Civil and Commercial Litigation
We help clients resolve disputes over payment, contract provisions, liens, evictions and other civil matters, whether in court, arbitration, mediation, or negotiations. To this end we represent both lienholders (banks, contractors, design professionals, and others), landlords, and other plaintiffs, and also represent homeowners and other defendants, depending on the circumstances of the case and the best interest of our clients.
Estate Planning and Probate
We advise many clients regarding their estate plan, and help them prepare and sign wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other legal documents to carry out those plans. We advise many business owners on the estate planning aspects of their shareholder agreements and LLC operating agreements, and as to business succession planning and buy/sell agreements. We also help our clients’ families carry out their wishes, both in probate and out of probate, and when disputes arise, we help clients resolve those disputes whether in court or out of court.
Real Estate and Construction
We represent real estate buyers and sellers in both commercial and residential transactions, including new construction. When disputes arise, whether before or after closing, we help clients resolve those disputes, whether in or out of court.
Business Law and Non-Profit Entity Counseling
We advise many businesses and non-profits, both large and small, as a contracted counsel, from entity formation and non-profit 501(c) , through operations issues such as contracts, collections, and employment manuals, dispute resolution and litigation, and mergers and business sales and purchases.
