Firm Overview

The firm was established November of 2004 and the first case was an environmental case involving termite infestation and treatment issues. Since then, we have handled contested and uncontested divorces, developed wills, financial powers of attorney and health care directives and become counsel for a small business.

The focus of Calloway LLC Legal Services is to provide the best legal representation at reasonable cost.

Example cases

One divorce matter involved a person in the United States on a work visa whose spouse lived in a foreign country. The most significant challenge was getting personal service on the spouse. This was accomplished by contracting with a law firm in his country and having them serve him and provide the proof of service.

Another matter involved a client who was about to lose his home for non-payment of taxes. We arranged a mortgage on the property which allowed him to pay the delinquent taxes; assisted him in interviewing and choosing investment specialists to invest the remaining funds and provide him with a monthly stipend for his expenses and mortgage, tax and insurance payments until he can qualify for a reverse mortgage or other financial vehicle when he reaches the appropriate age. We also prepared his will, financial power of attorney and health directive and providing continuing assistance to him as needed.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

They were areas I had some knowledge about and further my desires to help people.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I think it very important that clients understand the legalities at issue, and ask questions about what is happening and why, but not try to become their own counsel in situations where a lawyer is needed.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am happy to review any documents a client wants to present to me.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am willing to discuss the issues and see what may be feasible.
