Landlord-Tenant DisputesRental real estate can be a very lucrative investment. And the multitude of landlord and tenant laws on the local, state and federal level is complex.
Criminal DefenseAt Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we aren’t just some of Buffalo’s most experienced criminal defense attorneys – we’re also former prosecutors with decades of criminal cases under our belts. You’re not likely to find a stronger team to put in your corner when it comes to fighting the charges against you. Give us a call – it’s free.
DUI/DWIEvery summer, the Performing Arts Center at Darien Lake hosts a concert series featuring some of the best known acts in music today – and the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office is on hand during and after the show, monitoring the crowd and setting up DWI checkpoints to snare motorists on their way home. The result? Local news consistently reports huge numbers of arrests and citations after nearly every show held at Darien Lake, and even after you’ve left the venue, you’re not safe from trouble with the police.
Wrongful DeathMy name is Mike Ranzenhofer, and I am that attorney. I have been helping people just like you handle their construction and industrial accident claims for almost three decades.
Traffic ViolationsMinor traffic tickets don’t have to mean big penalties for you down the road. At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we’ve helped lots of Buffalo residents fight back against DMV penalties and even suspensions and revocations. And if your license has been revoked, we can help you get your driving privileges restored.
Sex CrimesIf there’s one thing that everyone knows about America’s judicial system, it’s that a person is innocent until proven guilty, right? If you’ve been charged with a sex crime – or if you believe you’re being investigated in connection with a sex crime – you may find that’s as far from the truth as you can get. Charges of sex crimes can wreck your life. If you’re facing charges or an investigation for sex crimes in Buffalo, you need help from an experienced Buffalo Sex Crimes lawyer, and you need it right away.
FraudWestern New York is home to an aggressive Health Care Fraud Task Force, with federal and state agents from the FBI, IRS, local police, and many other agencies working together to watch for signs of fraud in our increasingly scrutinized health care system.
White Collar Crimes
MisdemeanorsAnyone who seizes, holds or detains the personal effects, clothing, furniture or any other property of one who has lawfully terminated a lease or in any way interferes with the removal of such property from the premises is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment not to exceed one year or by fine not to exceed $1,000.00, or both.
EmbezzlementWhen it comes to theft crimes, the State of New York doesn’t play around. And unfortunately for you, simply being charged with crimes like shoplifting, possessing stolen property, embezzlement, identity theft, or fraud is enough for many Buffalo employers to terminate you on the spot – ending promising careers before you even have a chance to defend yourself. Things can be even worse for immigrants working their way to permanent residency or citizenship, and students relying on scholarships or loans to complete their higher education.
Drug CrimesWestern NY County Prosecutors take drug crimes very seriously, and if you’ve been caught in possession of narcotics or trafficking in them (such as marijuana, cocaine or prescription drugs), you’re looking at an extremely risky legal situation that could cost you a lot of money – and can definitely land you in jail.
Juvenile CrimesAs a parent, one of the worst moments of your life is receiving a call notifying you that your child has been arrested for a crime. Maybe there have been previous bouts of trouble, or perhaps the behavior in question has caught you off guard, but whatever the situation, if your child has been arrested, you need a skilled Buffalo juvenile crimes defense lawyer.
Probation ViolationIn New York, courts will often authorize probation in lieu of jail time, typically for less serious crimes and when a defendant is unlikely end up in trouble again. Even though probation lets you stay in the community, work, and participate in your family life, judges can order limits on your behavior in a broad range of life areas, and if you’ve been caught violating the terms of your probation, it’s imperative that you bring on experienced Buffalo probation violation lawyers right away.
Identity TheftWelfare Fraud is a complicated charge that typically includes a number of related lesser charges, like making false statements, identity theft, or other similar charges. Unlike many of the cases that criminal courts see, Welfare Fraud cases rely on testimony from bureaucrats, financial records that can date back years, and detailed accounting data.
ForeclosurePurchase and sell rental property with advice on buying foreclosures, saving taxes, the best forms of financing and contingencies for financing, structural inspection, review of leases and municipal approvals?
Tax LawIn light of this significant change in estate tax law, homeowners should review their wills and estate plans with their attorneys.
Debt CollectionDebt Collection – The area of debt collection is the only good news for landlords. Creditors can garnish the wages of military and federal employees. Skip tracing of tenants is made much easier through a wide number of computer databases. Attorneys must comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act when handling evictions.
DivorceAnd if you’re interested in more divorce-related information, please refer to to Divorce Law Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) found below. It contains specific information regarding real estate and divorce in New York State.
Child SupportSeparation agreement or no-fault divorce where the parties live separate and apart pursuant to a separation agreement for a period of one year or more and the Plaintiff has substantially complied with its provisions. Separation agreements outline the parties’ rights and obligations during the period of separation, including custody, visitation, child support, maintenance, debts and distribution of property acquired during the course of the marriage.
Child Custody and VisitationChild Custody issues arise for many reasons, and can even involve extended family members, especially grandparents. When you need strong advocacy to protect the best interest of your child in Buffalo, you need the experienced attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer.
Premarital AgreementElective Share – You can disinherit your children, but you cannot disinherit your spouse, unless he or she signs a prenuptial or antenuptial agreement. The elective share of a spouse has been increased to $50,000 or one-third of the net estate, whichever is greater.
GuardianshipGuardianship – replaces the conservatorship and committee. A guardian will be given only such authority as is necessary to satisfy the specific personal and financial needs of the individual. The court must determine that the individual is incapacitated and that he cannot understand and appreciate the nature and consequences of his inabilities and, therefore, is likely to suffer harm.
Spousal SupportFamily law is a varied and sometimes very complex field. Areas such as adoption can bring long-awaited joy to a couple. Other areas, such as divorce, visitation, child custody and alimony can tear a family apart.
AnnulmentThere are grounds for an “annulment” where a party was less than 18 at the time of marriage or fraud or intentional misrepresentation of a material fact substantially affects the marriage, e.g. a promise to have children when the spouse has no intention of having children or a promise to convert to the other spouse’s religion or to raise the children in a particular religion.
Child AbuseThe majority of traumatic brain injuries are caused by car accidents – but falling, violence, sport injuries, and child abuse are also leading contributors to TBI.
Trusts and Estates
Estate PlanningEstate Planning – Elder Law – Probate – Trusts – Wills: With state and federal laws constantly changing, it can be an uphill battle trying to stay up-to-date. Let us help with these issues so your assets remain protected.
WillsLiving Wills – are written declarations instructing a patient’s family and doctor about life-prolonging medical procedures when his condition is terminal and there is no chance of medical recovery. Under constitutional and common law, patients have the right to refuse medical treatment.
TrustsLiving Trust. If the real estate was owned in the name of a living trust, it would be disposed of pursuant to the trust agreement.
Power of AttorneySTEP ONE: Complete both sides of the New York Will Information Sheet ( click here to print ). Include complete addresses of all persons who will be named in your Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy.
Citizenship and Naturalization
Personal InjuryI’m really not surprised. Farmers work with a lot of heavy equipment in remote locations – and that puts famers and laborers at a higher risk for serious personal injury.
Social Security Disability
Medicaid PlanningThe Limited Liability Company (LLC) – is a hybrid business entity which combines the best features of partnerships and corporations. LLCs will be commonly used for real estate ventures and family partnerships because of their tax advantages. LLCs can also be used for Medicaid planning and the ownership of life insurance policies.
Dog BitesDog attacks in the United States result in an average of fifteen deaths per year. And unfortunately, about 75% of all dog bites involve small children.
Business and Corporate Law
