Taylor, Deacon, and James Law Practices

We practice specific areas of law and can handle any situation or request that falls into these categories.

Real Estate Law

real estate law

Real estate law covers the rights to possess, use, and enjoy land and the additions attached to it. These cases can involve relations between owners, owners and the community, and landlord and tenant relations. Laws vary by region. Matters often involve mortgages, re-financing, residential sale and purchase agreements, and disputes over taxes, boundaries, and permits.

Wills and Estate

family estate planning

A will is a set of instructions you or a loved one creates to explain how you want your property to be distributed after your death. You often need witnesses to the creation of your will. We teach you how to write one and advise how best to distribute items of an estate. We can also help with estate sales and the selling of a family member’s home after their passing. You can write a living will, which is recommended. Although the ideas surrounding creating a will can be difficult to think about, it is better to be prepared and once it’s done, you won’t have to worry about it anymore. A will can be updated and changed at any time.

Family Law

family law

Family law involves cases and situations between a married couple and case involving minors. Divorce is a common part of family law and is a long and complex process. Depending on the reason, whether or not children are involved, and how assets are to be distributed are all factors on how long the case will take. Domestic violence cases are sensitive and not to be taken lightly. We deal with those cases as well and ensure the safety of each person involved and that the right measures are taken to separate the abuser from the victim. We can also provide pre and post nuptial agreements for the security and peace of mind of couples. We handle adoption cases and look out for the safety and well being of the child during this transitional period. We do our best to get your adoptive child home to you as soon as possible. Child abuse and neglect cases are part of the family law practices and we have people who know how to work with children and be sensitive to their needs in difficult times.

These are our main practice areas and we welcome questions and inquires at any time.
