Family law is a very broad and complex area of the law potentially involving dissolution of marriage, paternity, timesharing issues between married and unmarried parents, child support, alimony, adoption, temporary and property and debt allocation. Our primary goal is to assist you in reaching the most beneficial resolution of your matter at the earliest possible stage of the proceedings.
Mr. Grimm has 26 years of experience in drafting estate plans. During your initial meeting, we will discuss your family situation, your finances, and your wishes for providing for your loved ones. We will then discuss whether a Will or a Revocable Living Trust will be best to meet your needs. Often times we will recommend a testamentary trust for your children or grandchildren. We will also discuss how to best protect you and your family without court intervention if you become incapacitated.
Guardianship is a judicial process used to protect a loved one who has become vulnerable to abuse or exploitation due to mental or physical incapacity which renders them incapable of managing their own affairs. A guardianship may also be needed to safeguard the property of a minor child who legally cannot manage their own property, for example a child who is injured by the negligence of an adult and who has a judgment or settlement in their favor. Mr. Grimm brings his 26 years of experience in this field to assist you in protecting the most vulnerable among us.
