Southern California Attorneys Serving In Ventura, Santa Barbara and Westlake Village

With over 25 years of combined experience in the practice of law, the attorneys at Rounds & Sutter have helped thousands of individuals and businesses in southern California with their most pressing and important legal needs. Our firm stands ready to provide sound advice and effective representation in any of the following areas of law:

Bankruptcy and Debt Resolution – We clear a path for individuals and families to find their way out from under overwhelming debt, save their home from foreclosure, and make a fresh start with their finances. We give small business owners the elbow room they need to reorganize their business, deal with creditors, and place themselves on the path to profit and prosperity. Whether fighting off a zombie second mortgage or negotiating a debt settlement, our lawyers are looking out for the best way to resolve your legal issues. U.S. bankruptcy laws can save you from financial ruin; Rounds & Sutter can help.

Auto Shop Defense – We represent California auto repair shop owners and technicians dealing with enforcement actions and licensing issues from the Bureau of Automotive Repair. Running smog checks can be a critical component of your business, but failing to comply with applicable laws and regulations can put your BAR license and your entire shop in peril. Our dedicated lawyers stay up-to-date and involved in this ever-changing and complex area of the law to provide high-quality advice and defense to auto shop owners as needed.

Consumer Advocacy – We stand squarely in the consumer’s corner and fight unlawful trade practices and all types of consumer fraud, as well as unfair debt collection and the harassment of bill collectors. We help homeowners who are upside-down on their mortgage payments strip away second mortgages, and we negotiate debt settlements with creditors to keep your personal finances afloat. If student loan debt is holding you back and keeping you down, we can help you find effective solutions, from income-based repayment programs to discharge of the debt in bankruptcy.

Business Law – Our business lawyers assist with entity formation and corporate governance, negotiating and reviewing business transactions, and representation in mediation, arbitration and litigation to resolve the full range of business disputes, from breach of contract and business torts to shareholder derivative suits. Small businesses can’t afford their own in-house legal counsel or legal departments, but they face all the same legal challenges that major corporations do. Let Rounds & Sutter be your outside counsel, always ready whenever you need us with advice, representation, and technical assistance across the spectrum of small business legal needs.

Real Estate – Whether you are a buyer or seller of a residential or commercial property, make sure the deal is negotiated with favorable terms, and that all the proper steps are taken to ensure a smooth and successful transaction. Our experienced litigators also work to resolve any real estate disputes that arise throughout the lifetime of property ownership. At Rounds & Sutter, you get the advantage of a lawyer who is also a real estate broker, so you know you are getting high-quality advice from someone who knows real estate transactions from every angle. We can act as the Buyer’s Agent in residential transactions at no cost to the buyer, providing a level of legal insight that real estate agents simply don’t possess.

Employment Law – Our employment law attorneys represent workers who have been the victim of wrongful termination, discrimination or harassment based on age, race, sex, disability or other unlawful motives. We help employees recover unpaid overtime and redress other federal and California wage & hour law violations, including denial of sick leave or family leave. Additionally, we provide affordable defense and legal services to small businesses dealing with wage and hour issues and other employment law matters, providing representation in court and practical solutions to deal with lawsuits and employee complaints.

Estate Planning – We take the time to sit down with the client and understand their needs and desires for the future. Through the right combination of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney, we ensure that our clients are taken care of during their lifetime and that their wishes are carried out after they have gone.

Personal Injury – We help victims of car, truck and motorcycle accidents, slip and fall, defective products, medical malpractice and other forms of negligence get the compensation they need to deal with their injuries, pain and the disruption in their lives another’s negligent or wrongful misconduct has caused.
