How can we help?

Below is a list of some of the legal services that we offer.

Guardianships & Conservatorships

When family members become incapable of caring for themselves loved ones have the legal recourse of requesting a guardianship. Guardianships allow parents to administer the affairs of teens struggling with substance abuse, children to care for elderly parents, and spouses to manage affairs for partners injured in accidents. We have over 30 years experience guiding family members through the sometimes complicated process of obtaining guardianships.


probate

Probate of disputed estates can be a tricky and expensive ordeal. We have helped hundreds of clients successfully navigate this potentially troublesome legal maze and come through on the other side with settlements agreeable to all sides.


real property

We can assist you with sales, purchases, exchanges, easements, boundary disputes, and quieting of title.



wills

Leave a legacy that protects and provides for the needs of your loved ones. We can help you discover how we can help you create a will that will save family members unnecessary hassle and frustrations while leaving you with the peace of mind that can only be provided by a will drafted with the help of your attorney.


business entities

With self-employment taxes costing the average citizen an extra 15% in taxes each year, corporations have become an economical and sensible way to reduce your liability while providing significant tax savings. Setting up your own corporation or limited liability company is easy and inexpensive. We have helped over 300 business owners discover the benefits of a business entity.


landlord/tenant

Whether it's leases, options to purchase, or unlawful detainer actions, we have helped numerous property owners and tenants settle disputes in a mutually-agreeable manner. We can guide you through whatever issues you are facing.



trusts

Financial security is the result of careful planning. One way to protect valuable assets is to provide a means for administering them. We can explain how a trust can provide a legally sound way of providing for the financial future of you and those you love.
