When people travel to new and different places, they will often use a guide to help them get to where they want to go. In the exploration of the US, when the west was a vast wilderness, explorers used native guides. If you are a fisherman exploring new waters, you may hire a local guide to get you to the right part of the stream where the fish are found, and what fly or bait to use. When traveling to Europe, you might go on a Rick Steves tour. For many people, the legal landscape is a new and different place - unlike any place they have ever visited. There are unknowns: The language is different. The protocol is different. There may be tiger trapsor other pitfalls. As lawyers, we are your guide. If a loved one has died, we guide you through the process of settling the estate and if necessary, navigating the court system. If you are buying or selling a business or real estate, we guide you through the transaction, pointing out things you might not have considered, and steering you around

Cost Is Not A Consideration for Organ or Tissue Donation At any time during your life, you can choose to become an organ and tissue donor. This is a personal decision that you should take time to carefully consider. While there are many valid considerations to weigh, cost is not one. A common misconception is that your estate will get stuck with a bill for the charges related to removal procedure. This is not true. Neither the family of the deceased nor the estate of the deceased will bear any cost for the removal procedure. ALL costs related to donation are paid by the organ/tissue recovery agencies or the transplant center, including the charges for the operating room and surgeon. On the flipside, the decedents family and estate will not be compensated for donation, because it is gift and compensation is prohibited under National Organ Transplant Act. Your Attorney and Physician serve as excellent resources for learning more about the decision to become a donor and how to accomplish
