Family Law

Neely Brien Wilson & Toombs provide personalized representation of individuals in divorce cases as well as post-divorce litigation, seeking enforcement or modification of existing court orders. Additionally, our firm regularly counsels clients on issues ranging from paternity, child custody, child support, and adoption. We understand the sensitive nature of family issues and prides itself on helping clients navigate the Family Court system as quickly and painlessly as possible.

NBWT frequently handles cases in which the parties have substantial assets or cases that involve complex business issues. In this capacity, we counsel clients regarding the valuation and division of those assets. Our firm also recognizes, however, that there is a need for low-cost divorces for couples with no children and few or no marital assets, or for those couples who have agreed on the division of the marital assets and debts. In these instances, we often provide representation in no-contest cases for a reasonable, flat fee.

  • General Corporate Representation

  • Shareholder Representation

  • Officer and Director Representation

  • Corporate Finance and Securities Compliance

  • Mergers and Acquisitions

Our attorneys assist in the formation of corporate and other limited liability companies and can be involved from the early discussion that determines what entity is appropriate for a particular business venture, to preparing the documents necessary to create that legal structure. We also counsel clients and prepare agreements relating to shareholder relationships, executive employment, and employee stock incentive plans.

The services provided include advising on all aspects of business operations including,  issues relating to officer and director liability; observance of corporate formalities to maintain shareholder protection from liability; compliance with regulatory and other governmental authorities, product liability, warranty matters; tax structuring and planning; mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, spin-offs, and other corporate acquisitions or divestitures.

We create documents for commercial financing such as lines of credit, term loans, and factoring arrangements.

 

Probate / Estate Planning

Neely Brien Wilson & Toombs often work with individuals to prepare estate plans to ensure that their loved ones are provided for and that their assets will be distributed in accordance with their wishes. We routinely incorporate trusts and guardian designations for minor children into clients' wills to ensure that assets are preserved and the children are in good care.

 

As part of estate planning services, clients are advised on the use of a variety of types of powers of attorney and health care directives or living wills. In addition, our firm is experienced in efficiently handling the probate administration and settlement of estates once a loved one has passed away.

 

Personal Injury

Personal injury law deals with physical, mental or emotional injury caused by the negligence of another person. Many times people call us and say, “We were hesitant to call since we don’t know if we have a case.” Calling us is the first step in understanding whether you have a case and it does not cost you a dime. 

As a dedicated law firm, we are able to take the time necessary to thoroughly evaluate your accident and put the time and resources into building a strong personal injury case. This involves hiring accident reconstruction experts and medical professionals who can testify on how the accident occurred and the extent of the injuries. Additionally, we look beyond the medical records to show how the accident injury affected our clients’ lives. Our goal is to show the insurance companies that our clients are suffering with real injuries and need the money to rebuild their lives.

 

Workers Compensation

Workers' compensation cases can quickly become complex due to the multifaceted aspects of the claim. An experienced work injury lawyer can provide thorough representation and develop an effective strategy tailored to your unique concerns.
 

From the first report of an injury, a determination on acceptance or denial of liability, or the initiation of a formal claim, the lawyers at Neely Brien Wilson & Toombs are prepared to advise you to handle your case in a competent and professional manner. If you have questions regarding workers' compensation, we invite you to schedule a confidential consultation.
 

Through our long history of representing clients in work injury cases, we pride ourselves in providing efficient, thorough, and individualized legal services. Whether the injury can be traced back to horseplay, willful misconduct, intoxication, or illegal drug use, it is crucial that you seek experienced legal guidance. We encourage you to discuss your unique matter with a knowledgeable attorney at our firm.

 

Collections

Now more than ever, you and your company need to stay on top of accounts receivable to maintain cash flow and remain competitive.  We can help you focus on delinquent accounts and turn slow-paying or no-paying accounts into money.  We do not believe in letting delinquent accounts languish.  Success is best achieved when creditors move quickly to collect monies that are owed.  

 

In commercial debt scenarios, our standard practice is to make a quick demand for payment accompanied by a summons and draft civil complaint. If that demand is not met or satisfactory repayment terms are otherwise not reached within the specific time-frame, we file suit quickly.  The chances of successful collection do not generally increase with time, and therefore, our clients are best served when we are apprised quickly of delinquent debt.  Thereafter, our priority is to address the matter timely. Where lien rights exist, delay can be fatal to your claim.  Call us to see how we can help with the collection of your delinquent accounts.
