"Establishing and running a business - whether for-profit
 or not-for-profit - is a continuing creative process."
  - Dennis Metnick  

If you are starting a business, you want to establish the proper legal footing right at the beginning. The Metnick Law Office can help you identify and assess the available options and evaluate which one is most appropriate for you.

Attorney Metnick and his staff will research your chosen industry, help you decide which is the best business form for you, provide corporate planning and guidance, and offer counsel and assistance in drafting contracts and agreements. As your business grows, we provide services to keep your profit-making enterprise on a healthy growth track. We will work with you to help your business run better, more efficiently, and more profitably.

If you are establishing a non-profit business, we will guide you through the process of establishing a tax-exempt organization. We will continue to advise you on the requirements that must be fulfilled in order to maintain your organization's 501(c)(3) status. The Metnick Law Office has extensive experience with non-profits and can guide you through start-up and operations with an understanding of your objectives and goals.

We will work with your broker, your mortgage company, your surveyor and your title company to make sure they do what must be done to protect your important investment. If you want to be sure all the documents involved will protect your interest, and that all your I's are dotted and your T's are crossed, contact the Metnick Law Office.

Our law firm also works with land developers to make sure all zoning, financing, and title requirements are met. If you need an experienced real estate lawyer for closings, negotiation, or property development legal matters, contact us.


Wills and Probate

Will.jpgWhether you have property and/or dependents or not, you need a will to make certain there are no misunderstandings about how you want that property distributed or how you want your dependents cared for. Have you thought about a living will, health care proxy, or durable power of attorney, and the way they can simplify the planning of your estate, no matter how big or small? At the Metnick Law Office, we understand the importance of these issues and can offer insights and experience. We will ensure that documents are drafted to meet your specific desires and needs.

The Metnick Law Office can guide you through the complex process of probating an estate to make sure it meets all legal requirements. If you need a will or if you need someone to handle estate probate, contact us today.
