We strive to provide outstanding legal services at reasonable cost in a professional, pleasant, and stress-free atmosphere. Since our start in 1986, we have helped more than 20,000 clients with the following types of legal matters:
Bankruptcy: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy enables an individual to eliminate many common types of debts and get a fresh financial start in life.Those who don’t qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy may have the option of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. In Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, an individual is able to pay back part or all of his or her debts with an interest-free payment plan with a duration of 3 to 5 years.Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can also be helpful if you are falling behind in your mortgage payments.
Family Law: Contested Divorce and Uncontested Divorce, Annulment, Legal Separation, Prenuptial Agreements, Postnuptial Agreements, Family Court Matters, Custody, Visitation, Child Support, Spousal Support, Order of Protection and Paternity
If you are married and you and your spouse are in agreement to divorce and have discussed all of the decisions to be made, such as child support, custody, visitation, spousal support, and division of assets, you can obtain a relatively inexpensive, quick, uncontested divorce. If you and your spouse don’t agree on these issues, we can assist you in a contested divorce.
If an annulment is appropriate, we can obtain an annulment to end your marriage. If you and your spouse are not ready to end your marriage but want to live apart, we can assist you with a legal separation. If you need to go to Family Court, please keep in mind that it’s almost always best to be represented by an experienced lawyer. If you are need of representation, be it for child support, custody, spousal support, order of protection, or paternity in Family Court, we can help. Please note that we are experienced in helping same-sex couples with divorce and other family law matters.
Immigration: Permanent Residency (Green Card) by Family Sponsorship, Citizenship, and Deportation
We have helped many individuals obtain a Green Card through family sponsorship. Family sponsorship can be established by a U.S.Citizen or Green Card Holder and can be a spouse, child, brother, sister, or step-child. If the amount of time you have been a Green Card holder satisfies the requirement, we can assist you in obtaining your U.S. Citizenship. We also represent those in deportation or removal proceedings.
Personal Injury: Auto Accidents, Slip-and-Fall Accidents, Construction Accidents, and Medical Malpractice
Whether you have been injured in an automobile accident, slip-and-fall accident, construction accident, or medical malpractice, it is essential that you consult with your own independently selected attorney as soon as possible. Although it is not legal, many “ambulance chasers” out there will push an attorney onto you in order to secure the resulting monetary kick-back. We work with highly experienced attorneys to obtain the best results for you.
Real Estate: Buying and Selling a House, Condo, or Co-op; Refinancing, and Performing Deed Changes
When selecting an attorney to help you with the purchase of your home, don’t look for a bargain lawyer; you will get what you pay for. Also, don’t contact a lawyer that was recommended by any other party involved in the transaction, including the real estate agent. You want a lawyer who is looking out for your best interests. We have been helping people with the purchase and sale of their homes since 1985. We also represent clients who wish to refinance their mortgage or make changes to their deeds.
Wills and Estates: Wills, Living Will, Health Care Proxy, Power of Attorney, Probate, and Name Changes
Most people understand why they should have a will; however, many people don’t realize that they need a living will and health care proxy as well. In a living will, you state what actions you want to be taken or not taken in regard to your medical care in the event that you can’t speak for yourself. In a health care proxy, you state who you wish to have the authority to speak on your behalf to doctors. We also help people with their power of attorney and probate Needs.
If you wish to legally change your name, you must gain permission from the court and have a legal notice published in a newspaper. We have been representing clients with name changes since 1986.
