The Law Office of  Robert I. Long

 Our Services


     The Law Office of Robert Long is a general civil law practice, meaning we do not practice criminal law.  General practice encompasses legal issues commonly encountered by individuals and families. It might involve researching whether the client has a legally enforceable right, and the best or most practical means of enforcing that right.  Or, when threatened with legal action, researching both the facts and law to determine whether the threat holds water. 
     General practice also includes preparation and review of documents such as leases and contracts to assist the client understanding the potential consequences of entering into the agreement, negotiating advantages and removing ambiguities.

     Estate-planning needs vary widely and are rarely met by a one-size-fits-all set of forms. For some individuals a simple Will, Power of Attorney, and Advance Health Care Directive are all that is needed or appropriate for their circumstances. For many couples, a Revocable Living Trust is indicated, particularly if the family situation requires special attention to the needs of some beneficiaries. The process must begin by establishing a relationship with the estate-planning attorney. The Law Offices of Robert I. Long will assist you in determining a plan that is suitable to you and your family.

LITIGATION  (including Personal Injury)

             Cases donít start in court.  They begin with the event giving rise to claims, be it an injury-causing accident, a breach of contract, or a breach of a legal duty.  That may be followed by a period of investigation followed by demands for compensation, or to comply, or to desist from continuing with offending conduct.  This period of investigation and negotiation often leads to the matter being settled.  But when it does not, you want an attorney who is unafraid to go to court for you.
