Sometimes you hear terrible stories about divorce cases. Other times you hear the process went rather smoothly. Usually, the difference depends upon the mindset of the parties. The following are three routes that divorce cases typically follow. Collaborative Divorce: Divorce is rarely a pleasant experience for clients. However, a lot can be done to reduce the pain and the cost if the parties can agree to cooperate. One way to do this is to agree to what we call a “collaborative divorce”. Our office provides this service, which means that we do not represent either party.

Seek Legal Advice First: Benjamin Franklin said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As attorneys, it always amazes us how often people seek our help after a problem arises, when they could have avoided the problem if they had consulted us first. This happens in business disputes, divorces, real estate matters and even personal injury cases. It is understandable that folks don’t like to spend money on legal fees, especially when they think they can handle the matter themselves. Unfortunately, it will likely be much more expensive when things don’t turn out how they planned. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?: When two or more people decide to go into business together, there is often lots…Read More

Dealing With Disputes: It is not uncommon to find ourselves in disputes with others in this modern world. If you have a business, you might be in a dispute with a customer or another business. If you are involved in an accident, you may be in a dispute as to who caused it or the extent of the injuries. If you own a home, you may be in a dispute with a neighbor about noise or trees or who knows what. The potential for disputes is endless. The question becomes, if we can’t resolve the dispute, what happens next? Unfortunately, for many people the answer to that is to sue or be sued. Have You Been Damaged?: Lawsuits can be…Read More

Statutes of Limitations: You have probably heard of this funny phrase, “Statute of Limitations”, but chances are you don’t know what it means. However, it is an important legal concept to understand, especially if you are ever involved in a legal matter. Basically, a statute of limitation refers to a law (a “statute”) that says how much time a person has to assert a right. If you don’t assert your rights before the deadline prescribed by the law, you may well be out of luck. Common Events Where Statutes of Limitations Arise: If you are involved in any sort of dispute – with a neighbor, or a business, or a landlord for example – you only have a certain amount…Read More

Setting Up Your Business: At Anthem Law we have helped thousands set up their business in the form of a limited liability company or a corporation. The reason one should operate a business as an LLC or corporation is to protect your personal assets from the liabilities of the business. If you don’t form a legal entity and you conduct business as one person you are a sole proprietorship; if you conduct business with two or more people as owners, you are probably a partnership or some other informal entity. But all of your personal assets will be exposed to the liabilities of the business, such as breach of contract, personal injury, etc. Whether an LLC or a corporation is…Read More

Funding Your Trust: We often see articles written about living trusts and why they are a good idea. While this is true, because a living trust is the best way to avoid probate when you die, we also see many cases where people get a living trust but then fail to properly manage it. The first example of this is a failure to “fund the trust”. What do we mean by that? Well, it is possible to create a perfectly legal and valid living trust, sign it and then file it away. However, if you don’t transfer your assets into the trust, then you simply have an empty, unfunded trust. If that remains the case upon your death then your…Read More

A boat is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors. People often save money for years to purchase the boat of their dreams. When they purchase the boat, they need to consider more than the purchase. It’s important to think about liability in case of a boat accident. Accidents are always a possibility and if someone is injured or someone’s property is destroyed, the boat owner may have significant financial liability. If the law determines that neglect is involved, the accident could easily bankrupt someone without proper insurance coverage and good legal representation. Most boat accidents are caused by predictable situations. The United States Coast Guard monitors boating accidents and has identified common causes. Reckless and careless actions account for…Read More

When a driver who is underage for drinking then drinks and drives, that driver will end up with more than just the ticket and the DWI on the driving record. Also, there are different penalties in each state which deal with underage drinking and driving. In most of the states if the underaged driver has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.02% or higher, he or she can be charged with a DUI. In some states; however, there is a zero tolerance level which means no amount of alcohol is tolerated in the system of an underage driver. There are also other penalties involved besides the DUI in most states. The underage driver can be charged up to $2,500 in…Read More

Intellectual property is a term that is used a lot in business law but what does it really mean? How does it apply to your company and what issues do you need to be concerned about? There are a wide variety of examples of intellectual property, which are products that are created by the mind rather than by the hands. Examples include graphic design, writing, music, phrases and a wide variety of other artistic works. Tangible inventions like software, equipment and other products you can touch or see are easy to view as creations.
