Diemert & Associates Legal Practice Areas
For clients needing the services of experienced trial attorneys, the firm’s civil litigation practice covers a broad range of legal disputes which arise in many of our practice areas, including but not limited to personal injury, employment, construction, corporate, real estate, zoning, municipal and landlord-tenant.
The extensive experience of having represented numerous municipalities, public agencies, public officials and public employees throughout the years has given the firm a distinct edge in representing public entities’ and private clients’ legal matters involving cities, villages and townships throughout the state, such as initiative petitions, taxpayer lawsuits, public records law, land use, zoning and building compliance, and administrative appeals.
Safety Force Employment Law, Collective Bargaining, and Litigation
We are proud of our long history of providing trusted legal representation in a variety of ways to Northeast Ohio’s dedicated firefighters, police officers, and their safety force unions. This includes bargaining unit certifications, initial and successor collective bargaining negotiations, contract and policy grievances, unfair labor practices, promotional disputes, civil service litigation, and 24/7 emergency legal assistance to law enforcement officers involved in on-duty use of force incidents.
Corporate and Business Law and Litigation
Our corporate and business practice focuses on providing client-focused and result-oriented legal counsel to meet the needs of businesses of all varieties, whether that be drafting articles of incorporation, operating agreements and other corporate documents, reviewing contracts and proposals, evaluating risks and exposures, and providing legal opinions on compliance matters and other legal issues.
Personal Injury: Plaintiff
Unlike the volume-based practices advertised on TV, radio, and highway billboards, our personal injury practice provides the personal attention and advocacy clients should seek when they suffer personal injury and incur medical bills, pain, suffering, and other damages due to the fault of another.
Land Use and Zoning
Experienced in handling property development and land use matters, our goal is to assist clients in achieving the desired outcome for their interest in the development or use of property while also navigating the governmental permit and approval process.
Estate Planning and Probate
We endeavor to both assist individuals and families in protecting their hard-earned assets and help ease the burden on surviving loved ones. This includes ensuring that our clients’ wishes survive their incapacity or death through careful drafting of wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents, avoiding the probate process when possible, and utilizing it when necessary.
Real Estate Transactions
We provide the trusted advice necessary to facilitate the sale, purchase, lease or other transfer of land, buildings, natural resources, and other property, both residential and commercial. We expertly handle all aspects of the dealings and transactions, having guided more than $50 million in transactions the past few years alone.
