As a foundation of our business practice, we focus on the specific needs of Non-Profits and Churches. We give Churches and Non-Profits the information necessary to form and correctly govern entities to be in compliance with the Internal Revenue Service and their many regulations in this area. We have had a 100% success rate in obtaining Exemption Status for our Non-Profits from the Internal Revenue Service. We also serve as an ongoing Counselor for those entities who need our services after the formation stage.
Business Formation and Representation
Thinking of starting a business. Our firm is unique in that we utilize the services of a litigation business minded attorney as well as an in house CPA to provide advice as to what business entity choice provides you with the best options. We can help you know how to start your business soundly and combine asset protection planning with sound financial and tax strategies.
Most of us who find ourselves faced with court have never been there before and that is why we are here for you. The words court, trial, and litigation are fearsome words, but we are here to stand in the gap for you and be your shield with character, courage, and commitment. We have represented thousands of people and businesses to success whether it was in the Municipal Criminal Courts or the Alabama Supreme Court. This is who we are and it is what we do, and that is to serve and protect you.
Probate, Wills, & Trust
We concentrate a vast amount of our skills and resources probating estates. This is obviously a difficult period in your life and we are here to help you through the difficult and enigmatic probate process. We are unique in that we employ an in house accountant/C.P.A. to assist in those areas where only an accountant can make sense of the numbers. We have probated international estates and we have participated in hotly contested estates on behalf of our people. Tenacity and results have been the hallmarks of our Probate Practice.
We also engage in a full range of Estate Planning from simple Wills to Complex Living Trusts (ABC Trusts), Testamentary Trusts, ILITS (Insurance Preservation Trusts), Qualified Plan Trusts, QTIPS and more. We are affiliated with the Estate Plan.
Although we formerly devoted a vast amount of our resources to a full range of family law issues we have since narrowed our focus to adoptions issues only in our family law division. This is probably the most rewarding area of law. We have done adoptions that have literally saved children from abuse, neglect, abandonment, abortion, and even being sold. We have even had the privilege of doing the pre-birth adoption of triplets. We love children and have committed ourselves to their defense even when it took us to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals.
