Practice Areas

Capable and Experienced Hollister Lawyers

 

At Pipal & Spurzem, LLP, we provide experienced legal representation in a variety of legal situations. Our attorneys represent individuals, businesses, and public entities in litigation and legal transactions. We help clients with:

 

Estate Planning

 

Estate planning is a phrase used to describe the various techniques people use to transfer wealth and protect their assets when they die. We draft wills, trusts, guardianships, powers of attorney, conservatorships, advance healthcare directives, living wills, and living trusts. We also administer trusts and handle probate matters. We use tax planning techniques to limit your liability and maximize your asset protection. We are familiar with many issues in the area of elder law and we can help you with anything from a will contest and breach of fiduciary duty issues to establishing a charitable trust or passing on your business.

 

Business Transactions

 

We help clients with new business startups. We handle incorporations for limited liability companies, partnerships, corporations, family limited partnerships, and other entity formation issues. We can help you set up an unincorporated association or any other business form that will give you a chance to succeed. After the initial setup is complete, we can assist you with matters of corporate governance, commercial law, real estate and leases, contract issues and litigation, employment law concerns, and more.

 

Real Estate

 

Our Hollister lawyers handle commercial, residential and agricultural real estate issues.  Whether you need help with a buy-sell agreement, a landlord/tenant dispute, real estate development, broker/agent liability or a commercial lease, we can help you.

 

Family Law

Family law situations are often very personal and emotionally difficult.  Clients are faced with an unfamiliar legal system at one of the most difficult times of their lives.  We help clients deal with situations involving divorce, child custody and support, spousal support, co-parenting, legal separations, annulments, prenuptial agreements, paternity, post decree modifications, domestic violence issues, and more. We understand that these sensitive issues can be legally complex and potentially expensive, and we can help you find a solution to fit your particular circumstances.  We emphasize neutral divorce mediation as the preferred way to resolve your difficult legal issues in a timely and efficient manner and to plan for complicated division of assets.

 

General Litigation

Our practice includes general civil, business, real estate and probate litigation services. We assist clients with issues ranging from breach of contract, landlord/tenant, trust and probate litigation, to criminal defense.  We have extensive trial experience and we know how to prepare a case for judge and jury.
