How Can We Help? 

Injury Cases...

Here are four exhibits used at four separate trials which we have conducted in cases. In one case, a car crash led to a spinal injury. In one, the design of a riding mower allowed the mower to shift expectantly from a stopped to a forward position, throwing the client off the mower. One case had to do with the defective design of a staircase in a public building; it caused an aged client to fall and fracture her hip. The tool with the blue handle in NOT a weapon in a case; rather the tool was an exhibit used to show how certain construction work was performed. I have it here only because it's a colorful exhibit.

We have obtained awards and settlements for our injured clients in many types of cases:

  • Industrial accidents involving death, crushing injuries and amputations

  • Car and truck crashes

  • Workplace accidents

  • Falls

We have done a lot of Workers' Compensation and Auto Accident work..

 

If you or a family member or friend has been injured, call us for a no cost interview to determine if you have a case. You will be able to speak with YOUR lawyer throughout your case.

Divorce...

Custody of children – support                            Award of marital assets – maintenance                                           Cost - emotional and financial

Three of the major issues to be considered in a divorce case are:

ONE – are there children

TWO – how much money is involved

THREE – what is this going to cost

Many times in a marriage with children custody becomes an issue. We have successfully fought for child custody for fathers and for mothers, both in divorce court and in paternity cases. Custody cases are very expensive, both financially and on a persons emotional well-being. We will prepare you for the fight.

We will help you fight for what you are due, be it child support, maintenance (alimony) or property of the marriage. Marital property includes most retirement rights; a proper QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order) or like order will be prepared. If a spouse has wasted marital assets, we'll go after a dissipation award.

Divorce costs, for attorneys fees, expert fees, examination fees where doctors are involved in a custody case, investigator fees, and other costs, can become staggering. We will tell you up front what the costs are, and how some of them can be avoided. Almost no one is happy right after the divorce is entered, but we make sure that we address what may happen so that you will have satisfaction with how you were treated by your attorney. And maybe you'll even be happy with the divorce two and a half years after its entry.

Almost every divorce has additional issues which need attention i.e. refinancing the house, removal of a former spouse from the mortgage obligation, resumption of maiden name, supervised visitation, grandparent visitation, moving out of state, and a myriad of others.


Small Business...

How do I protect myself when I set up a business venture? Come in and we'll tell you how, and we'll pair your situation with the appropriate entity - corporation, LLC (Limited Liability Company), partnership, or some other way of giving you peace of mind. We'll discuss insurance, tax and permits, and everything else that will affect your enterprise. And, when you call with a question or need to come in, we will be ready to serve you in a prompt and efficient manner. We return telephone calls, we stay in touch.
