Name Change

What's in a Name?

Your name is generally the first thing other people see or hear about you. It defines you. Your name could make you blend in, or could stand you out from a crowd. Your current name could not match your personality or gender. It could be too “ethnic” or not “ethnic” enough. Or your child could bear the name of a person that is a negative influence on his or her life.

Changing your or your child’s name is a very deep, personal decision. It will affect your or your child’s everyday life, hopefully in a very positive way. A married couple hyphenating their surnames, or a gay or lesbian couple sharing surnames to make financial transaction more convenient.

In addition, we are seeing many clients who have been using a name that is not official and because of the new security requirements are required to have an official name change to keep a drivers license in the name they have become accustom to.

Whatever personalized reason you have to change your name, it only makes sense to have a personalized attorney who knows which documents to file with the court and when. There are certain circumstances that will be different for every client, and these circumstances will change the description and the amount of information needed to successfully change your name.

Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
