We represent a number of local businesses and customize our services to meet your unique business and employment needs by offering both general and strategic planning business advice to clients looking to adapt, grow or downsize their current business. We also can assist in situations of contract disputes. We draft, review and negotiate a wide variety of business-related documents and contracts, including but not limited to forms, policies, business plans, operating agreements and bylaws, commercial leases, severance agreements, and purchase and sale agreements.
The relationship between employers and employee can be positive, but more often than not sometimes, can result in hiccups and tension. Kristine and Monique work to resolve any issues, conflict and tension between employers and employees and have equal experience in representing both sides of the relationship. That said, when it is time to part ways, we have extensive experience in drafting, review and negotiating severance agreements and bringing closure to both parties.
Monique and Kristine guide clients who are at all stages Divorce and Family Law matters, from pre-marriage advice and prenuptial agreements to strategic pre-divorce planning and consultation, as well as planning to protect one’s rights as a parent when sharing (or expecting) a minor child with a co-parent outside of a marriage through the divorce negotiation and finalization process to modifications down the road as circumstances may change.

That said, there are benefits to becoming an Independent Contractor as well.

No. If you are an employer who wants to offer a Severance Agreement or if you are an employee who has received a Severance Agreement, reach out to us to discuss the potential pros and cons to the same.
“Smart, experienced, don't miss a detail, and a pleasure to work with! Kristine and her team have provided (and will continue to provide) me with great advice, particularly as a small business owner getting started.”
