Service & Accessibility Beyond the Typical

Arenstein & Andersen Co., LPA isn’t your typical law firm. If you are looking for expensive lawyers in fancy suits, offices in tall downtown buildings, and complicated parking, look elsewhere. We are down to earth lawyers for you, your family, and your business.

Our firm strives to create a comfortable and approachable atmosphere for our clients to freely share their thoughts without fear of judgment or embarrassment. Since life is unpredictable, and problems don’t often arise during business hours, we do our best to be available to our clients as much as possible, often meeting or having discussions with clients at night or on weekends. We know that every client’s life, family, and business needs are unique, and thus their legal needs deserve a tailored approach.

Our lawyers are experienced in a vast array of disciplines with the goal of providing comprehensive legal representation to our clients. The idea that a “business” lawyer would advise a client on a business transaction, but decline to help you with the tax or estate planning implications of the transaction because he or she is not a “tax” or “estate planning” lawyer is a huge problem for most clients. This situation creates additional legal expenses and, often, the duplication of efforts. Most clients do not have the time or the money to have this situation arise, but, unfortunately, it happens too often in the legal profession. We do everything we can to avoid these situations and to make sure that all of our clients’ legal needs, in all areas of their lives, are considered when making any big life decision.

Practice Areas

Legal Services for Healthcare Professionals

Common legal challenges that we regularly assist with include employment contracts, insurance and billing issues, day-to-day operations, audits, litigation defense strategy, healthcare law and regulatory compliance, as well as the formation, acquisition, or dissolution of medical, dental, and veterinary practices.

Taxation

They say there are only two certainties in life:  death and taxes. However, since death has tax consequences, perhaps taxation should be counted twice. For any individual or business, a tax oversight could be very costly. It takes diligent tax law professionals to ensure compliance and safeguard your assets. Our tax attorneys know the codes and how to work with taxing authorities like the IRS. Let us explain the complexities, navigate the filings, and advocate for you in the event of an audit.

Civil Litigation

Legal issues often arise out of nowhere and we strive to avoid costly and protracted litigation if at all possible. However, sometimes disputes need to be resolved through the legal system. Our attorneys have considerable, real-world courtroom experience and routinely represent individuals and companies involved in civil litigation, encompassing a wide array of civil issues.

Our clients range from individuals standing up for their rights against those that seek to harm them, healthcare professionals in noncompetition disputes with former employers, land owners standing up for their property rights against large private corporations trying to take their land via eminent domain, debtors declaring bankruptcy to get a fresh start, businesses enforcing contract rights, and almost everything in between.

Estate Planning

We understand that thinking about death is never pleasant, but we see estate planning as so much more. Estate planning is not just about planning for death. In fact, many of the estate planning vehicles we provide to our clients, such as financial power of attorneys, healthcare power of attorneys, and trusts, may be utilized extensively during our clients’ lives.

Of course, we do help clients plan for death, utilizing tools like wills, trusts, and living wills to avoid probate, make the transition of death as easy and inexpensive as possible on those that you leave behind, and to assist our clients in leaving the legacy they have always envisioned. The bottom line is that it is essential that you have an estate planning conversation before it is too late. Sitting down with one of our estate planning lawyers, who can walk you through the process and discuss how we can deliver peace of mind at a reasonable cost is the first step.

Probate & Trust Administration

Probate is the court-governed process for distributing your assets upon death. This can seem straightforward, but it is fraught with complexities, tax implications, and potential hold-ups.

By working with one of our knowledgeable probate lawyers with experience representing executors and administrators, we can help you navigate the probate court without unknowingly or unnecessarily exposing yourself to liability. Additionally, trusts allow for the retention and distribution of assets to beneficiaries on your terms both before and after your death. Being responsible for a trust can be a daunting task due to the various complexities involved, such as the property held in the trust, the character of the beneficiaries, tax issues, or in some cases, simply trying to determine what the trust actually provides. More often than not, being a trustee is hard work. Let one of our experienced lawyers help by assisting you with the administration of the trust.
