Income Tax Debt
Offers in Compromise
If you find yourself owing income tax you cannot afford to pay, I may be able to help you obtain temporary or permanent relief. There are many non-lawyers who advertise their ability to negotiate a settlement for “pennies on the dollar.” However, each taxpayer’s situation is unique, and such promises are often unfounded. While no lawyer can guarantee a result, I will not take a fee from you unless I believe we have a reasonable likelihood of success.
Power of Attorney
Preparing a will allows you to provide for the needs of your family members, charities and other individuals and entities after your death. Advance Directives and Powers of Attorney can help ensure that your end of life decisions are carried out in the manner you decide. It is not only individuals with a high net worth who have a need for a Last Will and Testament. Whatever your situation, I can work with you to accomplish your specific goals.
Change of Custody
Change of Child Support
Guardian Ad Litem
I believe uncontested divorces are the right choice for most families. Spouses who resolve issues of custody, division of property and support will not only retain significant funds to spend on their children and on establishing their separate residences, but will be in a better position to resolve future issues that may arise in parenting their children. I can help you ensure that matters are appropriately addressed and can counsel you through the law surrounding custody, child support and property division. Couples who do not have children are also excellent candidates for uncontested divorce. Their issues are often much simpler to resolve.
If you have been injured in an accident through the negligence of another, I can help you receive compensation for your losses. Medical expenses, lost wages, loss of services, pain and suffering and compensation for permanent injuries are some of the damages to which you may be entitled. I am unique in this area of practice in that I take the time to get to know my clients so that I can present an accurate and detailed description of who they were before and after the accident. My fees in these cases are based on a contingency; you therefore do not owe me any attorney’s fees unless we collect a settlement or judgment on your behalf.
If you have a loved one who is no longer able to make decisions concerning his healthcare or finances, you may want to consider obtaining Guardianship and/or Conservatorship for that person. I understand the sensitive nature of this situation and can guide you through the process and prepare the appropriate legal pleadings and documents should you decide this is the right decision for your loved one.

Breach of Contract
As a small business owner myself, I understand the need to keep costs at a minimum. I also understand that quality legal counsel is essential. I will work with you to reach the best resolution in the most affordable fashion.
