The Wedding Lawyer

I am now offering full service legal packages to brides and grooms to be, as well as to event planners and wedding vendors.

Legal services range from contract review, drafting and negotiation, liability waivers, prenuptial agreements, wills, living wills, adjustment of status for an alien spouse or fiance, mediation of wedding disputes, mediation of dissolution of marriage, mediation of call-offs between bride and groom, permits, vendor agreements, incorporation of vendor businesses, and more.

Packages for engaged couples are priced case-by-case and generally include:

  • review of all contracts used by vendors and venues in booking your wedding
  • negotiation of all contracts as needed
  • re-drafting of contracts used by vendors and venues where necessary
  • drafting of contracts used by you with a vendor or venue who does not have its own contract
  • review of venues for liability spotting and permit requirements
  • checking with all vendors and venues for insurance, bonding and licensing where applicable
  • a basic will* OR basic prenuptial agreement**

* Wills may require an add-on charge where trusts are required or other more complicated circumstances are present.  I will have to discuss your estate to determine what is right for you before agreeing on a package.

** Prenuptial agreements likely require each spouse to obtain separate counsel to assure that both parties interests are looked after fairly.  The package would include representation of one party in drafting and negotiating of a prenuptial agreement.
