WE WORK WITH OUR CLIENTS WITH LEGAL MATTERS RELATED TO BUSINESS, TAX PLANNING & IRS RESOLUTION, ASSET PROTECTION, ESTATE PLANNING, TRUSTS, WILLS, & BANKRUPTCY
We listen to our client and help resolve legal matters in their best interest, expeditiously and cost effectively. We maintain relationships with many lawyers with expertise outside of our practice area so that we can be a trusted advisor in referring other lawyers, accountants and professionals to our clients.
Business Law: We handle a full range of business law services, including serving as general counsel, formation of business entities, contract review and drafting, breach of contract, buy/sell agreements, mergers, 1031 exchanges, and more. Whether you are considering entering into a vendor contract, or you desire to sell your business our experience will be invaluable to your matter.
Tax Planning & Tax Resolution: If you, individually and/or your business are dealing with unpaid taxes and communications from the IRS, such stresses are disruptive for you and your business. If you are planning on buying or selling a business you need to plan for income tax and capital gain tax possibilities and consequences. Ron Hughes has an LLM (advanced degree) in taxation, and over 40 years of experience with such matters and dealing with the IRS. Ron will deal with the IRS so that you can get back to business, and get on with life.
Trusts, Will & Estates: Another very important aspect of life is estate planning and business succession planning. Estate planning involves creating a plan for loved ones to handle medical and financial matters when a client either lacks capacity to do so, or passes away. These are events that can be confusing for your loved one if the planning is very old, incomplete, or just was never done. Basic estate planning involves creating legal documents such as a family trust, will, medical directive, guardianship, and financial powers of attorney. More complex planning can include Charitable Remainder Trust, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust, or Grantor Trusts. We provide compassionate counseling and advice on all aspects of wills, trusts and estates law bringing peace of mind to you and your family.
Asset Protection and Business Planning: Asset protection and business succession planning is also part of business planning and estate planning. Simple steps include making certain you have adequate forms of insurance or forming a business entity. More complex planning can include multiple integrated business entities or trusts, to grantor and irrevocable trusts.
Bankruptcy: Most of us do not want to think about bankruptcy. However, it can be a tool for recovery, or a resource to remedy an unfortunate circumstance. Sharon Hughes has handled bankruptcy matter for over 35 years, representing debtors and creditors, individuals and businesses. We represent debtors in chapter 7 and 11 cases. Sharon’s experience in a wide range of litigation and transactional matters during her career gives her a better understanding of a broad range of matters in a bankruptcy context including real estate, probate, business operations, or family matters.
