Shipley is experienced in representing individuals and businesses in the areas of bankruptcy law, business and corporate law, civil litigation, wills, trusts and estate planning, family law, and real estate law.
As the recent economic downturn has forced many individuals and businesses to consider filing for bankruptcy, our firm offers skilled, cost-effective legal representation in all types of bankruptcy law matters. Mr. Shipley has helped many clients file for Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and is dedicated to finding the best financial solution for his clients.
If you need legal assistance with a business and corporate law or civil litigation matter, Shipley Law Firm can help. For many years, Shipley Law Firm has represented clients in matters involving business formation, commercial lease agreements, and the purchase and sale of businesses and real estate. We also represent clients in business and corporate disputes involving breach of contract, unfair competition, fraud, landlord-tenant issues and employment. Whenever possible, we try to resolve disputes through alternative dispute resolution to avoid the time and expense of trial. However, when necessary we will aggressively defend your interests in litigation.
Shipley Law Firm provides legal services related to wills, trusts and estate planning to ensure peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Our firm can assist with drafting and reviewing wills and trust documents, and find asset protection strategies to minimize estate and probate taxes.
At Shipley Law Firm, we provide family law services related to adoption, divorce, child custody, child support and alimony, as well as prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements. We guide prospective adoptive parents through the complicated Florida adoption process and help file the necessary paperwork with the court. Our firm also guides clients through the difficult legal process of divorce and assists with the drafting and review of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
Shipley Law Firm has also successfully represented clients in a variety of real estate matters related to closings, title insurance, easement disputes, deed restrictions, enforcing real estate contracts, evictions and landlord-tenant litigation, homeowners associations, foreclosures, boundary disputes and quiet title actions.
