Call 865-687-8744 to schedule a FREE CONSULTATION with me. I look forward to helping you.
Do you want to decide who receives your property at your death and who takes care of your children, or do you want to let the state decide? If you do not have a Will, you are letting the state of Tennessee choose. If you think you should make that decision, call me to schedule a consultation.
Has someone you know passed away and left you in charge of their estate? Instead of trying to navigate the hurdles of probate by yourself, let me help you. I will take the burden off of you and explain the process in simple, easy to understand terms.
Have a great idea but don't know how to start a business? Already have a business but need legal advice to deal with a new situation? I will work with you to solve your business problem, from simple to complex.
Are you or a family member in need of planning for long-term healthcare or end of life decisions? Do you need to give someone the power to make financial and healthcare decisions for you? I will help you with these situations by preparing the necessary legal documents to respect your or your loved one's wishes.
Tennessee law requires that I tell you that this is an advertisement. It also requires me to tell you that I am not certified as a specialist by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization in the areas of practice listed on my profile.
