Areas of Practice

We can help you create a vehicle to reduce taxes, protect assets, and avoid the expense of probate.

We can help you tailor a will to specify what happens to your estate, select guardians for minor children, name the person to manage a beneficiary’s assets until they reach a particular age, and appoint an executor to handle the details of distributing your estate.

Probate and Estate Administration
If you are named the executor of an estate, the trustee of a trust, or if you are interested in administering the estate of a close family member who passed away without a will, we will represent you.  We are skilled at using techniques to reduce costs and foster efficient and timely administration.

Real Estate Closings
Whether buying or selling a home, a real estate transaction can be a joyous – yet stressful – occasion.  Let us put your mind at ease, so you can focus on packing and moving.

Civil Litigation
We accept clients on a case-by-case basis in a wide variety of civil litigation matters, including: animal bites, assault, automobile accidents, breach of contract, business disputes, civil rights violations, employment disputes, forcible entry and detainer, fraud, insurance claims and disputes, misrepresentation, malpractice, negligence, premises liability, promissory notes, slander, unwanted telephone calls and/or text messages, wage payment and collection, wrongful death, and wrongful termination.

Post-Judgment Collections
Winning your case is often just half the battle.  Once you obtain a judgment, you will want the defendant to pay up.  Let us help you discover whether the defendant has assets or income subject to turnover or garnishment.

We also represent clients in a range of other issues, including:
