What can we do for you

Business Formation

Whether you are looking to change your resident agent or start your new business from scratch, you likely don’t have the time to spare to handle business “housekeeping” matters. Counsel for business formation or maintenance is affordable and you’ll be able to share your concerns and plans for future growth to get the right fit for your business needs whether you are considering memorializing a partnership, starting a limited liability company, limited partnership, or a full corporation in Nevada. This may include drafting bylaws, articles of incorporation, corporate resolutions, minutes, operating agreements, business licensing, and more. We can also refer you to the right tax professional to advise you on tax considerations through an extensive referral network.

Business Litigation

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.

Civil Litigation

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.

Estate Planning

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.

Family Law

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.

Guardianship

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.

Immigration

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

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

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.

Homa S. Woodrum, Esq., Attorney at Law in Las Vegas, Nevada

Compassionate and Diligent Legal Representation

Homa Sayyar Woodrum has been licensed to practice law in the State of Nevada since October 2007. She graduated from the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas in May 2007 with her Juris Doctorate. Prior to law school she earned her BSBA in International Business at UNLV and has lived in Nevada since the year 2000 after relocating from Wasilla, Alaska.

Courts are (and should be) open to access by self-represented parties, and having an attorney at your side can provide peace of mind. Homa has experience as an extern with the Nevada Supreme Court during one law school semester, volunteering with the Nevada Immigrant Resource Project, and practicing guardianship, bankruptcy, and civil/business litigation in her first associate position. Prior to law school she even worked as a file clerk for a local firm and was able to participate in that capacity in a multi-district litigation matter. Prior to opening her own law firm, Woodrum Law, she primarily practiced as Of Counsel on matters involving guardianship and family law.

In 2013 Homa was inducted into Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada's "100 Hours Club" for providing over 100 hours of pro bono (free) legal services through LACSN. In 2012 she was listed on LACSN's "Honor Roll" relating to pro bono service and volunteered at their "Ask-A-Lawyer" program held at Family Court. She is also currently a member of the Clark County Bar Association, American Immigration Lawyers Association, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the Nevada State Bar Elder Law Section, Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys, and serves on the Discovery Charter School board.

Homa’s first name is a variant spelling of the Persian name for a mythical bird of paradise not unlike a phoenix. She enjoys outdoors activities like running and bicycling (though not very fast in either pursuit). She and her husband (also an attorney), have two young children. Homa is also the co-founder and co-manager of the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference and is an advocate for food allergy awareness, safety, and inclusion.
