property during the move, you may not know what your rights or options are for compensation. In some cases, you may not even be able to get a hold of the company to get answers about where your property is. These cases can be difficult to navigate without the help of a Manatee County interstate moving dispute attorney. Contact the Lopez Law Firm today to learn more about our services.

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!
