Having defended thousands of employment cases administratively and in court, we know employment law. If you have suffered from being terminated and you believe the termination was wrong, we can advise you, and if we deem it advisable, represent you to make right from the wrong. If you are a small company, we can represent you in administrative cases and in litigation.
Good fences make good neighbors. That’s what we’ve always heard, but good contracts can keep friends from being enemies. We’ve negotiated and drafted contracts from breeding an albino python to the purchase and sale of an off-shore drilling rig. If people can agree on a thing, then a contract can be drafted to keep things smooth. If you have received a contract full of legalese and don’t understand a word of what is written—attorneys are really good at that—then bring it to us and we can translate if for you.

We’ve done title work for residential purchase and sale, title work to drill oil and gas wells and pay proceeds, purchase and sale agreements for houses, tracts of land and businesses. If you have a question, we have probably handled matters like that before.

Should you be incorporated? Should you have a limited liability company? Do you need a tax identification number? Before you open up that new business, these are questions you better ask. You and your family don’t want to lose everything you have worked hard to establish because some lawyer is taking you to court. Before you commit yourself to that dream, let us help you protect it on the front end. It is less expensive than on the back end. We’ve helped hundreds of others to set up entities to protect their business and personal assets.
One of the most utilized documents to protect your assets from others is a trust. Almost anyone can prepare a trust, but not all trusts are created equal. You need the right advice to do what you want done with your assets, and sometimes there is language that must be used to protect those assets from the tax authorities or other administrative entities or law suits. A trust done correctly is a separate person with its own tax identification.
With 18 years in the field of senior living, we know about adult day care, assisted living, dementia care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation, contracts with seniors, and the administrative law, contracts and litigation that goes with having someone in need of these services or housing. We also know if from the corporate side, however, and if you are a small operation and don’t have in-house counsel; you better find out from someone what your residence agreements and options are. The plaintiff’s lawyers out there are hungry and will sue for large amounts of money. On the other hand, if you or your loved one have not been treated correctly by some long-term care company, then you want a lawyer who knows both sides. We do.

My dad used to make house calls and I went along with him. Well, I don’t make house calls, but I hope my manners are as good as were his. If not, just tell me. Like one of the guys from Georgia I used to work with used to say, “A friend is someone who will tell you when your feet stink.” That’s a pretty good guage.
