A Christian business lawyer can Biblically, wisely, legally, and practically address concerns, provide transactional and litigation consultation, advice, representation, and/or services.   Furthermore, if an issue or need arises that is not within your attorney's sphere of experience or expertise, your attorney can often help you select and retain a reputable attorney who will properly represent your interests. Contact Christian attorney, Matthew B. Tozer, for a free telephone consultation at (949) 863-9445 regarding business lawsuits, disputes, or contractual matters.

"An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure."

Proper planning, legal advise, and Biblical wisdom can save you the time, significant expense, and the headache of a lawsuit.  Oftentimes, with proper legal advice and counseling or proper drafting of legal documents, lawsuits can be avoided altogether.

For example, if you will be going into a business partnership or relationship a Christian business attorney should remind you that, as a Christian business person, you ought noto to "not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers" (2 Corinthians 6:14).It is far simpler and more cost effective to identify and prevent potential legal problems or liability risks before they happen than it is to solve them thereafter. "A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself; but the simple pass on and are punished."(Proverbs 22:3, 27:12) However, if problems arise, retaining a lawyer may become a practical necessity.
