Succession planning is the intersection of many disciplines, including legal, tax, accounting and financial. Our attorneys offer practical solutions to drive business succession planning.

Medical Malpractice, Hospital, & Nursing Home Negligence

Our attorneys are dedicated to advocate fiercely for clients who have faced the trauma of medical malpractice.

Out of compassion for those who have been harmed by poor medical care or neglect, Lacy Katzen attorneys bring a passion for fighting for patient rights and provider accountability across the healthcare system. It’s one of the reasons why Lacy Katzen is nationally recognized as one of the leading law firms for Medical, Hospital & Nursing Home Malpractice & Neglect. It begins with a comprehensive and aggressive approach to understanding the facts, especially the medicine, of each and every case. It continues with the highest level of personal attention and advocacy every step of the way. It results in our quest to recover the highest possible damages – through settlement negotiations or, if necessary, going to trial.

Family Law

When it comes to family law matters you need an accomplished and professional, yet understanding and compassionate team by your side.

Our Family Law practice handles a wide range of issues including not only divorce and separation but many other domestic concerns as well. These matters are highly personal, emotional, and often complex and confusing. They require a knowledgeable yet sensitive team that understands both the legal issues and the personal anguish these matters can create and provides objective counsel in a clear and understandable fashion when emotions run high. First we gain a thorough understanding of the circumstances and goals of our client, then explore and explain all available options. We serve as a guide through difficult and unfamiliar territory, helping our client to avoid strictly emotional responses and to make thoughtful and informed decisions. We patiently counsel and vigorously advocate for our clients to pursue and protect what is in their best interests.
