Starting a small business requires “how to” knowledge and a clear understanding of the different types of business entities, such as corporations, limited liability companies (LLC) and partnerships. We can work with you, your partners and accountants in determining the business structure to best suit your needs. We also have experience in business sales and dissolutions, asset sales, non-competition and non-disclosure agreements, as well as providing litigation services for collections and other business disputes.
Families and business owners must plan for the future. Our attorneys are capable of assisting you in developing estate plans to protect you, your family and your assets in the event of death or disability. Whether you require only a simple will, a trust to provide for your spouse and children, or a business succession plan, we can provide both advice and guidance in achieving your estate planning goals.
PROBATE and ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
Separate from estate planning process are the realities of dealing with the loss of a loved one. In addition to that emotional stress are the legal requirements regarding serving as Personal Representative and Executor of an Estate, honoring the Last Will and Testatement of the deceased, identifying and distributing assets, navigating the probate process and dealing with creditors. We have years of experience in estate probate and provide all the assistance you and your loved ones may need at a difficult time.
Unfortunately, the dissolution of a marriage usually has a serious and lasting impact, not only for the parties and family members, but on family assets and businesses. Our family law attorneys have many years of experience in dealing with both the personal and financial costs of divorce.

Our experienced domestic attorneys can help guide you through what is most often an emotionally and financially devastating time, and have available to them the business, real estate and estate planning experience of all the members of the firm.
