Areas of Law Practice

William E. Bradshaw, P.C., A Professional Corporation


Civil Trial (in all State and Federal Courts)

In law, a lawsuit is a civil action brought before a court in which a party (plaintiff) has claimed to have suffered damages from a defendant's actions, the plaintiff, seeks a legal or equitable remedy. The defendants are required to respond to the complaint of the plaintiff. If the plaintiff is successful, judgment will be given in the plaintiff's favor, and a range of court orders may be issued to enforce a right, award damages, or impose an injunction to prevent an act or compel an act. A declaratory judgment may be issued to prevent future legal disputes.


Mineral Law

Natural Resources law includes the body of statutes, common law, treaties, conventions, regulations and policies which operate to regulate the interaction of humanity and the rest of the biophysical or natural environment, toward the purpose of reducing or minimizing the impacts of human activity, both on the natural environment for its own sake, and on humanity itself. Natural Resources include land, wildlife, air, water and other resources.

Corporate and Business Law

Business can be conducted in various forms. In many instances, ways of doing business are governed by law. In others, they are determined by the preferences of the parties involved, based upon a large number of business, tax and personal considerations. The focus of this area is on the entities involved in business transactions, and the relationship between them. Other areas focus on parts of, or consequences of, the business relationship.


Municipal Law

Municipal law is the national, domestic, or internal law of a public body.  Municipal law includes not only law at the national level, but law at the state, provincial, territorial, regional or local levels.   I advise local governments and commissions about grants, loans, tax collection, environmental matters, public procurement, freedom of information, personal issues, and other related matters.


Estate and Trust Services

Estate and Trust services involves the will, trusts, beneficiary designations, powers of appointment, property ownership (joint tenancy with rights of survivorship, tenancy in common, tenancy by the entirety), gift, and powers of attorney, specifically the durable financial power of attorney and the durable medical power of attorney. Specific final arrangements, such as whether to be buried or cremated, are also often part of the documents. And some estate plans may even cover deferring or decreasing estate taxes or winding up a business.


Creditors Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is a legally declared inability or impairment of ability of an individual or organizations to pay their creditors. Bankruptcy law provides for the development of a plan that allows a debtor to resolve his debts through the division of his assets among his creditors.  I provide representation to creditors whose rights are affected by the bankruptcy process.
