Everyday Reasons To Call Your Attorney

"I'm calling my attorney!"

When you hear the above phrase in movies or the media, it's often sensationalized, used as a threat, or only uttered in extreme circumstances. As a result, many people mistakenly assume that they should only reach out to an attorney at the Lake of the Ozarks in times of crisis. While it is true that having an attorney on your side during an extreme situation is valuable, you don't have to limit your contact with your attorney to these scenarios. In fact, there are many everyday situations where an attorney's counsel can be helpful. O'Donnell Law Center is here to provide a few examples.


Hiring And Managing Employees

As a business owner, ensuring that the proper steps are taken when hiring employees is essential. In order to protect your company's interests, you'll want to ensure that every detail receives proper attention. As your trusted business legal team, we can help you draft solid employee agreements and non-compete agreements. We can also review a prospective employee's existing non-compete to ensure that you are not taking an unnecessary risk by hiring him or her. Should challenges with your employees arise down the road, we can help you enforce your agreements.

Making End-Of-Life Preparations

Though few of us want to think about it, none of us will live forever. At a certain point, it is important to set aside some time to make the necessary end-of-life preparations. An estate planning lawyer at the Lake of the Ozarks can help you weigh the various pros and cons to determine what documents and overall estate planning format will best suit your needs. O'Donnell Law Center prepares wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, healthcare directives, and more.

Outlining Child Custody Agreements

With the divorce in America rate hovering around 50%, approximately half of all parents in the U.S. have to address custody laws in some way or another. Our family lawyer in Osage Beach MO can help you navigate this sometimes challenging and often emotional process. We have work for individuals going through a divorce to help secure custody arrangements that protect the children's best interests. We also have experience working with unmarried couples and individuals who wish to adopt a child, and grandparents who wish to become their grandchildren's legal guardians. 

Buying A Home

Home hunting is an exciting process, but it is also a critical turning point in one's life. Since your home is likely the biggest investment you will make in your life, it is important to ensure that your interests are protected. Your Lake of the Ozarks real estate attorney can draft the necessary contracts or review the contracts you are asked by another to sign. We can also review the closing documents to help you identify any benefits and/or detriments.
