Business Formation
 
Depending on the nature of your business, it may be useful for you to incorporate or form an LLC. Why? Well, for starters, it would protect your business from your personal debts and, likewise, it would protect you and your family from the debts of your business
 
If you have not formed a separate legal entity for your business, you could be found personally liable for the debts or liabilities of your business and your personal assets could be at risk (including the assets you own jointly with another person, like your spouse or a parent, who has no interest in your business). While we all hope that such a day will never come, you can rest easier at night knowing that you are protected from this unfortunate situation.

Contracts
 
Many of us were raised in a society where people did what they said they were going to do.  There was no need for promises to be written down or witnesses to prove the contents of the agreement. Unfortunately, times have changed. We no longer live in that world. 
 
If your business is entering into an agreement, it is in your best interest to put the agreement in writing. Likewise, you should have any contracts prepared by companies you do business with reviewed by an experienced attorney. Making sure your contracts properly reflect your understanding of the agreement upfront can save you lots of time, money and a massive headache going to court over issues that have come about from misunderstandings later. Let me help you with this crucial preventative measure today.

Litigation

If you have been sued or find yourself in a situation where you may need to sue someone, call us first. The legal system can be difficult to navigate. There are many deadlines and requirements of parties both before they file a lawsuit (e.g., statute of limitations, administrative actions required to be taken before the lawsuit can be filed, public filings, etc.) and during the lawsuit itself. Many of these requirements and deadlines can significantly hurt or even eliminate your case entirely if you do not meet them. As a result, it is important that you seek legal counsel as soon as you find yourself involved in a lawsuit.
 
Whether you want to settle your case to avoid the costs and time associated with extended litigation or you want to take your issues all the way to trial, let me help. I will fight for your legal issues as though they are mine.
