We understand that life isn’t perfect. We take care of dissolutions of marriage, legal separations, third-party custody, guardianships, adoptions, and juvenile matters.

We argue for your rights, and help you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to family matters.  

Estate planning

For any and all families, estate planning is an important piece to a family’s future wellbeing.

We assess what your family assets consist of and what your ownership includes. We craft a plan with your accountant or other business planners to determine what is in your best interests.

Then, we determine if you need a simple will with a beneficiary deed, powers of attorney, living will, or even more complex structures like an irrevocable living trust.

No matter what you need, we are prepared to tailor a plan for you. Sometimes, this means implementing a strategy that goes beyond a basic will. We assist with family business and business planning tool, so that your legacy will continue with the fewest tax implications.

business organization and litigation

We provide services for the formation of business organizations and any subsequent legal matters. In conjunction with your financial and tax planner, we determine the ideal business structure or organization for your business needs.

Depending on your situation, we can assist with the formation of a partnership, corporation, or limited liability corporation. As your business grows, we help you monitor your acquisitions and sales agreements, particularly in case you might later want to sell because of the financial success of your business. 

Of course, if during your journey, any litigation arises from the operation of your business, we help you navigate that process.
