For over 30 years, Gerard Neil has provided trusted legal services to people in the Red River Valley. In 2003, Gerard Neil opened his own firm, which has since expanded to become the Neil Law Firm, P.C.
Our firm has become a pillar in the East Grand Forks and Northwestern area of Minnesota. We provide a case-sensitive approach to business transactions, estate law issues, probate, real estate and the disputes that arise in any of these areas of law.
We are business attorneys who know that business means more than just corporate formation. In a small-town area like ours, business influences our clients' personal lives and their plans for the future. As a result, we've handled a wide range of legal matters. We have chosen to focus on some key legal matters that typically intersect.
We prepare wills and living wills and create trusts for clients who are preparing for the future of an estate. Our clients are everyone, from individuals to couples and children looking after their aging family members. We also walk our clients through the probate process after the loss of a family member. Our lawyers are thorough and focused on meeting each client's unique goals.
Real Estate Law
We are proud to contribute to the success of those who are shaping and building our community. We represent clients with a variety of interests in both commercial and residential real estate law matters. We also handle 1031 exchanges for investment property owners. By exchanging one property for another, these clients can get valuable rewards by deferring the capital gain taxes.
Many people dream of starting and owning a business one day. We pride ourselves in being a resource for business owners seeking advice regarding their current business or when planning to start a business. We help clients form business entities such as corporations, partnerships and LLCs. In addition, we counsel clients during the purchase and sale of businesses and through the process of ownership changes.
Resolving Your Case Through Litigation Or Mediation
When issues arise during the course of business relationships or other legal situations, we stand up for our clients' interests in court. We are experienced litigators and will advocate for our clients involved in contract disputes and business litigation.
Still, not every case demands an aggressive courtroom presence. Many cases can be resolved efficiently, cost-effectively and with less stress through mediation. A cooperative approach to dispute resolution may help you and the opposing party reach a mutually beneficial agreement. Attorneys Mark Grainger and Gerard Neil are qualified mediators. We can help you determine which dispute resolution method is right for your case.
