Without question, some of the most emotionally charged issues in all of law fall under the category of Family Law. Whether it be a custody dispute or divorce proceeding, our offices can assist you in any and all facets of any Family Law matter in a compassionate and caring manner. Family Law issues include, but are not limited to: Prenuptial Agreements, Uncontested Divorce, Litigated Divorce, Legal Separation, Child Custody and/or Visitation, Paternity, Child Support, Spousal Support and Property Division. Attorney Scott S. Streed has devoted the bulk of his twenty-plus year career to Family Law matters and as such, his knowledge of the law in these areas is extensive.
Mediation is the process by which the parties in a legal action utilize a neutral third-party to assist them in resolving their conflict and reaching amicable resolution in a cost-effective manner. The parties, through mediation sessions with Mr. Streed, are assisted in reaching their own agreement and settlement of all Family Law related issues on their own terms.
The final outcome of the matter is put into the hands of the parties and not the court's. Mr. Streed facilitates the entire mediation process, addresses the concerns of both parties, and provides legal advice and suggestions. Once the parties come to a mutual agreement, our center will draft the required legal documents that complete your matter.
To put it simply, probate is the legal process whereby a deceased person's estate is distributed to their heirs/beneficiaries and any remaining debts are paid to creditors. A probate matter will proceed through several steps prior to the final distribution of property. If there is a will the property will be distributed according to the wishes of the decedent as set forth in the will. If there is no will the law will determine how the property is to be disbursed. With a will or without a will, probate is a very complex area of law which can quickly become quite expensive. Thus, it requires a keen knowledge of the state laws that govern this type of action. Our offices are experienced at guiding you through this emotional and difficult process to the final distribution of your loved one's property.
Our offices handle criminal matters such as traffic violations, possession of drugs and/or paraphernalia, D.U.I., and other criminal matters. If you are involved in a criminal matter you have come to the right place. Our directing attorney's background in law enforcement serves to enhance his knowledge in this area of the law.
Preparation is the key to insuring that your wishes are carried out upon your death. Too many people put these very important matters off until too late. Don't leave your loved ones with a heartbreaking and tedious mess to sort out. Our skilled estate planners can help you prepare your wills or trusts consistent with applicable law so that you can rest assured what you have worked so hard for in your life will be handled just the way you want it to in your absence.
Traditional Attorney-Client Representation
This type of representation occurs when the attorney and the client enter into a contractual agreement for continuing legal representation throughout the duration of their legal matter. All aspects of your legal matter, including communications, are handled by Mr. Streed and his staff.
Attorney Directed Paralegal Services
Attorney directed paralegal services consist of the attorney providing legal advice to the client and direction to the paralegal on matters concerning your case. The attorney also offers, within this type of representation, flat fee court appearances on the client's behalf at affordable prices. The paralegal drafts all necessary documents and forms required by the courts to handle the legal matter. Our paralegals offer the highest quality document preparation services under the supervision of the attorney.
Legal Document Preparation
Legal document preparation services differ from attorney directed paralegal services in that the attorney is not involved in any aspect of your case.
Legal document preparation services cannot, by law, provide legal advice, interpret or define the law or provide the client with direction on how to bring their matter to conclusion. Legal document preparation is provided to the client on a transactional or hourly basis based upon the type of matter and the needs of the client. This is sometimes an affordable alternative to traditional attorney-client representation. Mr. Streed offers a free initial consultation in many of these matters and is available to for future consultations at his hourly rate to further assist you throughout your legal matter.
Whichever service is best suited to your particular situation and financial position, rest assured that your legal needs will be met with skillful advice, individualized attention, and professional courtesy. Find out more by clicking below.
