Construction and Real Estate

Construction law involves contracts between you and building companies, clients, and subcontractors. We work in your interest to ensure that you have adequate liability protection and to settle any disputes.

We also work with title search, escrow companies, and real estate agents on property sales. This can involve building contractors, banks, and mortgage companies.

Nonprofit Law

This is a growing area and we are experienced in developing the bylaws for philanthropic and other nonprofit corporations. Tax exempt status, fundraising regulations, and charitable contribution compliance are specialties for our Sonoma County law firm.

We work with the board of directors for nonprofit organizations and evaluate the compensation of administrators and executives. Volunteer work is also covered to make certain that community members have no conflict of interest when volunteering with a nonprofit.

Nonprofit law also extends to political interest organizations on local and state levels. Our support covers advising and monitoring compliance with all regulations under state and federal laws.

Furthermore, we dissolve nonprofit and commercial corporations in compliance with state and federal laws.

Estate Planning and Probate

You usually want your heirs to avoid extensive probate whenever possible. We set up trust funds and assist in distributing your estate to heirs under the terms of your will. We can also develop a living trust for people that establishes their priorities should they become incapacitated.

As for the necessary papers to make the probate procedure as simple as possible, we handle all of the filing requirements.
