Farm and Ranch Consultation and Law
A local attorney and farmer providing consultation and legal services to the ag community in the Inland Northwest
The farm, ranch and orchard community is a unique group of people with unique legal issues including property and water rights, land leases, easements, purchase and sales, and secured transactions for crops, machinery, livestock, and other farm goods. All of these issues are dealt with in contracts of one type or another. These contracts are just not theoretical paper. They are living agreements that mitigate risk, define the parameters of your negotiations, and give structure to the transaction.
I was educated as an engineer and attorney, but was raised on a farm and cattle ranch. I know the issues that farmers and ranchers have to deal with, and have to deal with many myself as a current small farm owner in this region. Let me bring my experience, my hard-learned lessons that arose out of both my successes and, more importantly, my own failures, to help you with your business. From contract and lease drafting and review, to simple estate planning, I can help you manage your risk and protect your hard-earned assets.
My practice can assist you and your business with several matters including:
- Contract Drafting, Review, and Negotiation
- Property Acquisitions and Sales
- Commercial Purchase & Sale Documents
- Security Agreements and UCC Transactions
- Agricultural Business Transactions
- Buy-Sell Agreements
- Operating Agreements
