We represent clients in all aspects of family law. We welcome all types of clients and families, including married couples, unmarried parents, and same-sex couples. Foddrill Law Firm works with individuals in dissolution (divorce), child custody, paternity, adoption, child support, common-law marriage, and modifications of previous decrees.
We also work with clients in a collaborative, low confrontational manner when the parties prefer to settle their family planning matters in a fair and equitable way.
REAL PROPERTY & LANDLORD TENANT
We assist clients in both commercial and residential real estate transactions. We are prepared to represent your interests in negotiating sales, purchases, and leases, preparing documents, resolving title issues and other related matters. We rely on expertise in business planning, contract law, real estate finance, land use and litigation.
In addition to the sales contract, We can prepare all the documents necessary to complete the transaction. We work with most lenders and financial institutions in preparing these documents, and the closing can usually be handled in my office.
Finally, the legal relationship between landlords and tenants can be very complex. From preparing, reviewing and negotiating leases to terminating a tenancy and even eviction, We can help landlords and tenants protect their rights at every step along the way.
We represent homeowners. We defend homeowners' rights to keep their home. If you are in foreclosure or have missed payments, you need an attorney to represent you against the banks. We may be able to delay the foreclosure process, and essentially provide you an opportunity to rectify your predicament. We can offer our skills and knowledge to show you alternatives to foreclosure. We can assist you with loan modifications, deeds in lieu of foreclosure, and short sales.
Probate is the court-supervised process of administering the estate of a deceased person, which includes paying off debts and distributing property to heirs. We help surviving family members settle your loved one's debts and distribute their assets after they're gone, with or without a will.
Estate planning is the process through which a person plans for what will happen to their family and possessions in the event of death or disability. We assist clients with their estate planning needs by drafting wills, trusts, guardianship, powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, directives to physicians, living wills, pre- and post- nuptial agreements and other similar legal documents.
