There are advantages to using a mid-sized law firm like Mario, Gunde, Peters, Rhoden & Kelley, LLC. We can offer a range of services from attorneys who concentrate in particular areas. Frequently when clients come to us for one immediate and particular problem they end up needing a range of services.
For example, say a married couple get into an argument that gets out of hand. The police are called and someone gets arrested and charged with battery. Our firm has criminal attorneys experienced in Jury Trials from simple battery all the way up to Death Penalty cases.
When there has been an arrest for a domestic violence battery frequently one spouse will file a Petition for Injunction, sometimes known as a restraining order. An injunction hearing is a civil action but blends criminal and divorce law together. You need an attorney who is experienced in both areas.
With a battery and injunction frequently comes a divorce. In fact, an Injunction is often the opening move in a planned divorce. Our attorneys have decades of experience handling Injunction and divorces.
When people have been arrested, or are undergoing a divorce they are under stress. Sometimes they are not thinking clearly and drink too much, then drive, and end up arrested for DUI. Once again, our firm has attorneys who know how to help you. Over the years our attorneys have tried hundreds of DUI cases. Avoiding a DUI or other mistakes is important while in a divorce situation. We counsel our clients on how to avoid common mistakes so you do not have to add to your problems.
Divorces can contribute to the decision to file for bankruptcy. Finances that may have been shaky may crumble under the stress of divorce. Divorce and the surrounding circumstances, such as there now being two separate households to support, can be expensive. When looking at the end result of a divorce, bankruptcy can be a valuable tool to help you get a fresh financial stunt.
Your Will may leave all of your assets to your now former spouse. This includes even your non-marital assets. Your spouse may have a Power of Attorney allowing them to transfer your assets. The time to change your Will and other important documents is when you first decide your assets should go to someone else. This can be before a divorce even starts. Death can strike at any time and your assets will be disposed of according to your will.
