If you have a question of coverage, or disputes between competing policies of insurance, I can represent your interests in resolving these issues. Sometimes your policy provides for arbitration to resolve these disputes. It is probably in your best interest to have your own legal representation to present your position.
WILLS AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
I prepare Wills, Living Will (Desire for a Natural Death), Health Care Power of Attorney and Durable Powers of Attorney. I charge a flat fee of $450 for a simple will. This includes approximately an hour of consultation, drafting of the document, making any revisions, and final execution. If you are husband and wife or should you choose more than one document I give a discount. I can also help you with an administration of an estate. My fee is based on my hourly rate of $275.00.
I can help you with creating your corporation; an LLC or inc. I charge a flat fee of $550 plus the filing costs. The fee includes preparation and filing of Articles of Incorporation or Organization, By-Laws or Operating Agreement, corporate book.
ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
There are various forms of ADR, mainly arbitration and mediation. In arbitration the parties present their case to a private judge, the arbitrator, or a committee, panel of three arbitrators, who decide the case. Arbitration can be binding or nonbinding. Mediation is a process where the parties meet, with or without legal representation, with a mediator, a neutral person, who listens to both sides and then assists the parties to reach a voluntary resolution of their dispute. I can either serve as your mediator or represent you in a mediated settlement conference. I charge an hourly fee of $275.00 for representation or $250 an hour as a mediator.
