Guardianship and Conservatorship for Adults and Minors We provide services to protect vulnerable adults who need a guardian or conservator to make medical, housing, financial, or other decisions on their behalf, and we work with relatives and caregivers who need legal authority to protect and make decisions for children in their care.
Estate Planning and Probate. Our estate planning work includes helping clients choose between a will or trust, drafting necessary documents, and discussing end of life decisions. We help clients plan for quality of life, provide for loved ones, and prevent misunderstandings. Our probate practice focuses on effective representation during a time that can be stressful and confusing.
Family Law. Our family law practice supports clients in building a positive future for themselves and their children in divorce, custody, step parent adoptions, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Mediation and Collaborative Practice. Mediation and collaborative law are alternatives to court that empower clients to negotiate their own agreement instead of having a judge decide for them. Going to court can be financially and emotionally disruptive, and these are sound options that often result in higher quality, more durable outcomes.
Do-It-Yourself. Our self-help services include drafting and reviewing family law court pleadings; writing letters; negotiation coaching; designing parenting plans (including plans for parents with addiction or criminal issues); trial preparation coaching; and coaching clients who are participating in mediation or arbitration. Our goal is to provide clients cost efficient legal counsel and support.
