Handling business disputes requires an understanding of the ebb and flow of normal business practice. No one normally enters business arrangements anticipating disputes but when a deal goes awry, there can still be peace of mind in having an advocate at your side. Whether you are seeking redress for a debt you’re owed, defending claims made against you in a court of law, or heading into mandatory mediation or arbitration under the terms of a contract you signed, Woodrum Law LLC can assist you.
The courts are meant to be accessible to the public but the complexity of legal procedure even in the discovery (information gathering) phase of a case can be daunting to someone experiencing it for the first time. Having the guidance of legal counsel can take some of the worry out of the equation so that you can either pursue a recovery or similar action against an entity that has caused you financial or physical harm or defend against such claims and be able to focus on your life instead.
What specific wishes do you have about your health care, finances, and property near and at the end of your life? Even if you don’t have specific wishes, an estate plan can help ease the stress for your loved ones so that they don’t have to worry and wonder what you would have wanted regarding things like hydration, nutrition,or resuscitation. Have you memorialized your wishes about whether you’d like to be buried or cremated. An advance directive, powers of healthcare and financial attorney, will, and a trust may be instruments to consider depending on your situation.
In family law, courts are invited into people’s lives to sort out situations as best they can with the information and legal framework of the time. Homa S. Woodrum, Esq. has experience with divorce matters (amicable and contested), annulment, child custody disputes, child support determinations, and child support enforcement cases.
Real life guardianship scenarios can feel like being thrust into works of fiction - emotions are tense and the stakes are often equally high. In the case of minor guardianship, for example, a grandparent may find that they need the legal authority to care for a grandchild while the child's parent or parents are unable to care for them. Unlike adoption, which is highly scrutinized because it involves terminating the rights of a parent, guardianship can preserve familial connections while allowing the guardian to care for the child with legal authority. When money enters the equation, the care of an individual's bank accounts, business interests, and the like fall under what Nevada courts call guardianship of the estate. Adult guardianships hinge on the incapacity of the ward, their shown inability to manage their affairs (personal and/or financial) or even can be based on their consent to receiving court supervised assistance. You do not have to face the process alone at a difficult time.
Homa immigrated to the United States of America with her family from the United Kingdom in 1986 and later would become a proud United States citizen. Her mother is originally from Germany and her father is originally from Iran and they, like many immigrants, were in pursuit of a different life. Often people can feel fearful and overwhelmed at the prospect of dealing with immigration matters - being able to know your rights and options through legal counsel is well worth your time, whether you are seeking to bring a family member to the United States, a fiance, or trying to protect your legal permanent resident status.
Naturalization is an exciting milestone for immigrants - making the United States your home can open up opportunities for you personally (such as the right to vote) as well as family (for example, a US Citizen can petition for family based immigration on behalf of their adult brothers and sisters while a legal permanent resident cannot petition for that particular category). The naturalization process includes providing the government with extensive information about you, going through an interview process, and even taking a test about your adopted country. Homa Woodrum was a volunteer with the Nevada Immigrant Resource Project (established in part with the support of Nevada's Senator Harry Reid) during her course of legal study at UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law and a large portion of the outreach performed by the students involved was naturalization training and consultations within the community. She is very proud of her own citizenship and excited to share the experience with your naturalization clients.
Probate involves the court supervised process of carrying out the estate planning wishes of the person that passed away (the decedent). Whether or not you have a will, your estate can be subjected to the probate process by which the will is proved. "Smaller" estates are streamlined under Nevada law but are no less important. Therefore, families don't often anticipate that while they are in the process of grieving, they will have to participate in legal process to wrap up the affairs of their loved one. Even uncontested probate has multiple steps to ensure proper oversight and to protect the wishes of the decedent. Call 702-825-3483 to set up a consultation or fill out the contact form below.
