PROBATE &

ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

Decedent Estate Administration, Adult Guardianship, Trust Administration

The loss of a loved one can be the hardest time in a person's life. To complicate matters further, many legal steps and choices must be made concerning a deceased family member's estate. We assist you in navigating the complex and somewhat confusing probate system in order to ensure that your loved one's final wishes are carried through. If you have been appointed as a trustee, we are happy to assist you in administrating trust assets. 

Sometimes we are put in a position where we have to start caring for the physical needs and financial affairs of loved ones who can no longer care for themselves. In this case, an adult guardianship may be needed to properly protect your loved one and their property. 

 

FAMILY 

LAW

Adoption, Guardianship, Divorce 

When contemplating divorce, many people want the process to be over as fast as possible and do not think about the consequences for their children, property, and personal well being. Hiring the right attorney for your divorce may prove to be one of the best decisions you have ever made. We strive to protect and preserve your family and your assets.  

 

BANKRUPTCY

Debtor and Creditor: 

Chapter 7, Chapter 13

If you or your business are having debt problems, we can evaluate your financial situation and, if needed, we can represent you in filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Often due to the nature of certain debts and certain types of income, there may be options other than bankruptcy. Even if you do need to file for bankruptcy, most of our clients retain all or nearly all of their property. 

 

CIVIL

LITIGATION

Contracts, Property Disputes,

Real Estate, Business

Even old business partners and long time neighbors can have disagreements. Sometimes these disagreements can escalate to the point of damaging monetary or property interests of either one or both of the fighting parties. Property line and easement disputes and their outcomes can effect the value of your real estate and can hamper efforts to sell or mortgage real estate. Business and personal contract disputes can prove costly if not handled appropriately. If you have been damaged and need to file a lawsuit or have been served with a lawsuit, let us assist you  in protecting your property and peace of mind with effective court representation.
