Business/Transactional Law

Business Lawyer

Every contract you come across needs to be modified specifically for you and your circumstances before you sign the dotted line. The form contracts widely circulated on the internet or within large businesses can often leave you unprotected. The notion that you are saving time and money by re-purposing a contract originally drafted for someone else will quickly be regretted when that generic contract opens you up to liability, years in court, and thousands upon thousands of wasted money.

Another common pitfall is not thinking you need representation in a "friendly deal." Trust me, everyone self-deals.  When you are ready to leave your front door open while you sleep, then you ready to sign a contract without representation. Even if it's just a quick review, you need someone in your corner.

Reno Property/Real Estate Law

Real Estate

With the value of homes rising, it is too risky to leave a sale of your home only in the hands of form contracts recycled by brokerages and addendums written by people who are not lawyers. With escrows closing in record times, this often results in things left undone. Heather is a residential and commercial real estate lawyer you can trust to thoroughly explain Reno property and HOA law so there aren't any surprises.

Additionally, if you are a seller who already has a buyer, you can always skip the real estate commissions and Heather can draft your purchase agreement and send you right off to escrow, saving you tens of thousands of dollars.

Trusts, Wills, and Power of Attorney Drafting

 Trusts and Estates Lawyer

No one wants to talk about it, but precautions have to be made. If they are not, your assets and money can be wasted languishing in probate court. Heather is a local trusts and estates lawyer who can make this process seamless and efficient, even coming to the home or facility of your loved ones who may be unable to travel. She can complete the drafting of these items in only a few days at a fraction of the cost of other lawyers in town. Even if you have very little to your name, you at least need some winding up. Heather can sit down with you and go over the best documents suited for your situation, even if it is just a health care directive to allow your family or close friend to make decisions for you when you cannot. The unfortunate truth is that with medical advances, our bodies are living longer than our brains. That is why these documents are necessary, in the event we may suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's. Heather can draft these Power of Attorney documents for your loved ones before they lose cognition, saving thousands of dollars on unnecessary guardianship proceedings.

Talk to a Heather to prevent unrecoverable damages from leaving your assets unprotected, to square away guardianship for your children, and to keep your property from probate.
