Call our Twin Falls office for a consultation regarding your legal needs in any of the following areas:
Estate Planning – You work hard to build a good life and a secure future for yourself and your family. You want to know that your healthcare and finances will be adequately protected during your lifetime, and that those who survive you will be properly looked after when you are gone. Our Twin Falls estate planning attorneys give you that piece of mind by taking the time to understand your needs and desires and then drafting the right combination of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives and other documents to protect your assets and ensure your wishes are followed during any period of incapacity and for future generations as well. Estate planning is for everyone, regardless of age, health or financial status. We’ll create the estate plan that is right for you.
Probate – Completing the probate process is necessary to give effect to a will and otherwise distribute an estate in accordance with the wishes of the deceased and Idaho law. Our probate lawyers work closely with estate administrators and executors to ensure that the probate process goes smoothly and successfully with a minimum of time and expense to the estate. Many probate tasks are complicated and outside the experience of the average administrator. We lend our years of experience and expertise to help you manage these tasks effectively and without undue stress or anxiety. Administrators owe fiduciary duties to the estate, which means they can be liable for making certain kinds of mistakes. Canyon River Law can help you avoid these mistakes and get estate assets in the hands of the estate’s intended heirs and beneficiaries.
Elder Law – The field of elder law encompasses a range of legal issues typically faced by many of us as we inevitably age. Being unable to afford the care you need or leave an inheritance to your spouse, children and grandchildren is a very real fear experienced by many, especially considering the enormous cost of assisted living or skilled nursing care we all may need at some point. Canyon River Law can help you allay those fears through careful and comprehensive planning from general estate planning to specific elder law needs such as long-term care and Medicaid planning, health care directives and financial and medical powers of attorney. We help you plan to avoid guardianships or conservatorships, or work with family members when such decisions are necessary. We’ll also put our legal skills and compassion to work to stop elder abuse wherever it may occur. Call our Twin Falls elder law office to schedule a consultation with a certified elder law specialist and long-term care planning attorney.
Special Needs Planning – When caring for a child or adult with special needs, extra attention must be paid to make sure the individual can afford the level of care he or she requires, without bankrupting an estate to pay for services. Estate planning offers a variety of tools to help the person with special needs, and our Twin Falls special needs planning attorneys make use of all available legal instruments and documents. Call our office to discuss your options for a special needs trust, guardianship, conservatorship, Medicaid planning, asset protection trusts and more.
Trust and Estate Litigation – Careful, thorough and thoughtful estate planning can avoid many of the mistakes, pitfalls and disputes that can later arise when it is time to probate a will or administer a trust or estate. However, unforeseen circumstances do arise, and it’s not always possible to avoid every dispute that can come up. Our Twin Falls estate and trust litigation attorneys handle will contests, contested guardianships and conservatorships, breach of fiduciary duty, trust accountings and other matters that surface during probate or estate administration. From negotiation and mediation to courtroom litigation, our experienced litigators fight hard to protect the rights and interests of family members, heirs, beneficiaries and others involved in Idaho probate and trust litigation.
Business Law – Whether you are just starting out in business, growing an existing company or deciding its time to wind up your business affairs, you know that smart, effective legal advice and representation can help you accomplish your goals successfully and economically. Our Twin Falls business lawyers are with you throughout the life of your business, from entity formation to contract review and preparation, employment agreements, corporate governance and business succession planning. Count on our business law attorneys to handle your legal needs so you can focus on managing your company and meeting all your business goals.
Employment Law – Companies with just a handful of employees can find themselves subject to the same employment laws, rules and regulations as the largest corporations. Our Twin Falls employment law attorneys can help make sure you have the right set of policies and agreements in place to protect your company and your workforce from unfair treatment or unnecessary disputes. When disputes do arise, our litigation experience can help resolve the matter fairly and efficiently. Canyon River Law represents Idaho employers and employees in the resolution of discrimination and harassment claims, wage and hour disputes, and other employment law matters that arise in the course of employment.
Real Estate Law – For individuals and businesses alike, real estate transactions represent the most significant investments they will make. After spending a great deal of time, money and effort finding that perfect piece of real property, the last thing you expect is for the deal to fall through due to some technical error or misunderstanding. Our diligent Twin Falls real estate attorneys negotiate, draft and review escrow agreements, construction contracts, leases, and residential and commercial real property purchase and sale agreements with an eye toward protecting your rights and ensuring you get the benefit of your bargain. When disputes do arise, our tenacious lawyers litigate any contested claim, from landlord-tenant disputes and evictions to easements, liens, quiet title suits and actions for adverse possession.
