We're here to assist when life’s expected and unexpected legal events occur. The American legal system is complicated. Thousands of new laws and procedures are drafted annually, and many affect the workforce, including:
 
  • Mortgage companies that sell trust deeds and force foreclosures
  • Student loans which sell loan paper and lose track of borrowers
  • Relatives who die without proper estate planning and end up leaving their assets to the state, instead of their heirs
  • Home construction defects increase and builders who refuse to fix these problems
