Practice Groups

Business and Commercial
RWHA attorneys are highly skilled in representing clients in complex business disputes, whether by litigation or arbitration, or by engaging in pre litigation resolution techniques.   Our experience includes the successful handling of breach of contract actions, fraud claims, involuntary business dissolutions, collections, and other matters.

We also provide transactional services to business clients, including contract drafting, negotiation and review, business formation and voluntary dissolution, and advice on litigation avoidance.

Bail Law
Our attorneys have significant experience in the specialized area of law relating to bail bonds.  We make regular court appearances seeking bond exoneration and have been involved in several high profile cases involving the rights of fugitive recovery agents engaged in searches and arrests, and have represented bail companies and sureties in several published appellate decisions.

Real Estate & Construction
RWHA attorneys have represented real estate buyers and sellers, as well as real estate brokers, in a variety of real estate-related claims, such as failure to disclose material facts.  We have represented contractors and dissatisfied homeowners in disputes concerning new construction and remodels.  Recently, Mr. Hicks defended a partition action where the plaintiffs had been mistakenly added to title and who then sought to deprive the rightful owners of half of their home.

Mr. Wright is a licensed real estate broker who has experience in assisting home buyers and sellers in sometimes highly complex purchase and sales transactions.   This background provides Mr. Wright with a unique insight to the challenges facing buyers and sellers and their representatives in this dynamic market.  Mr. Wright can help you ascertain the duties of buyers and sellers and their representatives in order to evaluate potential claims and defenses in real estate-related disputes.

RWHA attorneys are also experienced in drafting, negotiating and reviewing commercial leases on behalf of tenants, including retail, bars/restaurants, and office.

Personal Injury
The attorneys at RWHA have extensive experience representing clients in a wide variety of serious personal injury cases.  Examples include injuries caused by car accidents, defective products, slip and falls, and other similar cases.

We understand that the legal process may be intimidating to clients, so we provide very personalized service and will explain the process each step of the way.  You are always welcome to contact us at any time, either by phone or by coming into our office, and you will speak with an attorney who has time for you and knows your case, not a paralegal or secretary who does not.  When representing clients who have been injured by the negligent actions of others, RWHA attorneys aggressively seek the maximum award for its clients. These types of cases are typically accepted on a contingency basis, meaning the client is not responsible for our time unless there is a recovery through settlement or trial.

Patent and Trademark
Kenneth Wright is a registered patent attorney and provides legal advice in connection with all facets of intellectual property law including patents, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets.  Mr. Wright has successfully prosecuted patent and trademark applications for registration before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as well as pursued and defended against claims for infringement.   Mr. Wright also advises businesses on their intellectual property strategy and portfolio.

Bob Hicks represented the State as a Deputy Attorney General in the Los Angeles office of the Department of Justice for several years and has been engaged in preparing and responding to civil appeals since 1997.
