Welcome to Carmel Valley Law

My goal is to help you accomplish the following:

  1. Develop your personal estate and business plans
  2. Forge strong and profitable relationships
  3. Reduce your risk of future problems and misunderstandings

What is the best way to do that?  The answer is,


Think about the old adage:

“An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure”

Disputes and lawsuits chip away at the bottom line, oftentimes changing net profit into net loss.

Many disputes and lawsuits result from misunderstandings.

Many misunderstandings result from reasonable interpretations and assumptions of events and conduct by reasonable people.

People hear things the way they want to hear them. They make assumptions. They interpret things based upon their experiences.

Regional differences in the use of language can also contribute to misunderstandings.

Rather than go through the expense and aggravation that can result from disputes and lawsuits, experience shows that it is better to reduce the odds of a misinterpretation or misunderstanding through (a) careful planning, (b) clear communication and (c) clear and thorough document drafting.

Having a professional help you clearly communicate your objectives and the detailed terms and conditions associated with your intentions can help you avoid disputes and lawsuits.

Good planning!  It makes good sense!
