A Word About My Legal Philosophy
Since I opened my practice in 1997, I have been fortunate to represent and counsel hundreds of clients in the areas of Divorce and child custody, spousal and child support, Business matters and litigation, Contracts, Family Law litigation and negotiation, and Estate Planning methods and documents to protect my clients' assets and income through the use of Trusts, Wills, Powers of Attorney, advance Medicaid/Nursing Home Planning, and more.
When working with my clients to resolve legal matters and situations, I am cognizant that I serve in several roles, and I provide dynamic, well-thought-out and prepared representation and counsel. My goal is to be bold, to advise and assist my clients in crafting reasonable goals, and in setting out the framework to obtain the best results possible for my clients, for their families, businesses, and future. I look forward to helping you.
When selecting an attorney, you should feel confident in that professional before you hire her. At your Consultation appointment, ask the qustions that are on your mind, including those that scare you. You are there to learn how this person can represent and advise you, and Knowledge is Power. If you have answers, you can make better decisions. It is part of my job to help my clients learn what their legal options are, and what they can do to help me put their best foot forward in their legal matters.
FAMILY LAW MATTERS: I understand that when you are going through a divorce, a child custody or support fight, or any other Family legal matter, it is one of the most stressful times of your life. It is important to me that my clients understand their legal options, have their questions answered and rights protected, and be well-represented by a knowledgeable and prepared attorney. I am always pleased to help a client negotiate a reasonable settlement to resolve their family or other legal disputes, and settlement is often possiblie when both sides are reasonable. However, when that opportunity is not present, I am ready to take your matter to trial.
BUSINESS LAW AND CONTRACTS: Contracts are the basis for all business, and are often the most important - and overlooked - documents that can make or break a client's position. Surprisingly, family law matters and forward-thinking estate planning issues are often goverened by contracts as well. My advanced degrees, education, and experience are in Law as well as Business: I earned my Masters of Business Administration at the same time as my Law Degree, in 1997. I have advised and represented clients since 1997 in the law of Business, Contracts, Entity Formation and operations, Litigation, and winding up of business affairs. I look forward to working with you.
WILLS, TRUSTS, AND POWERS OF ATTORNEY: For some clients, a Will is the best option, but for others, a Trust will better meet their needs and goals for controlling and maintaining their home and assets during their lifetimes, and passing it to their loved ones for the future. A consultation with a knowledgeable attorney can help you understand the differences in how these documents work, and can help you determine which better fits with your goals. Powers of Attorney for finances, healthcare decisions, and the care that will determine your very life, are vital, and sometimes are of more use to Clients than even a Will. These documents are not only for you: your family needs for you to have them. Call us at 865-675-9125 today for a consultation.
A WORD ABOUT FEES AND LEGAL CONSULTATIONS:
Often, one of the most valuable service we offer is the initial consultation. I charge a flat fee of $ 250.00 for the initial, one-hour consultation.
If our consultation lasts significantly longer than one hour, the additional time will be charged at $ 300.00 per hour. During the iniital consultation, I will not only answer your questions, but also give you information about the legal process, your options, and what to expect emotionally, financially, and legally, throughout your legal proceedings. I will also try and help you determine whether your problem can be solved outside of court. It is also a time for you to meet my staff who will work with me to assist you throughout your situation.
I look forward to working with you to help you resolve your legal situation. Call (865) 675-9125 to schedule a legal consultation today.
