Inheritance
Inheritance conflicts and disputes among heirs can drag on for extended periods, or grow incredibly complex. Direct negotiations among heirs also tend to become primarily emotional confrontations, making reasonable dispute resolution difficult in many cases.
Will Drafting
We recommend drafting a will in order to prevent disputes among your survivors over your personal assets. Disputes among survivors are particularly common in the following cases when a will is not drafted.

1. When no one qualifies as an heir
2. When a common-law spouse exists
3. When receiving caregiving from the spouse (daughter-in-law/son-in-law) of a child that has passed away
4. When no children exist and the individual wishes to pass down the home or homes in which the individual's spouse resides
5. When whereabouts of an heir or heirs are unknown
6. When the individual wishes to leave business property to a child who is to continue the family business
7. When an individual has a child with a previous spouse, and presently has a different spouse
8. When a divorced former spouse lives in a separate location

Real Estate Problems
Conflicts with neighbors and conflicts between landlords and tenants may seem small, but in reality can be quite stressful. We use negotiations as a means to resolve conflicts. When negotiations break down, civil affair arbitration and civil suits may ensue. Receiving specialized advice from a lawyer during the early stages is often effective.
