Business Law - Establishing Your Business on a Firm Legal Foundation
As business owners ourselves, Collins, Hannafin understands what it takes to start and maintain a successful operation. Working with CPAs, tax experts and other financial professionals, we will examine the financial and legal issues involved in different business formations, business contracts and employee matters. We also serve as general counsel to small and mid-sized businesses, and provide focused advice and legal services for larger companies on special projects and transactions.
Family Law - When Understanding and Compassion are Essential
We understand the stress families are under in today's economy and outsourced job environment. We understand the financial and emotional difficulties of people facing divorce and those involved in custody disputes. Our family law attorneys work hard to develop partnership relations with their clients. We take the time to listen to our clients' concerns and explain each and every issue in the divorce and focus on the steps that need to be taken to prepare for life after divorce. In appropriate cases, we offer collaborative law or divorce mediation which may save time and money and allow individuals to stay in control of the terms of their own divorce settlement.
Estate Planning and Elder Law
Planning for the financial future of your family requires a thorough understanding of the tax code and the various legal methods of protecting assets and transferring property. Whether you're interested in a simple will, or more complex planning involving the use of an irrevocable life insurance, or need a health care directive, or special needs trust, we can help you protect more of what you've worked so hard to earn over the years. If you're trying to settle the estate of a recently deceased family member through probate, we can help you avoid confusion and facilitate the process.
