For Business

Small (closely held) companies have some of the same needs as larger ones, but also have unique needs regarding succession, and tax and estate planning for their owners.

Bernard Law Office focuses on both the normal and special needs of small companies and their owners with an emphasis on individual attention and service. In doing so, Mr. Bernard knows clients look to him for advice when business matters meet family legal matters. Bernard Law Office will work with your existing financial advisory team or can suggest able accountants, insurance, and investment professionals.
