There are many ways to resolve legal issues. Only 3% to 5% of legal cases actually go to a trial. That means that most are settled out of court by negotiations, mediations, arbitration, collaboration, and many other dispute resolution methods. Each of these methods have rules of procedures and evidence just like litigation along with all the normal court rules. I can help you by representing you in today's legal system either as an attorney or the mediator.

If you still have issues that you need to discuss with a 3rd-party, mediation is a good process for many cases. It usually costs less than litigation and can prevent many of the emotionally draining aspects of the legal system, because the parties are deciding it and not the Judge or legal system. An attorney is still very useful in this process.
If you want to keep most of the facts and actions out of court and the public, the parties can agree to collaboration or arbitration. If your situation needs a complex multi-step process with the assistance of attorneys and keeping everything still private, collaborative law could be the best option. This is similar to mediation, but all parties must have attorneys along with other case specific professionals to guide the process.
Trial strategy starts with comparing the elements of the law to the provable facts. The pre-trial discovery process is planned for any missing pieces. It also goes into the type of trial and jury.
The discovery process allows for requesting documents, issuing subpoenas, asking questions, performing depositions, hiring investigators, and other methods to obtain evidence for trial.
Trial preparation starts from day one. How to understand the questions asked helps with answering the questions. What to expect during the trial relieves anxiety and allows for mental preparation.

Wills, trusts, and estates is the area of the law that covers estate planning and the probate of an estate after someone dies. A well-drafted, comprehensive estate plan goes a long way toward avoiding a long, drawn out, and costly probate process upon the death of the testator. A better understanding of the estate planning strategies and tools available may help an individual understand what estate planning can accomplish. Likewise, with a better understanding of the probate process an individual typically gains incentive to create a thorough estate plan with the assistance of the attorneys at the Robinson Law.
Estate planning provides the legal framework necessary to manage wealth during the lifetime of an individual and then pass down that wealth after death.

Some common estate planning goals include:

One of the most common secondary goals of estate planning is probate avoidance. Probate is the legal process that an estate must pass through after the death of the estate owner. The purpose of probate is to locate and value assets owned by the decedent at the time of death, pay creditors of the estate (including the federal and state government), and effectuate the legal transfer of estate assets to the intended beneficiaries or legal heirs of the estate. Even a relatively small estate can take months, even years, to conclude the probate process. The larger the estate, the longer the probate process will take if the decedent failed to leave behind a thorough estate plan aimed at decreasing the estate’s exposure to probate.
