We are Master Mediators

PROFESSIONAL & EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS

And also practice in the areas of law below.

Family Law

Prenumptial Agreement outlines marital property-which must be divided in a divorce from separate property-which you keep. Protect yourself, enjoy marriage.

Business Law

Business Formation and advisement helps you turn a hobby into a money-maker, and create a seperate tax-and legal entity. By-laws too.

Construction-Contractor Disputes

Before starting construction, get a quote in writing and a contract. Create a file, keeping payment records and invoices.

Contractors: make sure subs sign lien-wavers upon work completion .

Landlord-Tenant

As a Landlord, having the "right" Lease in place with YOUR custom terms will make all the difference in avoiding a dispute, or being able to quickly resolve the matter.

As a Tenant, sending an Official Notice from a lawfirm is often helpful in resolving repairs and maintenance issues quickly.

The best way to avoid a Landlord-Tenant dispute, is for both parties to: 1. understand the terms of the lease, 2. communicate in writing with each other, and 3. get a lawyer involved before things become irreconcilable.

Medical Billing Disputes

Keep outside medical care Biller’s accountable. Hospitals and medical offices often outsource their staff and send you a bill as an “Outside Bill.”

These Outside Billers often fail to file insurance claims, and are quick to send unpaid bills to a Debt Collector.

Owner-Finance & Release Forms

Financing a car for a friend, relative, or employee can be beneficial to both you, and them...but do it right with a Finance Agreement.

Get in a fender-bender and settle it with a payment. Make sure to get a release signed in return, acknowledging the payment.

Master Mediators

Most courts require litigants to attempt Mediation before trial. About half of Mediated cases are successfully settled, clearing case-traffic in the crowded court system.

Mediation is a formal process where both parties sit-down with a Mediator, aka Neutral, discussing their positions, working toward resolution. The process allows the parties to CREATE THEIR OWN resolution, rather than it being dictated by a Judge or Jury.
