We represent both companies and employees in a full slate of workplace disputes, including those under federal and state wage-hour, discrimination, family and medical leave, and labor organizing laws.
Our firm has significant experience handling the various legal questions that can arise over how workers are classified, an increasingly active litigation area, which can have costly consequences for businesses.
Classifying a group of workers as independent contractors instead of traditional employees requires analysis under several laws. It determines whether those workers are entitled to minimum wages and overtime pay, as well as workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance. Our attorneys can assist businesses in properly classifying workers to avoid costly litigation.
Estate Planning, Asset Protection, and Probate in Brevard County
Estate plans are valuable legal tools that help people provide for their loved ones by deciding how their assets will be distributed when they pass away. They can be designed to avoid probate, the sometimes complicated formal court proceeding in which a judge reviews a will and hears claims from any challengers or creditors.
Estate plans can also be used to protect your assets and clarify your wishes if you become disabled or incapacitated.
At Lacey Lyons Rezanka, an Estate Planning Attorney can regularly help clients plan for the future with the following legal instruments:
- Trusts (revocable and irrevocable)
- Powers of attorney
- Health care directives
Florida families can take several steps to protect their assets from creditors and lawsuits, such as using individual land trusts like a limited liability company.
Medicaid planning can be crucial to ensuring that you or a family member get the full benefits available.
Our firm can help you analyze your income and assets and restructure them if needed to stay within Medicaid eligibility limits, such as transferring assets to certain types of trusts.
