Civil Litigation

Our Experience 

Numerous factual scenarios can give rise to a civil case, including but not limited to a contract dispute, an employment matter, a regulatory concern within financial markets or professional licensing bodies, a breach of fiduciary duty, and many more. The results of these cases can significantly impact individuals or entities involved. If you find yourself in a civil dispute, there are various legal paths to resolve the issue. The laws at state and federal levels regarding these matters can be intricate, and trying to navigate them independently can be exasperating. That's why having a competent attorney to lead you through the civil litigation process is essential. At Arseneault & Fassett, LLC, our legal team holds a collective experience of over a century. We can offer you the representation you require. As a boutique law firm, we prioritize personalized attention, taking the time to understand your situation in detail and thoroughly examining the numerous legal aspects that may intersect with or be relevant to your case.

Consumer Protection Law

Our defense attorneys specializing in consumer protection have represented receivables management and collection companies in disputes with consumers. These disputes range from individual claims to proposed class actions and are governed by various federal and state consumer protection statutes. Some of these laws include the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and numerous state regulations. These consumer protection laws impose numerous regulations, many of which are unclear, and impose severe penalties for violations. Our team of consumer protection defense lawyers in New York and New Jersey offers proactive compliance strategies and reactive mitigation plans to assist clients facing such legal challenges.

Debtor/Creditor Rights

A debtor-creditor relationship arises when an individual or entity engages in borrowing or lending money, entering contracts for goods or services with another party, contingent upon future payments or performances. Both parties are bound to fulfill their obligations, and if one party breaches the contract, the other has the right to seek enforcement or obtain appropriate remedies. Should you find yourself in a financial or contractual dispute as a debtor or creditor, our team is equipped to assist in resolving the matter and safeguarding your rights. At Arseneault & Fassett, LLC, we are a specialized boutique law firm offering personalized legal representation to debtors and creditors alike. Whether you are seeking to recover owed funds or address violations of your creditor rights, we have the expertise to support you. With a collective experience of over 100 years, we vigorously advocate for our clients in civil litigation, striving for a positive outcome on your behalf.

Agriculture Law

We have provided legal representation to a multitude of produce suppliers and dealers in cases involving the federal Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act ("PACA") and similar legislation. These cases typically revolve around breach of trust and other tort claims against individuals associated with the non-compliant business. Moreover, these cases often entail requests for temporary restraining orders (TROs), which are filed at the outset of proceedings and without prior notification to the debtors, aiming to freeze the debtors' assets. While such requests are seldom granted as a matter of routine, we have never encountered a denial of such an application. In fact, the resulting TROs frequently pave the way for swift and effective resolutions.
