It could be a disagreement over a boundary line, a non-competition agreement with a salesperson, a disagreeement involving a will or really any matter important to you where the law is involved. We’ve fought the wars and negotiated the peace in thousands of cases for the past nearly 20 years and we more than know our way around.

Wills and Estate Planning

It’s important to plan for your property and personal matters, not just how they’ll be handled when you die, but also how they will be handled during your lifetime. When you work with McKee Law to develop your estate plan, we will prepare more than a will for you.  We also discuss powers of attorney and healthcare directives, important pieces of your plan. We will have detailed discussions with you to understand your assets, as well as your family, and help you develop a plan.  Based on our years of experience, we will counsel you to help make thoughtful decisions, considering all of the possibilities, something you don’t get from online will drafters.  Once the decisions are made, we’ll draft the necessary documents to put it into place.  Planning ahead for these things is the best gift you can offer to your loved ones.

Real Estate

At McKee Law we stand ready to help you with your real estate needs.  We can help you with commercial sales and leases, obtaining financing, and reviewing title to property.  We can also assist you when you are selling residential property.  Give us a call, and we’ll try to simplify the sometimes (unnecessarily) confusing aspects of real estate.

Business/Commercial Law

Business Formation

At McKee Law we’ve helped hundreds of entrepreneurs get started in business.  We want to learn about your budget and your business so that we can help you choose the form of entity best suited for you, create the entity, and build a solid foundation to help you be successful. We will work with your accountant and insurance agent, and make sure you have appropriate documents in place, all to help you minimize your risk while you grow.  These things may change over time, but they are critical to have in place at the beginning before problems arise.

General Counsel

Most small businesses don’t have the need for a full-time lawyer on staff. The luxury of our services is that it’s almost like you do!  We pride ourselves on knowing you and your business, helping you to identify issues before they become a problem.  And because we create trusting relationships before problems arise, we are better able to step in and assist you when you need us. We can also help you with your contracts, leases, employment matters and government compliance.

Mergers and Acquisitions

If you are looking to sell your business, or acquire another one, we can help you identify a strategy, perform due diligence, choose a structure, build a roadmap, and implement your choices.  There are many moving pieces, and we are happy to focus on the legal aspects so that you can focus on what you do best.
