Business and Corporate law encompasses the law governing business formation, operation of business entities, corporate formalities, bylaws, contracts, sales of goods, registration of copyrights and trademarks, business mergers and acquisitions, employment and other corporate work.
Our philosophy on business clients is to provide full service.

We work closely with the entire professional team of our clients including the owners, executives, accountants, and lenders.
Any accident is an event resulting from carelessness, ignorance, poor decision making, distractions, or a combination of these factors. When there is an injury involved in any sort of accident, the injured party may be entitled to compensation under the law. For example, in a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party may be able to recover medical expenses, lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering, compensation for disfigurement and disability, and other damages.
We use a holistic approach to personal injury cases. We help victims from the very initial stages of the case involving medical payments coverage and property damage, to aggressive negotiation and suits to enforce rights to compensatory damages and reimbursement of medical expenses. Even after settlement, we assist with settling out subrogation rights on the best terms possible.
Our injury attorneys negotiate with insurers and can often resolve cases out of court. That said, we are willing to fight low-ball offers and don’t accept unreasonable initial proposals.
After the death of a loved one, we handle all necessary drafting of documents and can administer any type of estate. We handle formal proceedings, informal proceedings, and trust administration. We ensure your loved ones wishes and carried out effectively and efficiently.
When there is a dispute between two people or business entities, we are able to leverage our expertise in the law and our experience navigating the court systems to achieve results. Business litigation encompasses money disputes, property disputes, property damage claims, disputes regarding non-compete agreements, evictions, foreclosures, estate disputes, construction disputes, and other cases which ultimately may be resolved in a courtroom.
Our experienced litigators can handle a case from start to finish and oftentimes can achieve a favorable resolution prior to filing any sort of suit. However, if that is not possible, we routinely represent our clients before both state and federal courts, and achieve judgments enforcing their rights.
Family law cases are about coming up with a resolution that protects a client’s rights related to a divorce or similar proceeding. We routinely assist clients with divorces, paternity actions, adoptions, termination of parental rights, guardianships, and post-judgment issues. Whether the issue is financial or a delicate issue involving children or loved ones we can efficiently achieve a favorable resolution according to applicable law.
Estate planning is all about having a thought out and understandable plan. The legislature has provided all the tools needed for individuals to properly dispose of their assets without a lengthy and expensive probate proceeding. We work closely with clients, their financial advisors, and tax professionals to generate a plan that maximizes the amount of inheritances and ensures that proper funds are received as intended by the decedent.
We handle estate plans ranging from very simple planning designed to minimize probate expense to complex trust planning involving estate tax strategies, Title XIX planning, and planning involving business entities and succession.
Our real estate practice consists of buying and selling properties, and a lot more. We handle all matters involving residential, commercial, agricultural, or recreational land. We further assist in development of property, subdivision, declarations of condominium associations, land contracts, drafting of mortgages, and landlord/tenant law.
Our attorneys handle drafting of documents from initial offers to purchase to complex developer’s agreements. Our clients use us again and again for getting the job done right the first time. That said, unlike many firms we can not only assist in the transactional work, but we also are prepared for fight for our clients in court if a dispute arises.
Our criminal law practice is focused on protecting the rights of those accused of crimes and obtaining for them the best results possible given the facts of the case. In criminal law, constitutional rights have primary importance. Our experienced attorneys handle pre-trial motions, review of discovery documents, negotiation of pleas, and if necessary can defend your rights at a jury trial.
