Banking Law

Lawmakers create banking regulations in order to ensure that banks conduct regulations in a fair and transparent way. When banks struggle, the effects spread to consumers and can possible create needs for legal action.

Business Planning & Corporate Law

Many people find they need legal help with banking and finance law when forming a new business. There are many laws, contracts, and regulations. Finding a lawyer from the beginning can help to ensure compliance with all legal rules.

Car Accidents, Personal Injury, & Wrongful Death

Personal injury law focuses on the injuries caused to individual people.  Although property damage may be involved, such as when a car accident damages a car as well as injuring the driver, personal injury law addresses the injured person first and the damaged property second.  If you have been injured in a car accident, we can assist you with your personal injury claim.  In fatal car accident cases, a wrongful death claim may also ensue.

Commercial/Residential Landlord & Tenant Law

Understanding legal issues surrounding landlord and tenant rights is a valuable resource for you when you need it most. Legal expertise can guide even the most prepared landlord or tenant through the challenges involved in rental property.

Estate & Gift Taxation

Estate and gift taxes are imposed by the federal government on the transfer of property from person to another, either at death (estate tax) or while the giver of the property is still alive (gift tax).

Estate & Trust Litigation

Experienced knowledge in complex trust and estate law, and estate planning allows us to evaluate the issues, including tax consequences, and to advise our clients in a manner that both protects their interests and preserves the assets of the estate or trust.

Fiduciary Law

A fiduciary is a person who holds a legal or ethical relationship of trust with one or more other parties (person or group of persons). Typically, a fiduciary prudently takes care of money or other assets for another person.

General Civil Litigation & Appeals

If you or your business becomes involved in a legal dispute, such as estate or probate litigation, real estate disputes, contract disputes, corporate and business matters, and other civil disputes, we provide the knowledge necessary to help you negotiate and try to resolve the matter.  We understand that civil litigation can be stressful, costly, and time-consuming; therefore, we will work closely with you in guiding you through this process with a combination of professionalism and commonsense.

LLC’s, Partnerships & Corporations

Many people find they need legal help with forming an LLC, partnership, or corporation for their business.  We can assist you in considering the proper organization of your business and which type of entity meets your needs and business goals while working in consultation with your tax adviser.

Mesothelioma

The onset of mesothelioma, a serious form of cancer resulting from swallowing or inhaling asbestos fibers, is usually slow and many not appear for many years after initial exposure. If you or someone close to you has been exposed to asbestos in the past and now feels sick, please contact our firm to discuss your medical condition. We will help guide you through the process and attempt to assist you in obtaining compensation for this disease which presently has no cure.

Probate & Trust Administration

Probate is a court-supervised process for distributing assets of a deceased person.  Assets are distributed to beneficiaries in accordance to the instructions written in the person’s will.  Trust administration is not court-supervised and is the process for distributing assets from a trust to its intended beneficiaries.

Real Estate Law; Buying, Selling & Leases

We assist clients in the drafting of purchase agreements and leases.  Real estate law governs who may own and use the land.  Real estate may be either residential or commercial and can be owned by one person but used by another through rental arrangements.  Understanding legal issues surrounding commercial and residential landlord and tenant rights is a valuable resource for you when you need it most.  Legal professionals can help guide even the most prepared landlord or tenant through the challenges involved in rental property.

Wills, Trusts, & Estate Planning

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person’s life, for the management and disposal of that person’s estate during and after death, while minimizing gift, estate, generation skipping transfer, and income tax.  Experienced knowledge in complex trust and estate law and planning allows us to evaluate the issues, including tax consequences, and to advise our clients in a manner that both protects their interests and preserves the assets of the estate or trust.

Worker’s Compensation

If you have been injured during the course and scope of your employment, we are here to assist you in presenting a claim to help obtain compensation for your monetary losses.  Benefits may also be available for dependents of those workers who are killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses.  Although such benefits assist employees injured on the job, they are usually not sufficient to fully compensate injured workers for all damages sustained as a result of their work-related accident.
