Trusts & Estates
Planning an estate is one of the most important steps that an individual can take to protect property and assets for the next generation. Our estate planning attorneys can help with the simplest or most complex estate. We will be happy to discuss and draft Wills, Power of Attorney, Advance Directives, and Healthcare Directives to provide you with clarity and ease the burden on those who remain after your passing. Our attorneys can also assist with gift and estate tax planning, charitable planning, business succession and other needs.
Our experienced attorneys are prepared to handle even the most difficult of family matters. With decades of experience, we will work to accomplish your goals as it pertains to child custody, child support, protective orders, adoption, and divorce matters. Prior to agreeing to anything with your spouse or the parent of your child, you should consult with our experienced attorneys.
Whether you have had a minor accident, or have been seriously injured due to the negligence of another, injuries sustained from auto accidents can be difficult to overcome. Not only do you experience the pain, discomfort, and inconvenience associated with the accident, but you will face a national insurance company that has their own adjusters and lawyers on staff. Give us a call immediately, the consultation is free and you should have the benefit of counsel prior to discussing your matter with the insurance company.
Have you been injured on the job? You may be entitled to a number of benefits that your employer will not voluntarily divulge to you. Let our team discuss with you so that you can make an informed decision regarding medical care, payment for time off of work, and whether you ultimately have a claim for a permanent injury. We have represented injured workers in front of the Maryland Workers' Compensation Commission on a number of issues, including pay disputes, contested cases, and pay for time off of work.
