Areas of Law Description
We understand that loss of income, a medical emergency, a divorce or any number of other situations can lead to overwhelming debt. The debt discharge offered through bankruptcy is designed specifically for people who face these situations. Bankruptcy immediately: prevents creditor harassment, foreclosure, repossession, wage garnishment and lawsuits.
- Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed to eliminate the majority of unsecured debt. You will have the option of keeping or surrendering most items that you still owe money on. Chapter 7 can be filed upon meeting the requirements of a bankruptcy means test. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to reorganize your debts and reduce your payments. You will have a payment plan that will last for three to five years.
- Criminal Defense
Our lawyers have extensive experience in the adult criminal justice system. We also handle cases in juvenile court, which follows significantly different rules than adult court. Juvenile law matters fall into the area where family law and criminal defense meet. Because we handle both of these areas, we are well-equipped to defend juveniles against criminal charges. We defend against all misdemeanor and felony offenses, including: assault, domestic violence, drug possession, marijuana grow houses, DUI, OWI, minor in possession, firearms, sex crimes, warrants, retail fraud and larceny and embezzlement.
- Estate Planning
An estate plan is designed to establish a road map for your loved ones in the future, while keeping you in control of your financial affairs now. We develop customized estate plans based on families' unique circumstances. The versatility of an estate plan can cover everything from your retirement plans to how you would like your assets distributed in the future. In addition to handling all aspects of estate planning, we also handle probate and other estate administration issues, as well as disputes over wills and estates.
