Law Office of Michael D. Mahon

Michael Mahon has been providing legal services to clients in Sacramento for nearly two decades.  Whether you need a cost-effective estate plan or have more complex legal needs, such as litigation against someone or a company that has wronged you, please call for a confidential, no-cost consultation.

Simple Estate Planning Solutions

Wills, trusts, powers-of-attorney, transfer-upon-death deeds, and straightforward advice are available without high cost and without being just a number in a trust mill.  If you are in the Sacramento area, I am happy to work with you structuring your estate plan and preparing your documents.  Typically we have an initial meeting to discuss your needs and answer your questions.  A second meeting comes after a few days, when the initial drafts of your documents are ready and we go through a few suggestions I may have or you may have some changes or follow-up with addresses of beneficiaries, trustees, and substitute trustees.  At a third meeting, we can have a mobile notary meet for signing.  Most amendments or codicils are free of charge within the first three months.  It is best to get a first good plan completed rather than procrastinate and worry that you may not have had the perfect plan prepared or face additional charges.

Capable Representation in Real Estate Transactions

Commercial real estate transactions are complicated, and the stakes are usually high. Michael Mahon uses his analytical background and experience in negotiation to help you get the best deal possible when you purchase, sell, or lease any commercial property. As an experienced commercial and residential broker, he is intimately familiar with most issues touching real estate from a transaction standpoint as well as a legal standpoint. When does the power of negotiation shift from a seller to the buyer? What steps can a seller take to limit re-trading? Controlling the clock is just as important in real estate as it is in football.

Mike Mahon can help you draft contracts, review existing contracts, negotiate with the other parties, run your due diligence process, including monitoring inspections, and complete the transaction successfully. Detailed due diligence, lease analysis, title analysis, environmental analysis, and financial analysis up front can be more critical than all operations decisions over years and years.

An Advocate in Bankruptcy

Mike Mahon is an experienced bankruptcy advocate in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13.  He has practiced in all four federal judicial districts in California, representing clients in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento bankruptcy courts. If you are struggling with debts you cannot pay, he is happy to help you explore all options and to help you make the right choice for your future.

Mike Mahon will stay by your side every step of the way, will not hand you over to an unlicensed paralegal, an appearance attorney, or a form preparer, and he will answer all of your questions to make you comfortable with the process and to help you maximize benefits and exemptions.

Tenant Representation

If you are entering a lease as a tenant, please be aware not all brokers have the same ethics or long-term view of tenant representation.  Most brokers represent landlords, and they are unconsciously on the landlord’s side, often willing to tell you lease provisions are “standard” or “normal” when the provisions are, in fact, often negotiated, and typical boilerplate favors landlords. For any substantial lease, a tenant should bring his attorney into the search and negotiation process as early as possible.

An Ally You Can Trust in Business

Attorney Michael Mahon wants your business to be as successful as possible. However, with the intense competition, building a profitable business is noteasy. Fortunately, Michael Mahon can help you with almost any legal issue you face, including strategic analysis, business formation, business-to-business negotiations, ownership structures, location analysis, succession planning, and more.

Do you need independent advice but do not wish to hire full-time, in-house counsel? Mike Mahon is an experienced business advisor who has worked with many business clients outside of the context of lawsuits or specific transactions. Whether you are starting a new business or you have been in business for decades, MikeMahon can help your company grow.
