Dispute Resolution & Litigation

Let us worry about your legal matter so that you can focus on doing what you do best – growing your business.

Conflict Resolution Without Litigation

At Portuondo Law Firm, we understand that not every issue has to be taken to court.  Where many lawyers are quick to file suit, attorney Marisa Portuondo understands that litigation is not always the best option for her clients.  We are a resolution-focused law firm. Our goal is not to make the most money we can off of our clients and their issues. Instead, we strive to resolve your issue as quickly and inexpensively as possible, while still achieving a great result. We believe in cultivating lasting relationships with our clients – your satisfaction is our primary motivation.  

The best time to hire a lawyer is before a lawsuit is filed.  With this goal in mind, we offer many options to litigation:

  • Pre-suit Negotiations
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration

Sometimes the other side is not open to negotiation, is not taking the dispute seriously, or our client needs to file suit immediately. On these occasions, the Firm stands ready to aggressively represent its clients in litigation. Attorney Portuondo has been a litigator her entire career and has a highly successful track record prevailing on behalf of her clients. She has an especially strong record of settling matters without the need for a costly and time-consuming trial. When a matter simply cannot be resolved and must go to trial, we work with a powerhouse of experienced attorneys who assist in your representation at trial.

Construction Disputes

Construction professionals and trade workers – we haven’t forgotten about you! Attorney Portuondo has years of experience handling construction disputes. As business owners, not only will you benefit from all the same services we offer to our other business clients, we also offer guidance and document preparation related to construction issues. These are just a few of the services we offer:

  • Preparation of Notice to Owner
  • Notices of Non-Payment
  • Preparation and Recording of Liens
  • Foreclosure of Liens
  • Defense against Fraudulent Lien Claims
  • Presuit Conflict Resolution
  • Litigation

NOTE: At Portuondo Law Firm, we pride ourselves on working with licensed contractors. While we serve handymen and laborers who perform work that does not require a license, we do not provide legal services to unlicensed contractors performing work which requires a license under Florida law. 

The MANY Reasons Why Unlicensed Contracting is a Bad Idea

Whether your dispute is being handled presuit or we are deep into litigation, we understand how stressful disputes can be for our clients. Our motto is to let us worry about your legal matter so that you can move on with your life and do what you do best… grow your business.
