Planning. Preparing. Being proactive. That's the way I prefer to practice law.
This isn't always possible; there are areas of the law that by nature require you to be reactive rather than proactive. If you are in a car accident, whether you're the responsible party or victim, you are reacting to the situation. When you are served with a civil complaint, you are put on the defensive--you react. After you are arrested for some criminal offense, you are reactive.
But there are other areas of law that lend themselves to careful, thoughtful analysis and preparation for the future.
Estate Planning. You have the ability at any time to create an estate plan so that you and your loved ones are prepared for your death or incapacity.
Residential Real Estate. When you first engage a realtor to begin looking to buy or sell your house, you make a choice to engage an attorney to help with the transaction or to go it alone.
Business Planning and Organization. With your first flicker of an idea for a new product, service, or business model, you have the opportunity to begin planning for the business that will support that idea from concept to creation.
Commercial Real Estate. When you hire a space planner and/or broker to help you find a new commercial space (whether for lease or for purchase), you make a decision to engage an attorney early in the process (before there's even a letter of intent) or to scramble to bring an attorney up to speed after you receive the seller's (or landlord's) first draft.
I thrive on helping well-prepared and motivated clients plan for their future.
How can I help you plan for your future?
