With over 30 years of practical experience in the practice of law, Michael J. Eyre works to achieve favorable outcomes and excellent results in resolving his clients' legal dispute. Mr. Eyre's areas of expertise include:
When negligent or wrongful conduct causes injury to another, the law allows the injured party to recover compensation for the damage done. Recoverable damages include property damages, present and future medical expenses, present and future lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress. Recovering this compensation, however, often requires filing a lawsuit, which calls for the injured party to prove every aspect of the case, including the facts of the accident and the other party's responsibility, and to prove the nature and extent of the injury and justify the amount of damages sought.
A personal injury lawsuit is often vigorously defended by the insurance company, which goes to great lengths to pay as little as possible on a claim or potentially avoid responsibility altogether. The insurance company may try to shift blame for the accident onto the injured plaintiff, or downplay the injuries sustained. Standing up to the insurance company requires skill and experience in negotiations and litigation, including the ability and resolve to take a case to trial and all the way to judgment if necessary. Even if the plaintiff is found partially at fault for the accident or injury, California law allows the plaintiff to recover from a negligent defendant according to the proportion of responsibility allocated by the judge or jury.

Business and Real Estate Litigation
When considering the variety of contracts and transactions that are negotiated on a daily basis by the average business with customers, vendors, suppliers, employees, landlords, etc., it is not surprising that conflicts are unavoidable. However, when a dispute requires litigation to resolve, even a relatively small matter can become a significant problem. Besides the expense of litigation, which is a necessary cost of doing business, lawsuits can occupy the time and attention of owners, managers, and employees, hurting productivity and diverting valuable resources away from the core function of the enterprise. It is imperative to obtain representation from an experienced litigator with strong negotiation and trial skills, who can work to resolve the dispute quickly and effectively in your best interests, with your legal rights fully protected.
Real estate transactions can be especially complex. Land deals and building or development projects can involve multiple parties, such as buyers, sellers, lenders, investors, architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, and government agencies and inspectors. A dispute with any party can derail the deal or the project. Also, when something goes wrong, it can be difficult to identify the responsible party. For instance, a latent construction defect could be the fault of the builder, architect, engineer, surveyor, component manufacturer or any other of the innumerable parties involved in the construction project. Successfully litigating real estate disputes require knowledge of, and experience with, the particular issues that arise in the real property context, not to mention the voluminous municipal, state, and federal laws and regulations governing siting, licensing, permitting, environmental, and other issues.
