Domestic Relations Cases typically begin with an initial telephone intake, followed by an initial office meeting. A Domestic Relations Questionnaire for that that first meeting can be downloaded right here from our website Resources section. We represent equal numbers of men and women, and have broad experience in cases involving children. We practice in all the courts of New Hampshire both for trials and appeals. Retainers are required in all domestic relations cases, the amount of which varies depending on the case. The retainer and payment arrangements are discussed fully with you and written in an agreement for you and us to sign. Rates for staff in domestic relations case are hourly according to a schedule given to you as part of your retainer agreement. We also offer advice for litigants in family law who wish to advocate their own cases in court without an attorney present but who wish to have help drafting pleadings or deciding how to present their own cases to court.
Estate Planning matters typically begin with us reviewing your Estate Planning Questionnaire which can simply be downloaded right here from our website Resources section. You can mail or email that to us and we’ll get started. We’ll review your completed questionnaire and make recommendations on what estate documents are needed for your goals in the most economical manner possible. Then we’ll prepare those documents, schedule a meeting for you to review them, answer any remaining questions you have, and sign those with the necessary witnesses to make them legal.
Probate Practice involves work with the estates of people who have died. We represent executors chosen in a decedent’s Will, as well as administrators of estates without a will. We carefully advise on all the requirements for fiduciaries, deal with creditors and claims of the decedent’s estate, and prepare all the accountings and reports necessary for distributing the assets.
For the convenience of our clients, we are available on weekday evenings and weekends by appointment.
