What is a Durable Power of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney is a legal document where you (the “principle”), give another person (the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) the legal authority to act on your behalf.

What is an Advanced Medical Directive?

Unexpected situations can arise at any time. Therefore, it’s important for all adults to have protections in place, not just the elderly. An Advance Medical Directive allows you to give instructions for your doctor or caregiver if you fall into a coma or become terminally ill, seriously injured, or mentally incapacitated.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in California?

While Californians are used to cooling off at the beach, they must also abide by the 6-month “cooling off” period before getting divorced. This date begins from the day the Respondent is served with the initial divorce petition documents or from when they first respond in court, whichever is first.

5 Reasons an Attorney Should Draft Your Power of Attorney Document

A power of attorney document creates a relationship between 1) a principal and 2) an agent, or attorney-in-fact. In a principal/agent relationship, one individual acts in place of the other.

How to Protect Your Trademark

If you are selling goods or services through interstate commerce, it is important to protect your brand as early as possible. Trademark registration allows you to enforce your rights and prevent infringement by your competition.

We are a full-service estate planning law firm serving law enforcement, landlords, collectors, parents, retirees and entrepreneurs.  Contact our office today to learn more about how we tailor our services to meet your unique needs.

ESTATE PLANNING

Estate planning involves much more than simply writing a will and ensures the property and tax rights of those closest to you are protected in the event of death or incapacitation. The process can include your loved ones, friends, and even charitable organizations.

Estate planning, in addition to financial/property protection, also involves decision making processes.  Our legal services will give you peace of mind knowing that your medical and financial decisions will be made by a person of your choosing if, at any point in the future, you are unable to make those decisions on your own. Let us protect your future so you can focus on the present.

BUSINESS FORMATIONS

You have the creative ideas, we have the business experience to get your start-up going.  The process of starting a company may seem overwhelming, but it can also be rewarding.  The number of permits and licenses required to “open your doors” varies by industry and failure to obtain them can result in fines, sanctions, or forced closure.

Don’t gamble your future by taking risks today. We offer flat-rate business start-up packages for new Partnerships, LLCs and Corporations. We’ll handle the paperwork and meet all state and local legal requirements.  Let us manage the process, leaving you free to focus on building your business.

TRADEMARKS

Competition in business is fierce. Failure to register trademarks creates opportunities for competition and can stifle expansion. This puts your business, and any product or service development you are undertaking, at an immediate and unnecessary risk.

Securing a registered trademark protects your brand and provides the tools to shield against others seeking to benefit from your brand development.  As your product or service becomes successful, the trademark itself starts to develop an intrinsic value. The time to protect assets is now; before they become liabilities.

We offer flat-rate packages for trademarking services to secure your brand and protect the value of your business.
