Prenuptial Agreements are often used by one or both parties when they have significant assets or expect to receive significant assets. Prenuptial Agreements allow for the protection of assets by planning for the division of such assets in the event of divorce. By contracting the division of assets that would be addressed by a divorce court, the parties remove the uncertainty about the resolution of financial issues in a divorce by a judge. These agreements are designed to save the marital estate from being dwindled by the expenses of divorce litigation and manage divorce issues in an expeditious and cost-effective manner. Drafting of these agreements requires skill in creating an agreement which can survive challenges based upon claims of unconscionably. Postnuptial Agreements can also be drafted for the same purposes as Prenuptial Agreements, but they are prepared after parties are married. Please Contact our Denver Law Firm to discuss the preparation of Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreements with an attorney who has experience preparing many of these agreements.

There are many trucks on the turnpike and a good number of accidents as a result. If you have been hit by a truck or you have lost someone due to a truck accident, we can help you negotiate a deal with the insurance company. We can also represent you in a wrongful death lawsuit. When trying to recover damages as a result of a truck accident, you will almost always be dealing with an insurance company. The goal of the insurance adjuster is to settle cases and save the insurance company as much money as possible. Without an accident attorney, the settlement process proceeds completely on the adjuster’s terms. This scenario will never yield the best possible result for you. Your attorney’s job is to level the playing field. Their main goal is to settle your claim to maximize your compensation. If you have been involved in an truck accident in Washington, DC you should contact an accident lawyer quickly to ensure that you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

Listen To What Our Clients Say...
Because It's Our Client's That Matter Most
Yale was great... affordable, accessible, responsive and knowledgeable. He spent time with me one-on-one and achieved a positive outcome for my family and me.
With his many years of experience, Mr. Lewis was very knowledgeable in response to my case. While he acted as my council, he was prompt in his responses and clear about what had to be done, saving me time and money..
If you need an attorney to tell you the truth and get the job done, Mr. Lewis is definitely the right attorney. I have been a Paralegal in the legal field for more than 5 years and have met many attorneys and Mr. Lewis is by far one of the most well-versed attorneys in his field that I have ever met.
Debunking Some Real Estate Myths
I have a real estate broker so I don't need a lawyer.
A real estate broker is paid to close deals, not to look out for your interests. They are not qualified to offer legal advice and may not be too concerned about the finer details of your contract. Legal advice from an experienced real estate attorney protects your interests and helps avoid significant issues down the road.
Real estate attorneys are too expensive.
The pricing is determined by the firm you choose, but there are many quality real estate attorneys that perform basic real estate services like title searches, contract reviews, and closings for very reasonable fees. In any case, it is much more affordable then ending up in costly litigation due to issues that were easily avoidable.
Lawyers just complicate the process.
A good real estate attorney should actually make your transaction go more smoothly. We reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt your transaction by doing our due-diligence up front.
