Real property can be a complicated area of law. Mistakes can be unforgiving or difficult (expensive) to fix. Sterling Law advises any individual transferring real property to first consult with an experienced real property attorney.
Through our affiliation with the American Divorce Association for Men (ADAM), we offer legal representation focusing on the unique needs and rights of fathers and husbands.
LIMITED SCOPE REPRESENTATION
Did you ever want to hire an attorney but couldn’t afford their full services? Starting January 1, 2018, attorneys practicing private civil law (not criminal or commercial matters) are allowed to “unbundle” their services to provide discrete legal services of limited scope rather than traditional full representation. These services are referred to as Limited Scope Representation (LSR).
The attorneys of Sterling Law will guide you through the process of forming a new entity for your small family business. We will help you select the appropriate entity which may be a sole proprietorship, a d/b/a, a corporation for-profit or not-for-profit, a partnership, or a limited liability company.
If you or a family member are accused of committing a misdemeanor crime such as DUI, disturbing the peace, or retail fraud and have been arrested, you can benefit greatly from the advice of an experienced criminal attorney. These legal matters can significantly affect you and your family now and in the future so it is very important to handle them correctly.
