We Help You Plan For The Future

Many legal matters are concerned with shaping the future.

A business contract creates and governs a relationship between individuals or entities for the lifetime of the contract. An estate plan memorializes the goals and wishes of an individual and helps provide for their loved ones’ future financial security and even guardians for minors. The practice of tax law is concerned with minimizing and reducing the impact of various federal, state and local taxes as businesses grow and flourish as they evolve over time.

No matter what legal issue you are facing, the experienced and dedicated team at James Law Firm, P.L.L.C., can help you plan for the future you are envisioning for yourself, your family and your business. We can help you manage legal concerns before they turn into headaches or problematic litigation.

What Happens In The Absence Of Planning?

In many cases, disorder and disarray.

A business that fails to secure the proper relationships via well-drafted contracts or fails to choose the proper form of entity and legal structure may find itself unable to procure supplies, products, employees or equipment. Improper entity choice can expose the founders to personal liability that can lead to crippling losses. Selecting the wrong entity can also lead to inconvenient management structures that are inflexible or uncertain, and to an increased liability for federal and state taxes.

Similarly, a family member or business owner who doesn’t consider the essential nature of estate planning early on in life may not take appropriate action at the right time. As a result, they may end up leaving their family with complex legal issues such as probate litigation, inheritance disputes, unforeseen estate tax burdens and will contests after they pass away.
