Real Estate Transactions
Whether residential or commercial, for the tenant's rights or a landlord's evictions, property is the name of the game and no matter what end of the spectrum you are on, we are right in the middle ensuring that your interests are protected. No transaction is too big or too small to escape becoming adversely impacted, which can easily happen without the proper legal representation. Here at the firm, we know the ropes, which can save you a lot of sleepless nights and that's valued service.
Estate Planning is a plan that you divise, with the help of your attorney, to care for you and your loved ones, presently and for future generations. The properly executed estate plan provides your loved ones with detailed instructions for managing your assets and affairs should you become unable to do so for yourself and for when you pass away. Both are events we rarely want to think about but can and do eventually occur.
Why should you invest in having an estate plan...
There are two good reasons for that. Having an estate plan puts you in charge of your assets and finances. The estate plan lets everyone know what your wishes are, sparing your loved ones and the court the time, energy, expense and quite often the confusion of managing your affairs for you.
Can't a spouse or adult children automatically take over for me ...
NO. The courts have strict procedures as to how your assets will be managed and/or distributed in the event you are no longer able to do so for yourself and you have not left specific instructions as to how you want matters handled.
What do I need to get started....
Make an appointment with an attorney at the firm, where we can properly execute all of the documents you need to rest assured your estate will be properly handled, according to your wishes.
What documents will I need....
Each individual is unique and we handle each situation according to the individual's needs and wishes. You may elect to have a will, power of attorney, living will, trust; one of these, none of these or all of the above. Our commitment to you is to take the time to decide with you, what is best for you. In the end, you will be glad you did.
Commercial Transaction & Litigation
Whether it's drafting contract language, negotiating a settlement or going to trial, we at the firm of Charles Leonard Mitchell Esquire are ready to go the distance for you.
Our approach to drafting agreements is to not only create an executable contract that will prevent litigation but one that will also include before hand, the appropriate remedies should there be a breach. That's what we call foresight; it's what you will call valued service.
Precise planning in the beginning saves money and time in the end, which is why we say, before you sign on the dotted line, consult your lawyer.
Mr. Mitchell's savvy approach towards conducting settlement negotiations has made our clients very happy; and when you're happy, we're happy. New York courts often encourage parties to settle their disputes and this is where we do our best work. With a deep desire to see you win, we're ready to secure the best possible outcome for you.
However, we know that disputes can reach a level where it isn't in your best interest to settle for anything less than you deserve, and in those instances, the firm is always ready to provide a thoughtful analysis in determining your damages, what you are entitled to and then act aggressively in reaching our goal. We push hard and don't take no for an answer until we obtain a favorable judgment; that's valued service.
