For more than 30 years, my firm’s caseload has spanned a diverse range of litigation. Read below for more information on these areas of practice.

Personal Injury

A personal injury claim, whether it involves a car or truck, a consumer product, or medical error, means any incident where a person has been injured or killed because someone or something (such as a business) was negligent. In cases where the injury results in death, this is known as “wrongful death.”

Product Liability

Manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers are responsible for harm caused by defective products they put into the marketplace. The focus must be on “safety first”, rather than on a “bottom line” mindset that puts profits before people. David Oestreicher can help you pursue a product liability claim against local, regional or even national manufacturers in product liability cases.

Business litigation & Contracts

Many clients call on Oestreicher Law as legal disputes arise in the course of their business dealings. We work with individuals and businesses to settle disputes and perform business transactions.

There are many laws and codes protecting individuals and businesses against unjust breaches of contracts. Navigating the legalities of contract language, and keeping abreast of applicable court decisions and statutes, is important in order to achieve the maximum compensation in contract disputes.
