Practice Areas

The Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC is a business and legal consultancy with emphasis on business, real estate, technology, severe personal injury, and all facets of trial/litigation/arbitration.


In addition to assisting individuals and businesses with commercial and business strategy and counseling, the firm frequently represents clients in a wide variety of state and federal litigation and in arbitrations, such as breach of contract, fraud, violation of trade secrets, unfair trade or business practices, and in insurance coverage disputes, among other things.

For any legal property matter, from Architectural and Zoning, the real estate practice has successfully resolved multiple-million dollar property disputes and claims.

The firm provides entrepreneurs, inventors, investors, and their representatives competent and creative answers to contract problems and transactions, as well as considerations of risk and navigation through the murky government regulations that are not techno-friendly.

Severe Personal Injury

Someone severely injured in an incident will typically suffer more traumatic injuries including head or body injuries resulting in traumatic brain damage, amputation and complicated surgeries, and sometimes unfortunately permanent disability or wrongful death. The firm vigilantly takes on only seriously and severely injured people or their families, and uses creative and skillful lawyering of the evidence and witnesses to help secure the highest results for our clients.

Premises Liability

Premises liability refers to an injury caused by an unsafe environment or condition or activity on someone else’s land, including injury and harm resulting from criminal activities the owner should have known about at the time. The most common type of premises liability case is a “trip & fall,” but the firm has also represented victims of physical injuries, rape or other sexual assaults that were caused a failure of duty an owner had to provide adequate security, or by animal bites, defective elevator and elevator accidents, and by exposure to hazardous conditions or toxins.

Professional Liability and Malpractice

The firm has succeeded in multiple professional malpractice claims and cases, including businesses, attorneys, accountants, physicians and doctors, medical centers, and insurers. Time and evidence is often a factor in these types of cases so parties injured by a professional often have a limited time to file a claim or lawsuit.
