Legal Assistance at the Lake of the Ozarks

March 14th is Legal Assistance Day, and a wonderful time to celebrate what it can mean for you to have access to lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks. The day was established to help people understand the importance of what lawyers do for their communities everywhere, while also giving people a special opportunity to handle and resolve their legal needs. At O’Donnell Law Center, we are here to assist when you have hit a bump in the road, or even when you undertake a new adventure such as purchasing a home or starting a new business. Because our goal is to take the burden off of your shoulders and place it on ours, we want you to know exactly what services we offer in our law center at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here is a quick introduction to our center!

Family Law at the Lake of the Ozarks

This can be a very broad category that includes divorce, custody, child support, adoption, adult orders of protection, child orders of protection, prenuptial agreements, and grandparents’ rights. Family law is often the most emotionally-packed litigation you can find yourself in. For that reason, it is important to be able to communicate with your lawyer often, using the communication method you prefer, at the time that works best in your schedule. Our experience tells us that frequent communication goes a long way toward easing the emotional toll family law litigation creates. While you focus on achieving your new normal, we make sure the legal process is working for you.

Estate Planning at the Lake of the Ozarks

People rarely want to think about the end of life. But in order to make it a little easier on the loved ones that we leave behind, and to make sure that our hard-earned property and estate gets distributed to those who we want it to go to, end of life planning is an absolute necessity. We know that cookie-cutter estate planning forms, such as wills and durable powers of attorney, are available to you with the click of a button and a cost that is next to nothing. But our lives are not stamped out by a cookie-cutter and everyone’s family, circumstances and wishes are different and deserve to be recognized as such. At O’Donnell Law Center, we pride ourselves on quick and easy delivery of estate planning documents that incorporate your personal circumstances. We will also instruct you in making non-probate transfers so that you can help your loved ones avoid the time and expense of probating your will.

Probate Lawyer at the Lake of the Ozarks

Not everyone has the opportunity to get their affairs in perfect order before they pass, so sometimes going to probate court is unavoidable. Probate court can come necessarily with or without a will, when non-probate transfers are insufficient to pass title to your property immediately upon your death, there is a dispute over who your property should go to, or a loved one is in need of a court-appointed guardian or conservator. Or perhaps you have been named as a personal representative in a will and are in need of legal counsel as you discharge your duties as a personal representative.

Sometimes a death in the family followed by questions about how the property is going to be distributed triggers intense emotions and disagreements among family members that are akin to a high conflict divorce. A competent probate attorney can be a valuable resource during these difficult times.

Your Friendly Law Center at the Lake of the Ozarks

At O’Donnell Law Center you have a team of professionals who communicate with you often and work efficiently to get your problem resolved or your new idea off the ground. We recognize that when you come to us for help, you already have a lot of stress. We want to reduce that stress, not add to it, and we do that in part by giving you options and putting you in control of how we deliver legal services to you.
