Small and medium size enterprises, those with less than 500 employees, account for 52 percent of all U.S. workers according to the Small Business Administration. Some 19.6 million Americans work for companies employing fewer than 20 workers, and 18.4 million work for enterprises employing between 10 and 99 workers.
These small and medium size enterprises face unique challenges in the formation and operation of their companies. All too often these businesses forgo the involvement of legal counsel in the formation of contracts and leases, procuring insurance, and dealing with employment issues due to the anticipated costs.
In an effort to help small and medium size enterprises minimize their litigation risks and the associated costs, Mr. Jones assists these businesses in navigating the issues faced in the complicated, regulated, and competitive modern business environment. His practice places emphasis on providing clients with ready access to legal advice designed to prevent litigation, minimize conflict, and limit costs. Mr. Jones works with clients in all aspects of their operations including: 1) reviewing insurance coverage before claims are necessary to ensure the proper coverage has been purchased; 2) assisting in the preparation of employee guidelines and standards to protect the employer; 3) preparing and reviewing contracts entered by clients; and 4) providing sound advice on a range of regulatory and legal issues faced by small and medium sized enterprises.
In the event litigation becomes necessary, Mr. Jones represents clients in business litigation ranging from collection issues, to employment law matters, to insurance coverage matters, to protecting intellectual property.
Personal Injury Litigation
Mr. Jones understands that accidents happen. However, if your accident results in a serious injury, and someone else is responsible for it, then he or she should also be responsible for helping you recover from it.
If you have been seriously injured, or your family has lost a loved one as a result of the negligent actions of another person or company, you may have a legal case against them. In considering an attorney to represent your case, it is important to choose one who has your best interests in mind—physical and financial—and will work to get the legal remedies you deserve.
The Law Office of Andreas I. Jones evaluates all types of serious accident claims resulting in personal injury or death, and provides
free consultation to victims of:
Poor customer service is prevalent in business today. However, there are situations when the conduct of companies goes beyond just poor customer service. Increasingly consumers are becoming the victims of companies that fail to provide quality products and services despite being paid to do so. If this has happened, you should know that you do not have to accept this conduct from companies you trusted to complete requested work on your home or automobile or from which you purchased goods or services. Mr. Jones represents Texas consumers who have been victimized by the misdeeds of companies and service providers. Additionally, Mr. Jones defends individuals in credit card collection suits and automobile deficiency suits.
Many consumers find themselves in communication with debt collection agents; however, few consumers know that while debt collectors have a right to seek payment they cannot make harassing phone calls, engage in deceptive practices, act abusively or in a threatening manner, or report false information about you to the credit bureaus. Additionally, you have a right to dispute your debts and be treated fairly in any debt collection action to ensure you only pay what you rightfully owe. For this reason, Mr. Jones pursues claims on behalf of Texas consumers against debt collectors for violations of the Texas Debt Collection Practices Act.
Home ownership stands as one of the enduring symbols of the American Dream. However, some homeowners lose their most valuable
asset due to the actions of mortgage companies which appear unable or unwilling to work with homeowners resulting in wrongful
foreclosure. Wrongful foreclosures are often times due to mismanagement of escrow accounts and insurance payments, misapplication
of payments, and failure to apply payments in a timely and accurate manner. These issues result in excessive and erroneous
demands for payment on homeowners. These issues escalate due to the confusion and mistakes caused by the maze of departments
and phone personnel in the modern mortgage service industry. Mr. Jones represents Texas homeowners in wrongful foreclosure
cases and has prevailed in litigation against mortgage and banking giants such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Washington
Mutual, and GMAC.
