Ms. Agnoli can assist you through DUI cases, bringing valuable familiarity with the court system, knowledge of plea bargain details, and the ability to navigate complex administration procedures.
Ms Agnoli listens to each client's concerns and helps plan for life, deal with death, preserve wealth, and protect inheritances. Clients engage her guidance when planning for the two most important aspects of their lives: Everything they own and everyone they love.
Wills and trusts - A will or trust can ensure that you leave loved ones properly cared for, prevent disagreements among possible heirs and prevent unnecessary attorney fees from eating away at your estate.
Powers of Attorney - Powers of Attorney allow you to designate another person to deal with your assets while you are alive. A Power of Attorney can be useful if you are traveling, unavailable, disabled, or otherwise unable to make financial transactions on your own.
Advance health care directives - An "advance health care directive" lets your physician, family and friends know your health care preferences, including the types of special treatment you want or don't want at the end of life, your desire for diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and organ donation.
Divorce - Getting a divorce can have serious, long-term effects, both emotionally and legally. There are also strict legal requirements that cover everything from choosing a method of legal separation, to selecting where and how to file, to deciding how the property should be divided.
Marital settlement agreements - A marital settlement agreement spells out the terms of the divorce and the relationship between the two spouses after the divorce.
Child custody - Whether you’re recently separated and looking to learn the basics of types of custody or you’ve had an open case for years that needs modifications due to life changes, Ms. Agnoli can provide experience and assistance.
Property division - The easiest way to deal with property division during a divorce is to decide how to divide the property up amongst yourselves. However, because most divorcing couples aren't able to amicably decide how to deal with divorce property division issues, however, the matter often ends up in court.
Adoption - Whether you adopt a child within your state or from another country, the process is governed by corresponding laws and regulations. And while the regulations and standards for adoption vary greatly from one country to another, each state in the U.S. also has its own slight variations in how adoptions are conducted.
Pre-nuptial agreements - Premarital agreements are a common legal step taken before marriage. A prenup establishes the property and financial rights of each spouse in the event of a divorce.
Mediation - Mediation can be a cost-effective and timely way to solve problems without the hassle and expense of litigation. It also tends to allow people to craft creative solutions that both parties can live with – rather than having a judge or jury decide for you. Learn more about mediation ››
Business consulting - Ms. Agnoli represents business, business owners, and entreprenurs in both transactional matters and disputes in court. She will develop a long-term relationship with you and can help foresee, prevent, and solve problems for the life of your business.
Contracts - All businesses inherently deal with contracts; even if they are unwritten, as with many transactions involving goods or services. Since a contract is a legally binding agreement, and even an honest contractual mistake can cause serious problems, it is crucial that small business owners have at least a basic understanding of contract law.
Partnership agreements - Drafting effective agreements is essential for any potential business dispute or dissolution that may occur down the road. We try to prevent business litigation in the future by anticipating problems today.
Negotiation - Negotiation can replace costly litigation in resolving disputes. Negotiation proceedings are informal, inexpensive, and much less stressful then a lawsuit. Both sides can talk freely about their differences without involving other people. Even if a lawsuit is pending, negotiations between parties often take place continually (to reach a settlement).
Incorporation and LLC formations - Ms. Agnoli provides formation advice for corporations, LLCs and partnerships. She advises clients on the various types of legal entities and evaluate which options will work best for the situation.
Compliance - Ms. Agnoli assists business clients in protecting their businesses from exposure to the risk of criminal liability that lies in not implementing effective and coordinated legal compliance policies and procedures.
Easements - An easement is a legal right to use someone else’s land for a particular purpose. It is especially important to consult with an experienced attorney if there is nothing in writing (for example, in a deed or title papers) about the easement.
Boundary disputes - Good neighbors go a long way towards enjoying your home and real property, and conflicts can make property ownership equally unpleasant. A boundary dispute may be a question of confusion or uncertainty, or a true disagreement about ownership and the property line. There are different types of boundary disputes, and legal approaches to solve the problem.
Partnership agreements - Whenever unmarried partners purchase real estate, a partnership agreement is a must. The partnership agreement spells out what happens during the course of ownership, who owns what, and what happens to the asset once the property is sold.
Grant deeds - A grant deed is a document wherein an owner grants title to real property to another person. Whether you are the grantor creating the deed, or a grantee receiving the property, Ms. Agnoli can assist with negotiation and keep you informed of your rights, duties, and risks in relation to the transfer.
Landlord/tenant disputes - Landlord/tenant disputes can pop up over many different issues including lease agreements, tenant rights, responsibility for repairs to the property, rent, eviction and more.
Unlawful detainer actions - Courts commonly refer to eviction actions as "forcible entry and detainer" or "unlawful detainer" actions.
