Practice Overview

Estate Planning

Our estate planning practice focuses on helping our clients to plan for the future, so that their loved ones, finances, and personal property are taken care of the way they wish in the event of their death or incapacity. To that end, we provide counseling and drafting for wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advanced health care directives. Our goal is to ensure that all of our estate planning clients have a personalized plan ready for implementation that meets their specific needs.

Copyright and Trademark

Our copyright and trademark practice focuses on helping our clients to protect their intellectual property. To that end, we provide counseling in the areas of copyright and trademark law, review and draft licensing and contract agreements, and assist in registering their copyrights and trademarks in the appropriate government offices. Our goal is to ensure that our clients know their rights in regards to their intellectual property, and have the greatest protection they can get under the law.
