Most people, when they initially sit down with us, only see estate planning as death planning. But planning for your death is only half of the problem. The other, potentially more critical part, is disability planning. With proper disability planning, if you cannot make your own decisions because of an accident or illness, your bills can be paid, your assets can be managed, and your health care decisions can be made by the people you love and trust the most.
Probate and trust administration are the processes through which estate assets are transferred after death. Assets to be transferred under terms of a will go through probate. Assets transferred outside of a will, such as by operation of law, or those planned for in a trust are handled through an Administration process. Administration also refers to the process whereby assets are transferred by rules of the state when there is no will. We can help make the process easier, more efficient, and provide peace of mind during a difficult time.
Contracting between various parties has existed in some form or fashion since time immemorial.

We can help by providing practical legal and business advice during your contracting experience. In the area of business law, there is no substitute for experience. Legal disputes are an inevitable part of running a business. While some of these disputes can be relatively minor, others may potentially jeopardize the long-term success of your business. Regardless of the nature of your legal dispute, you will need an experienced business law attorney on your side to aggressively protect the interests of your business.
For many people the first time they hear the term “mass torts” is when they become a plaintiff in this type of legal action. Typically, mass tort claims are filed by product liability attorneys when a large group of consumers has been harmed by the same defective products but not necessarily in the same way. According to Reuters mass torts makeup approximately 40 percent of product liability cases. If you or a loved one has suffered personal injury as a result of a defective medication or product, it is essential that you contact a first-rate product liability attorney to help you understand your legal options. Our firm has the experience, skill, and connections, both in negotiation and litigation, to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
