Attorneys for Young Professionals
At G&G Law, LLC, we are a firm comprised of three attorneys in their thirties. As young professionals ourselves, we are able to cater to other young professionals such as doctors, nurses, financial advisers, accountants, insurance agents, real estate agents, teachers and professors, life and success coaches, etc. Our young professional clients appreciate our ability to communicate on their level, use technology to improve the flow of information and their overall attorney experience, and in general understand the hardships and demands of the modern landscape for young professionals.
Below are some of the practice areas we serve and some examples of how we help our young professional clients meet their needs within those areas of law.
Whether you just graduated school or have been working for somebody else gaining experience, you may be looking to open your own business or practice. One of the things they don’t teach you in grad school, and that your previous employers are not likely to share with you, is how to start, plan and run a business. Many of our first encounters with our young professional clients are when they are trying to go out on their own but don’t know how to handle much of the business paperwork that was previous done on their behalf. Should they form a partnership, an LLC or a corporation? How should they handle partners or investors? Are they allowed to have partners or investors under State laws? What licensing will they need? What types of insurance will they need? What contracts do they need to sign with their clients and customers? How about a business plan to seek funding? Should they be charging sales tax?
We can assist our clients by identifying all of the needs of their business, the barriers it will have to get over, and how we will attack those barriers. We have the knowledge, experience and software to meet all the business law needs of our young professional clients.
Many young professionals are beginning to reap the fruits of their labor; they are finally starting to make decent money after years of education and training. One of the first things many think about, and perhaps the most important purchase of their life, is buying a home. Whether buying a condominium or a house, there are many specific considerations that go into the legal process of buying a home. As first time homeowners, young professionals need a little extra help when buying their first home. Our real estate attorneys are ready to guide our clients from contract signing to closing.
Perhaps the young professional bought a home before they were making good money, and now their income and credit score have improved. It might be a good idea to consider a refinance, lowering your interest rate and perhaps the length of the mortgage, saving you lots of money over the life of the loan. Or maybe they want to sell their condo and buy a house – we can manage a sale and purchase for the same day!
Until they begin working in their profession and building up wealth, many young professionals do not feel like they own anything worth putting into a will, so many do not consider an estate plan. First, you should always have an estate plan, even if that plan is to not draft documents and allow the laws of intestacy (dying without a will) control the distribution of your assets. Second, once the money starts rolling in and the young professional owns a car, has a home, marries and has kids, the issue of what will happen to their money and will it provide for those they care about becomes very important. Young professionals also need special considerations in the modern age: child protection plans, social media property distribution, and an increased need for privacy are just some of those considerations.
As we age so do our loved ones, such as our parents and grandparents. Issues such as the need for special needs trusts or probate estate administration after the death of a loved one begin to arise. Our firm can handle the estate planning and administration needs of multiple generations; and we hope to serve the next generation too (the children of our current young professional clients).
With increasing wealth come higher taxes. The more you make the more you pay; unless you can spend it properly by investing in the future of your business. Our tax attorney can review your industry, financial situation, assets and liabilities and advise you of the most tax-advantaged ways to put your money to use.
Some young professionals have also already dug a hole for themselves with the IRS or State. Perhaps you had a job as a waiter, and now you have unpaid or unclaimed income tax debts due to the IRS. Maybe you improperly set up your service business, did not charge sales tax on the services you provided, and now the CT DRS is coming after you for uncollected or unremitted Sales & Use Tax debts. Our tax resolution attorneys can help you appeal government determinations, comply with audits, and resolve your tax debts using an array of methods available to those who know and understand tax law and procedures.
Sometimes we make decisions when we are younger that we spend our entire lives dealing with. An error only becomes a mistake if you do nothing to fix it. The impact of such decisions can be minimized. Whether you are in an early marriage that has become unhappy or abusive or you are seeking child custody or a modification of the custody agreement due to a change in circumstances, our family law attorney is ready to assist with your family matters in a way that has the least negative impact on the family relationship.
