A FEW EXAMPLES . . .
Estate Planning - In assisting individuals and family members with estate planning, they frequently misunderstand what will occur if they fail to have an effective estate plan. Unfortunately, a failure to properly plan can result in significant delays, unnecessary costs and expenses, lengthy probate or other court proceedings, and in property along with other assets being unavailable to loved ones and intended beneficiaries when an individual dies or is incapacitated. Further, if parents fail to have a will designating a guardian for their children, the children could end up being raised by a person that the parents would not have chosen. Our attorneys carefully craft estate plans to fit your needs. It is not a one size fits all approach. Estate planning can vary from the straightforward use of proper beneficiary designations with limited planning needed, to more complex planning, including business succession and asset protection plans. Some of the tools our attorneys use to create an effective estate plan include:
- Durable Powers of Attorney
- Health Care Treatment Directives (a/k/a Living Wills)
- Beneficiary Deeds or other real estate conveyances
- Asset Protection Plans
- Business Succession Plans
Health Care Law - We recognize that HIPAA compliance, EHRs/EMRs, regulatory standards, practice acquisition, and other issues have arisen in recent years presenting challenges for health care entities, physicians and other medical professionals. We are here to work with you in finding solutions. We also provide guidance in crucial matters such as risk management to reduce or avoid potential threats to your practice. We have had the privilege to represent many exceptional medical professionals and defend them when their reputation and practice is on the line in medical negligence cases and disciplinary proceedings before licensure boards.
Business Law - We routinely assist business owners in all phases of their business's life cycle. In starting a new business, often the "what ifs" are overlooked. We are here to assist you so that your business is prepared from the start. Fortunately, by recognizing and crafting the business formation or subsequent business transaction documents to address the "what ifs," we can help your business thrive and avoid many of the potential pitfalls that could lead to unintended litigation or business closure. Of course, problems and disputes are not always avoidable, and we are prepared to assist you when the course of business may lead to litigation.
Personal Injury - We understand the significant impact personally and financially when a family member is involved in an auto, motorcycle, or tractor trailer accident. While life may never be the same, and the loss of a loved one can never be replaced, we strive to secure just compensation on behalf of those who are seriously injured or have lost a loved one as a result of someone else's failure to follow the rules of the road. In handling serious injury and death claims, we utilize our knowledge of the law and medicine, including physicians and medical experts, to simply and persuasively present your case to the negligent driver's insurance company or the jury.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to achieve your objectives.
