We are here to help.

Many of our clients enjoy the convenience
of having both their business needs and
personal matters handled by one trusted law firm. 

Because of the nature of the firm’s practice and the rapport established between the attorneys and their clients over years of working together, Mr. Rudolph and Mr. Chonoles have had the privilege of serving many of the firm’s clients in both their business and personal matters.

The firm’s practice includes providing legal advice, counsel and services to individuals, startup companies and established businesses in various aspects of business law, commercial matters, and employment and labor law. This includes litigation and transactional work. The attorneys serve the complete needs of their clients in producing Living Trust packages and advising on Asset Protection.

Because the firm has represented many small businesses over the years, the attorneys have had the opportunity to represent the interests of a mix of both employees and employers, in all types of matters, from Wage and Hour claims to Harassment, and in hiring and firing decisions. Representing both management and labor throughout the years has given Mr. Rudolph and Mr. Chonoles an invaluable base of knowledge and experience with which to address nearly any type of business and employment issues that could arise. They are here to help.
