We have provided advice and representation at all phases of legal disputes: pre-suit resolution, litigation, settlement negotiations, trials and appeals. In the court room, we have handled, among other things, complex, multi-million dollar estate, probate and trust litigation, multi-million dollar divorce disputes, high stakes business disputes, nuanced business dissolution, contract litigation, and residential and commercial real estate disputes. Outside of a contested court room setting, we assist with estate planning, provide support and consultation for businesses regarding operations and compliance, trust administration, guardianships, conservatorships, document preparation, and provide general legal guidance and advice to individuals, families and businesses with an eye toward avoiding litigation , preparing for litigation, or simply providing peace of mind. We have represented many clients: small businesses, corporations, limited liability companies, sole proprietorships, trusts, trustees, beneficiaries, probate heirs and legatees, doctors, nurses, college professors, engineers, students, franchisees, business start-ups, real estate professionals, accountants — and even other lawyers. If we cannot help, we will be able to provide a list of attorneys who will be able to effectively address your legal needs or concerns.
