Areas of practice

At Cherry Tree Legal, our expertise spans multiple legal disciplines, allowing us to cater to a wide range of client needs. Our skilled attorneys delve into the complexities of each case, providing comprehensive legal solutions that respect and protect your interests. Here’s a brief overview of our main areas of practice:

We help you strategically plan for the future, safeguarding your assets, and ensuring your loved ones are taken care of. Our services include creating wills, trusts, and handling probate matters to make the transition as smooth as possible.
When a loved one passes away, the legal and administrative tasks that follow can be overwhelming. We handle all aspects of probate and estate administration, including validating wills, identifying and gathering assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining estate according to the decedent’s wishes or state law.
The administration of trusts requires a keen understanding of fiduciary duties and legal procedures. We support trustees in managing and distributing trust funds and assets, providing legal assistance in interpreting trust documents, dealing with beneficiaries, and ensuring full compliance with state laws and the terms of the trust.
Navigating land use and zoning laws can be a complex undertaking. We advise businesses, developers, and homeowners on all zoning issues including obtaining conditional use permits, variance requests, zoning compliance, land use planning, and environmental impact assessments, making sure your project moves forward without legal obstacles.
Whether you’re opening a new restaurant or managing a liquor store, obtaining and maintaining a liquor license can be a challenging process. We assist clients in securing appropriate liquor licenses, advising on compliance with relevant regulations, and representing clients in hearings and appeals regarding liquor license denial, suspension, or revocation.

Our bankruptcy services aim to provide a fresh financial start for individuals and businesses. We guide clients in determining whether they qualify for Chapter 7 (liquidation) or Chapter 13 (reorganization) bankruptcy and lead them smoothly through each step of the process.

Disputes often arise in areas of probate and trust administration. We represent beneficiaries, executors, trustees, and other interested parties in a range of probate disputes such as will contests, breach of fiduciary duty, interpretation of wills and trusts, and guardianship disputes. Our aim is to protect your rights and interests while seeking a fair and just resolution.
We handle a broad spectrum of family and civil cases, from divorce and custody battles to contract disputes and personal injury claims. Our team is committed to resolving conflicts efficiently while mitigating the emotional toll on our clients.
