Corporate Law

MAF  Lawyers deals with the formation and operation of corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships. Because corporate law is fundamentelly intertwined with commercial and contract law, it is imperative that any business entity has adequate legal counsel.

Residential Lending

We regularly provide guidance to lending institutions in documenting and securing various commercial and residential loan transactions including short sales, foreclosure, and real estate owned (REO). We prepare and negotiate commitment letters and engagement letters, as well as provide review of corporate documents. We see to it that our clients have structured their loans properly and are adequately protected. We regularly assist in financing that is secured with real estate, personal property, agricultural assets, accounts and securities.

Buying a house is the everybody dream. For many people, this will also be the largest financial transaction of their lives. It may even be some client's first encounter with an attorney.

Commercial Lending

Our team provides counsel to several prominent financial institutions.

Because we take the time to learn our clients’ businesses, we develop an understanding of the strategies and objectives needed to properly represent both the lending client and its customers.

Wills, Trusts and Estates

An estate planning attorney ensures that in the event of incapacity or death, your financial and personal matters are handled responsibly and in accordance with your objectives at the lowest possible financial and emotional cost. If your estate plan is not well conceived and up-to-date, then the laws of Brazil  may determine how your assets will be distributed. Without adequate planning, the estate can be subject to unnecessarily high estate and income taxes and other costs. Without proper Medicaid planning, assets may be exhausted to pay for long-term care costs and other expenses. The MAF counsels clients in organizing and structuring their estates including preparing and reviewing wills, trusts and other estate planning tools. We counsel Brazilian Federal,State and Municipal executors and trustees on fiduciary duties, we serve as a trustee or estate administrator and we help estate executors and administrators navigate complex probate laws, as well as present matters before the surrogate’s court. Our goal is to ensure that our clients' needs, no matter how big or small, are met.

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation involves business disputes. Business law is very comprehensive, and often includes negotiations, intellectual property protection, and other business matters that do not involve a conflict. Despite these differences, the terms commercial litigation law and business litigation law are often used interchangeably. While the focus is solely on business disputes, a wide range of litigation matters are included, such as business torts, commercial real estate, debt collection, and contract law. Parties in dispute could include past employees, competitors, vendors, suppliers, and other businesses. These types of cases often involve claims of fraud, employee contract disputes, and unfair competitive practices. The Marino Law Group is well-qualified to handle your business litigation matters for you. Let our knowledge and experience add value to your business.

Criminal Law Services
Our criminal practice focuses on keeping our clients (Foreign and Local) out of jail and keeping your criminal record clear. There are lawyers for every conceivable legal problem. However, if you are facing criminal charges, or you are under investigation, your legal situation is totally different than any other legal problem because it carries a potential jail sentence and/or criminal record which could be a part of your life forever.
