McNeice Wheeler Green, PLLC is nearing the end of its first year in business. After many years practicing in a large-firm setting in both Florida and Washington, Alan opened his office in Spokane and began his own practice in 2010. During that first year, Alan was able to assist clients with a variety of consumer protection issues, business planning issues, estate planning needs and even criminal defense – and he looks forward to continuing to protect his clients’ rights and interests in the New Year.
During 2010, Alan helped clients reach reasonable and satisfactory resolutions to several different problems that fall under the heading of “Consumer Protection.” These issues ranged from problems with unlicensed and incompetent contractors to problems with debt collection to problems with auto repair facilities to problems with insurance companies. Each different case is governed by different Washington, and maybe Federal laws, regulations and rules; as well as the precedent set by both recent case law and long standing common law. Often times, a simple letter setting forth the details of the law and how the law applies to the given situation is enough to show a wrongdoer the light, and prompt a quick and reasonable resolution. A demand letter written by a competent and knowledgeable attorney is often a simple and cost effective way to resolve almost any problem. Sometimes a party is not willing to be reasonable, and whether they are an individual or a huge insurance company McNeice Wheeler Green, PLLC will represent clients in litigation to make sure your rights are protected.
Alan also helped a number of families gain the peace of mind that comes with sound estate planning. Whether a new family member starting out and wanting protection for their spouse and young children, or someone who has lived a full life and wants to protect those things they have worked so hard for, Alan is able to provide advice regarding the best way to pass along assets, protect wealth from taxes, and even create the documents necessary to make wishes known as to medial care and other important decisions. Last wills and testaments, various trusts, durable powers of attorney for both legal and health care situations – all of these documents are valuable in protecting a family’s interests in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Consumer protection and estate planning are the main focus of Alan’s practice; however, Alan also handles a variety of other cases for the people of the Inland Northwest. Alan assisted a client in beating a Dept. of Licensing drivers license suspension and negotiating a reduced charge and sentence in a criminal matter. Alan also assisted clients in forming new business entities and drafting all of the necessary documents that help protect the business owners and their investments. In addition to assisting his clients in Spokane with these varied matters, Alan also travels to Grant County once a week to represent children in juvenile court concerning matters of truancy, Youth-At-Risk Petitions for runaways and other troubled kids, and Child-In-Need-of-Services Petitions for kids needing to address difficult situations at home.
2010 was a great year for the McNeice Wheeler Green, PLLC, and 2011 promises to be even better as Alan looks forward to helping even more people. If you are in need of thoughtful legal representation, contact Alan at your convenience to see how he can help you.
