Feeling alone, angry, confused, abandoned, scared and frightened by your legal problem? Your well-being is my number one priority. Attorney Lisa Christensen's mission is to help you along the way during the entire legal process from beginning until end.
At the Christensen Law Firm, we believe your attorney should be one that listens to you and breaks down complex legal concepts into easy to understand terms. Attorney Lisa Christensen will assess your legal issue and tell you at the outset whether it is worth your while to obtain legal assistance and/or pursue legal action. If you are unlikely to prevail, or if the benefits of obtaining legal assistance do not clearly outweigh the costs, you will not need to incur unnecessary time and expense. If legal action or assistance is necessary, Attorney Lisa Christensen will evaluate all aspects of your situation with you, explain your options and what to expect at every step, and will take any action necessary to ensure that your legal rights are fully assessed and protected-- researching the law, interviewing witnesses, collecting records, conferring with expert consultants, planning legal strategy, preparing and filing necessary paperwork, and negotiating with insurers and opposing counsel -- all with an eye toward ensuring the best possible outcome for your legal issue.
Marriages may be legally ended in one of two ways--divorce or dissolution of marriage. A dissolution can be granted when the parties agree on all issues such as parental rights and responsibilities, the distribution of all marital property, debts, and obligations. A divorce is necessary when the parties require the assistance of the court to determine one or more issues in dispute.
Issues surrounding children -- custody and support in particular -- can be some of the most contentious elements in a divorce, but it serves your kids best if you can work things out. Additionally, as your child grows, a parenting plan my require changes. Parties may require the assistance of the court to modify or refine the agreement to best meet the needs of a minor or dependent child.
Wills are essential, simple documents that everyone should have. Trusts can be drafted in addition to wills and serve more complex estate-planning needs. Property and other assets can be placed in the trust to shield them from taxes and from probate, the lengthy and expensive court process by which wills are executed. Set up an appointment to discuss your unique planning needs.
When someone dies, some of their property may have been determined by a contract or other written documentation. In other cases, some property may need to be transferred through Probate Court proceedings.
Attorney Lisa Christensen can help to sort through the paperwork and probate court proceedings to make sure that the heirs and beneficiaries are appropriately recognized under Ohio laws.
