Our Legal Practice
We assist people in the following practice areas:
- Estate planning, wills and trusts:
We will help you look at the different strategies for distributing your assets upon death, preparing for possible disability, and naming guardians to raise your minor children in the event of your death. We will prepare all the documents necessary to put your estate/disability plan in place, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, designation of standby custodians for children and health care directives. We also help establish special needs trusts or supplemental needs trusts for disabled persons.
- Probate, estate and trust administration:
We work with personal representatives (another term used is executors), attorneys in fact, heirs and persons named in the will to help you complete the probate process and settle the estate of a loved one. We represent trustees and beneficiaries in trust administration. We also handle litigation in these areas, including abuse of power of attorney disputes.
- Guardianships and conservatorships:
We advise individuals who need to put a conservatorship or guardianship in place, establishing power of attorney for the protection of a loved one who lacks the capacity to manage his or her affairs. We also handle guardianship/conservatorship litigation, including abuse of power of attorney disputes.
- Real estate:
We handle a wide range of issues involving residential and commercial real estate, from the review and preparation of lease agreements to the completion of all legal matters related to the sale or purchase of property. We also handle real estate litigation.
- Business law:
We help businesses and business owners in handling business formation, choice of entity, the sale or purchase of a business, closing/winding a business down and business litigation.
We assist clients who have the need to sue someone or who are being sued in Minnesota state courts in the following areas of law: probate, conservatorships/guardianships, trusts, real estate, business law and consumer law, including disputes over cars, loans or services.
We provide a vast array of immigration services in helping you to obtain your green card through employment, business or family relations. For employers, we can help you obtain the proper labor certification to help you hire foreign workers. For employees we can help you to adjust or extend your immigration status to meet your goals. We can also help you obtain a green card if you are a family member of a permanent resident or citizen.
We help consumer debtors to avoid impending foreclosure, garnishments and harassing debt collectors and gain a fresh financial start. We can assist you in either a debt elimination bankruptcy (chapter 7), debt repayment plan (chapter 13) or advise you on alternative forms of debt relief.
