LAW OFFICE OF                                 SHAWN DICKERSON


Legal support for your family law, bankruptcy, trust/probate/estate needs

Areas of Practice



Everyone should have an estate plan. Even modest estates are better planned through the use of a Will and possibly a Trust. Whatever your situation, your planning should be reviewed periodically to reflect changes in your personal circumstance as well as changes in the law.


If you’re considering a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are most likely under a lot of stress and uncertainty.  The bills are piling up, payments are past due, and the daily phone calls from creditors have become overwhelming and harassing. For many, the experience of facing bankruptcy is unlike anything they have encountered before. Mr. Dickerson provides Bankruptcy services in Chapter 7 and 13 matters and will guide you through the process of debt relief.


Are you concerned about the welfare of a child or adult who cannot manage their own affairs? Sometimes, because of unforeseen circumstances, children lose their parents, or adults are unable to manage their own affairs due to disability, someone needs to step in and help. Mr. Dickerson can help an individual who is seeking to become a Guardian or Conservator. Having a Guardian or Conservator means that many significant rights are taken away from that person. Attorney Dickerson can help advocate on behalf of an individual to protect their rights and ensure that a Conservator or Guardian is necessary, that a Conservator or Guardian only has powers that are truly needed to help the individual, or to prevent abuse by a Guardian or Conservator.


Mr. Dickerson specializes in all aspects of family law litigation including Divorce, Child Support, Child Custody and Visitation, Spousal Support, Move-Aways, Paternity Actions, Domestic Violence/Restraining Orders and Legal Separation. Our office also provides family law services such as Post-Nuptial Agreements, Pre-Nuptial Agreements, Co-Habitation Agreements, and Mediation.
