Providing quality legal services to individuals and their families has been a hallmark of our practice since our inception in 1954. Over the years, we have expanded our representation into a number of areas including divorce, immigration and personal injury representation. Our broad range of legal capabilities for both business and personal representation makes us an excellent choice for all of your legal needs.Areas of Practice:
Business Planning and Succession
Lindabury attorneys have the business, estate and tax experience to guide business owners through the complex web of issues that often surround the transition of the ownership of a business. Our practice is large enough to have handled many large and sophisticated business transactions, yet small enough to have an intimate understanding of the personal investment owners and their families have made in the businesses they have built. We will help you find the most effective means for meeting your business succession objectives.
We provide legal advice and counsel to guide you through elder law issues. Our attorneys are experienced in the many areas related to these issues (tax, real estate, health care, business) and diligent in remaining up to date on the continuously evolving body of law that governs these programs and issues.
We provide personal service that is sensitive to each person’s unique circumstances and committed to finding solutions that address your financial and personal goals.
In addition to employer representation, we also routinely represent executives in their relationships with employers, including negotiation of employment contracts, confidentiality and non-competition agreements, and severance arrangements and separation agreements. We are experienced in negotiating and drafting agreements which include provisions for incentive compensation; myriad types of bonus programs; stock purchase, stock option plans and SARs; top hat, excess benefit and other nonqualified deferred compensation plans, including those with rabbi and secular trusts; and split-dollar and other insurance-based programs.
Divorce and Family Law
Our divorce and family law attorneys provide the full range of services to our clients. We prosecute and defend actions for divorce, alimony, custody, visitation, child support, equitable distribution of property, children's rights, post-judgment matters, and actions under The Prevention of Domestic Violence Act.
We provide legal representation to individuals for their own or their family member’s serious injury or wrongful death. We protect the rights of clients for injuries and deaths resulting from motor vehicle and workplace accidents, the faulty design and manufacture of products, medical or dental malpractice, environmental hazards and negligent maintenance of premises.
