Family Law: The family forms the first basis for how people succeed in life. Helping couples resolve their differences in a respectful way, that does the least amount of harm to children, can help people survive a difficult period in their lives.
Business Law: Resolving disputes efficiently keeps businesses running smoothly, which benefits the owners, employees and the community at large.
I am a careful drafter of documents and have a broad background in interpreting documents.
Running a business is much like being in a family and the legal issues that arise are interesting and challenging.
I strongly encourage clients to educate themselves about the basics so that they can better understand legal principles.
For example, a couple contemplating a divorce, or trying to determine a parenting plan can go to the Napa County Superior Court website. There is a link to the California Courts Self-Help Center which answers frequently asked questions in a divorce case.
Self-education can result in the client saving money in attorneys' fees.
Yes. I encourage clients to prepare a rough draft of a document. For example, in a family law case, clients can save legal fees by preparing some documents themselves, such as an Income and Expense statement or Schedule of Assets and Debts.
Yes. I have received specialized training in Limited Scope Representation (sometimes called "unbundled" legal services).
