Contracts

Drafting and review of Contracts, Leases, Memorandums Of Understanding and Options as well as transactional documents such as Sales of Goods and Services so that these formal documents are tailored to best meet your personal and professional needs.

 

Case Referrals

There are some situations where clients will be best served by referring them to an outside counsel that has specialized legal knowledge, experience and expertise. In the course of twenty-five years of practicing law, I have developed a network of professional relationships with law firms specializing in areas such as Personal Injury, Bankruptcy, Family Law and Criminal Defense.

 

In those instances where outside counsel is suggested, I will help you identify and secure those services and work with you, and the firm you choose, to best address you particular legal needs.
