Jerry has set up numerous companies and corporations and has been their respected counsel for years.

If a lawsuit is filed against you or your company, Jerry can also help. One of the most familiar types of lawsuits that are filed in the business world is a breach of contract claim. A breach in contract suit can be filed on nearly every contract, whether you planned to breach the contract or not.
Another common problem that can bring about lawsuits within the business world is the uncertainty of ownership, whether it is physical assets or intellectual property. Another example that may call for the training and practical knowledge of an accomplished business law attorney is the breaking up, or dissolution, of a business relationship. This can be an exceptionally complicated and grueling process. If done the wrong way, you could leave your business in an extremely compromised situation and your personal belongings at risk.
These important business relationships can be somewhat difficult to navigate while ensuring that you and your company’s best interests are safeguarded. Jerry will help you through all of these corporate and related dilemmas.
Jerry can also help you with your business leases, acquisition of real property, and other general real property legal matters. These types of cases are meaningful to Jerry. Jerry cares about the success of your business and will draw on his 20+ years of corporate legal work and practical knowledge to ensure your business succeeds.
We have represented many different large, medium and small sized companies and organizations in civil lawsuits. Our typical cases frequently involve breach of contract issues, from business vs. business disagreements and partnership disputes to construction and real estate.
Although never planned, partners sometimes end up in court caused by a violation of the partnership agreement or, as we have noticed in many cases, that it can also be due to malfeasance by one of the partners. Our mission in these suits is to attain what’s best for you and the value of your shares and interest in the company.
As a business owner, you already know that contracts aren’t always honored. Most of the time, the parties sort out the disagreement and continue on. However, sometimes those conflicts require a law suit. Regardless of whether you need to sue someone or your business gets sued, our main concern is to protect your assets and superior reputation. If you have already been served with a lawsuit, you only have twenty days to answer (generally). Please call me immediately, and let’s meet and assess the claims and respond timely to the lawsuit.
Jerry Morgan is a expert real estate lawyer and has represented numerous clients in real estate transactions and disputes such as breach of contract, title disputes, deed restriction enforcement, and other claims. Please contact me immediately if you have a real estate transaction or dispute and are in need of representation.
Companies can be the subject of interference in its business and contractual obligations. Swift action by a business litigation lawyer is always important to prevent irreparable harm.
Everybody might end up being a victim of fraudulent actions – from the person on the street to the largest of corporations. Fraud might be a small, unintentional misrepresentation to an outright scam. Because JDM Business Law represents both plaintiffs and defendants, we can represent you if you believe you’ve been defrauded or if you have actually been accused of fraud.
Non-Compete legal agreements are usually subject to strict scrutiny by courts or arbitrators. If you are a company looking to enforce a covenant not to compete agreement, you will need to bring a claim for immediate enforcement.
Arbitration is very similar to litigation, but rather than a judge, you’ll have an arbitrator. In the place of a jury, you have an arbitrator. In the place of an appeal post trial, you have the arbitration. In an arbitration situation case research, preparation and aggressive representation are extremely important. Without a jury or an appeal right, the case and presentation are key. There is only one possibility to succeed. JDM Business Law can help you through the process.
JDM Business Law provides the most impressive value guidance and legal services to members within the construction business industry. We serve contractors, subcontractors, and owners, with a commitment to developing a in-depth knowledge of the construction process and the companies involved in it.
Jerry has practiced construction law for over twenty years, both as a litigator and in transaction work. We have practical experiences in building and construction, which supports our clients at any phase of the construction job, from beginning through the project closeout.
Construction lawyers usually support clients in all areas of the business of building and construction. We support our clients by drafting and negotiating legal agreements for a number of project delivery systems. We can also help to create subcontractor programs that aid in project management and in insurance specific provisions and programs.
Though we can litigate construction claim disagreements, JDM Business Law strives to minimize disputes by focusing on risk management, planning, early intervention, claims prevention, and avoidance practices. When conflicts do occur, we are here to help support with working out contentious problems before they result in in drawn-out lawsuits. When claims can’t be prevented, our attorneys will use their expertise in mediation, arbitration, and litigation to prosecute and defend construction claims on your behalf.
If you are attempting to start or expand your business, you will more than likely purchase or lease new land or space. The agreements concerning real estate can be complicated, especially when a lender is involved. They involve large amounts of money, necessitate multi-party involvement, and require key due diligence into the stability of the property and transaction. Because of the large investment and substantial research required in commercial property acquisitions, an expert real estate attorney can both save you time and money. Jerry Morgan is an experienced real estate attorney who can assist you through the overall real estate process.
If you are leasing property, the agreement between the landlord and tenant controls the relationship for years to come. Most leases will need personal guarantees of the principals. If you do not fully understand all these provisions, you may very well be agreeing to conditions that you do want for the total period of the lease term. Jerry Morgan can help you navigate sophisticated commercial leases and would be delighted to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have about your lease.
As long as there has been real estate contracts, there are real estate disputes. JDM Business Law can help you in all facets of the disputes and conflicts that evolve from a real estate contract. Buyer/Seller, Landlord/Tenant, Lender/Borrower, Title Insured/Title Insurer, property boundary, zoning violations, etc. There are few things more personal, but more public, than real estate. When a dispute occurs, we can help.
JDM Business Law’s goal is to represent you in the most comprehensive, legally accurate, and responsive manner possible. With JDM Business Law, we hope to build a long-lasting, trusting attorney client relationship and to be your trusted legal advisor.
We work with business and individuals on corporate, real estate, construction and civil litigation matters.
Jerry Morgan will work on your case.
Jerry Morgan will advise you on each possible business structure and the benefits and negatives of each. Most small businesses today utilize a limited liability company, but some choose corporations, with or without an S election through the IRS. In addition, professionals, such as doctors, accountants, real estate agents, are required to form professional corporations or companies for their professions. Again, JDM Business Law will work with you to decide the best option for you.
Forming a corporation or company is a great way to minimize your risk. Reason being: if everything goes wrong and if the company suffers, only the money you’ve previously invested in the company can be lost. No personal assets are at risk.
Selecting a business name is an important and personal name. Once you select the name you desire, we will work together to determine if the name has been used previously, is it trademarked, is it already being used by a different company or corporation in Arizona, is a website available for the name, etc.
We will absolutely work together to verify the legal authenticity of your company and if any issues exist, we will work together to solve them.
JDM Business Law’s goal is to achieve your goal. Most clients desire to avoid conflict through meeting with the opposing party and coming to a win/win compromised solution. However, some clients do not believe that a successful compromise has been reached. In that case, we will litigate or arbitrate the dispute until conclusion.
We will always get back to you that day or by the next day.
JDM Business Law bills clients through a variety of options: fixed base fee, contingency fee, or an hourly fee. Please call Jerry Morgan to discuss your case and to discuss the correct fee system for you.
