The most common comment I get from many clients who come into my office is, "I feel so much better after talking to you." Sometimes, getting answers to your questions and having a direction to go in gives you the ability to rest more easily, even if it feels like your world is crumbling around you.
My name is Michael A. Richardson, and my job as a lawyer is to give you that peace of mind and to guide you through the legal process toward your goals. I help people with the following legal issues:
I can help you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We will discuss the exempt property you will be allowed to keep and whether or not you can keep your home as part of a bankruptcy. All of the forms and worksheets you will need are available here.
I help couples who have uncontested divorces and who are interested in adopting a child.
Whether you are buying or selling a home, I can help you get all of your paperwork in order and be prepared for the closing. For those who are purchasing, I sell title insurance.
When a loved one dies, you need a lawyer to navigate the probate system. I can probate a will and help you distribute your loved one's property and assets according to his or her wishes. If your loved one dies without a will, I can help you handle the intestate estate.
Setting up an estate plan is one of the most generous things you can do for your family. I can help you draft a will, set up many different kinds of trusts, create a living will or draft durable powers of attorney.
