Fee Arrangements
Attorney Dennis L. Callahan offers practical, cost-effective advice to his clients. Legal fees are always discussed in advance and confirmed in writing, so there are never any unpleasant surprises down the road. Due to ethical, professional, and practical concerns, fee arrangements vary depending on the type of legal assistance needed. In personal injury cases, for example, the fee is usually a percentage of the amount recovered and contingent upon recovery. If clients do not receive compensation, then there is no fee owed. However, there may be circumstances that will require clients to be responsible for costs or expenses even in the event they do not recover any compensation.

Estate Planning

Many people avoid proper estate planning because they do not like thinking about death.

However, an effective estate plan can avoid many potential problems for loved ones if something happens unexpectedly. Estate Planning is generally considered the process by which people develop a plan that ensures that the assets they have worked so hard accumulating during their lifetime are protected and distributed to those they love. We have experience in the following areas:

-Power of Attorney
-Medical Power of Attorney
-Living Wills
-Living Trusts
-Life Insurance Trusts
-Family Limited Partnership
-Educational Trusts
-Charitable Remainder Trust
-Business Succession and Insurance Planning

The various tools listed above are regularly used to accomplish a client's specific goals. We assist clients by determining their specific estate planning needs and coordinating the various estate planning tools to ensure that those needs are effectively met. Through this process, a client's mind is eased knowing that they have adequately planned for the future.
