Wills & Estates

Estate Planning is the process of making advance decisions regarding the disposition of your estate (real and personal property, assets, liabilities and debts, etc.) in the event of your incapacitation or death. These decisions can also include naming a guardian for minor children, supporting institutions that promote your values, or providing for family members with special needs. These ends may be accomplished with documents as simple as a Last Will and Testament or Healthcare Directive, or might require the creation of a trust.

Probate occurs when the family presents a loved one’s will to the Court for legal disposition of the estate. The process requires identification of assets and liabilities, potential creditors and heirs.

BLF combines a passion for helping others and legal know-how to provide clients with one-of-a-kind estate plans. When a plan requires action, BLF executes as necessary and allows its clients to enjoy peace of mind.

Business Services & Intellectual Property

Starting and managing a business is at times both a joy and a burden. From choosing the proper legal status to registering with the Secretary of State, starting a business presents legal challenges and procedures that can overwhelm. BLF is equipped to consult with you regarding your business model and goals, and to provide the necessary legal counsel and representation to get you on your way to success. BLF provides, among other services, Secretary of State registration and incorporation compliance assistance, contract drafting and review, employee handbook creation, and partnership agreements/non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

Intellectual Property is the body of law that encompasses Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights. Trademarks are those logos and other markings which help promote brand identity. Copyrights are original works written or composed by a creator. These types of works are protected by various federal and state laws. The first step to enforcement of these protections is to register your work, whether it be a Trademark or Copyright. BLF helps clients with the registration process, and, in doing so, brings value to the created work.

Property Law

Owning property is the cornerstone of a free society. Being a landowner comes with many responsibilities, including protecting land from encroachment, destruction, and disputed title. Many of these actions can be avoided by securing a proper survey, reviewing the title history of the property, and receiving a valid deed from the legal owner. When it is time to purchase a new piece of property or real estate, convey your current property to another, or protect your right to possession, BLF has the resources and experience to help each step of the way.

Personal Injury

No one plans on getting hurt, but it happens. While health insurance can cover many costs associated with bodily injury, often it isn’t enough. You can lose time at work, the ability to play with your children and grandchildren, or the enjoyment of small activities like going for a walk. When you have suffered an injury due to the negligence or recklessness of others, you have a right to be made whole. BLF combines experience and determination to represent your best interests in personal injury litigation. Pass us the torch and focus on what matters most: healing.
