Civil Rights

Civil Rights actions may be brought against a government employee when they are acting in their official capacity and cause the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the United States Constitution and laws. At the Galloway Law Firm of Ponte Vedra Beach, P.L.L.C., we have represented clients in civil rights actions brought against government officials who allegedly abused their positions to the detriment of others. Our firm always does a thorough review of the official reports and sometimes uses the services of experts and investigators.  A Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) is sometimes necessary to retrieve copies of pertinent information and documentation from state and federal agencies.     

Personal Injury

Being injured because of someone else's negligence can be a frightening experience. Unfortunately, the negligent party does not always admit fault and may even downplay the damages that they have caused. At the Galloway Law Firm of Ponte Vedra Beach, P.L.L.C., we have experience with personal injury actions and we understand how to address these situations. Generally, we begin by reviewing the facts, drafting a letter of representation, and requesting the preservation of evidence as permitted by the Florida statutes. Should the need to file a lawsuit occur, then the necessary documentation will have already been prepared and reviewed. The opinion of medical experts will usually be obtained prior to filing a lawsuit. 

Business Disputes

A business dispute may arise when two parties disagree in the correct course of action to take under a written contract or similar agreement.

Should the need arise, we are prepared to litigate a business dispute at a civil trial. If a judgment is awarded, then our firm can help our clients will the post judgment process.
