  3. Consumer Defense
    Do you know how to protect your exempt assets from threats of collection? Have you been threatened with lawsuits by collectors or are you facing eviction without cause? You have the rights under law to claim your exemptions from collections. I can explain these defenses to you and insure that if applicable your rights are protected.
  4. Real Estate Transfers
    Buying and selling real estate or other personal property involves a large investment in many cases. Warranties and provisions of contracts in this area should be clearly drafted to protect your interests. The contract for sale or purchase must include the terms that insure you do not suffer unnecessary loss for breach of contract.
  5. Insurance Disputes
    Insurance contracts are generally written to protect insurance company rights. Your claims must be asserted within the time limits outlined in the contract and with proof of loss clearly documented. It can sometimes be difficult to negotiate rights under these contracts on your own. You may need the assistance of an attorney to fully recover your claims.
  6. Guardianships and Powers of Attorney
    You have the right to appoint the persons you want to handle your legal affairs while you are competent to do so. You may avoid family disputes by making this decision. Powers of attorneys are important legal tools to be used for this purpose. If you have a family member in need of assistance with legal and medical decisions, I can assist you in petitioning the court to approve a Guardianship.
