I enjoy helping my clients in several different practice areas. Please review the list below and click on the link to each page to learn more about that practice area.
Wills and Trusts : I explain and draft estate planning documents that work best for your specific situation. I draft wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care proxies, advance directives, HIPAA releases, and declarations of homestead. I also talk with you about issues that go beyond asset planning, such as your concerns regarding the emotional impact of your estate plan on your family and friends.
Elder Law: As we age, we have legal issues we need to address that we didn’t have when we were younger. I talk with you about long-term care planning, asset protection, and estate planning. I help you keep your home if you have to use Medicaid for nursing home costs.
Equine Law: As an attorney who owns and rides horses – and even spent several years as a horse professional – I provide you with equine legal services that understand your unique situation in the horse world. I draft contracts, form for profit and nonprofit corporations, provide business consulting, draft estate planning that includes your horse and your horse business, and file trademark and copyright protection.
Business Law: Your company can be the fulfillment of your dreams and can provide you with financial security and freedom. I help you with business formation, contracts, legal advice, business documents, document review, advising conscious companies and B corporations, and subscription services.
Trademarks and Copyrights: You work hard to make your company successful. Registering your trademark is a way to protect your brand, your goods, and your services. A copyright protects original artistic works, such as books, songs, and photographs. I help you understand the law and file for trademark and copyright protection.
Animal Law: I understand that animals are a big part of many people’s lives because they have a huge part in my life. I work with you to include them in your estate planning so that they don’t get left out if you are incapacitated or when you die. I also help form animal-focused for profit corporations and nonprofits, as well as draft related contracts and file for trademark and copyright protection.
Nonprofit Law and Compliance: As a nonprofit professional for 20 years, I understand the passion involved in forming and running a nonprofit. I couple that experience with my legal knowledge to help you form a federally-recognized nonprofit. I also help you understand the legal issues involved in running a nonprofit and the documents you need to file to remain in compliance with the nonprofit laws.
