Unlike some larger firms, we understand that your situation is unique and requires individualized attention. We are empathic and give advice in easy-to-understand language. We arrange evening and weekend appointments to fit your schedule.
We offer reasonable rates. We can create a payment plan to fit your budget. And we accept all major credit cards.
Unlike firms that focus on only one area of law, we are a general practice with an emphasis on estate planning, social security disability law, landlord-tenant law, criminal law, and family law. We serve clients throughout the Hudson Valley including Dutchess County, Orange County and Putnam County.
ESTATE PLANNING - WILLS - TRUSTS - POWERS OF ATTORNEY
If you die without a valid will or trust, the State of New York, not your spouse or relatives, will determine how your property is distributed. In addition, your choice of guardian of your minor children will be unknown.
We can help plan your estate. We can explain your options and help you to create a will or trust that achieves the results you want. And we can ensure that your document is valid and complies with the formalities required by law.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY LAW - SSDI/SSI APPEALS
If you are disabled, obtaining social security benefits can seem impossible. The policies and procedures for appealing a social security disability denial can be confusing and frustrating.
We can help explain and navigate the complex process. We can file required forms, obtain medical records and represent you at your hearing.
CRIMINAL LAW - DWI - TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
If you've been charged with DWI or traffic violations and are convicted, a court can order fines, suspend your driver's licence and even impose a jail sentence.
We can help protect your rights. We can request a jury trial, challenge the evidence against you and cross-examine the government's witnesses. In addition, we can help you to decide if you want to testify and subpoena witnesses for your behalf.
FAMILY LAW - DIVORCE - ALIMONY - CHILD CUSTODY
If you're contemplating a divorce, you could lose custody of your children and possession of your home.
We can help protect your rights. We can negotiate a separation agreement that achieves the goals you want. Or we can petition a court to order the property settlement, spousal support or child custody terms you seek.
