Practice Areas

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.

Estate Planning: 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.

Trademark Law: If you are business owner, then you want to make sure you protect your brand. If you don’t, then you may find yourself having to go through the expensive process of rebranding your company. I provide trademark registration services. I also answer Office Actions from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Business Law: I can help make your dream a reality by forming the business or nonprofit you have always wanted. I also draft and review a variety of contracts, including liability forms, releases and permissions, buy/sell agreements, and contracts for leases, sales, and services.

Nonprofit Law: As a nonprofit professional for more than 20 years, I understand what it means to do work that you are passionate about. I help people form their state and federal nonprofit, provide legal advice to run the nonprofit effectively, and make sure the nonprofit is in compliance with state and federal laws. I also draft contracts and other documents your nonprofit needs to run efficiently.

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. I even have a website dedicated to my equine legal and business consulting services at HorsesandtheLaw.com.

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.
