WHY YOU NEED AN AGRIBUSINESS ATTORNEY

The farming way of life is different in many ways. Things tend to be done the time-honored way.

Mr. Potucek will provide you and your family with the security and reassurance of knowing that your affairs are capably being handled.

If you are like most farmers, you dream of the day that you can hand your farm down, with pride, to the next generation. The soil has been watered with your blood, sweat, and tears. A well-conceived succession plan can make certain your farm is in good hands long before the transition takes place. It also saves your family the stress of figuring it out if the unexpected happened. A free will downloaded from the internet isn’t going to take into account the issues specifics to agricultural land ownership.

It’s tough work being a farmer, with plenty to worry about. Trying to figure out Uncle Sam’s tangled maze of regulations that govern the agricultural industry is no easy task. Your time is better spent taking care of your farm and land and family than it is getting lost in regulations and bureaucracy. Let us do that for you. No matter how diligently a farm is run, there will always be a missed opportunity, or an overlooked code or regulation. Daniel Potucek can help you make informed decisions about how to run your operation. Protecting your business from governmental compliance violations is as important as taking advantage of the many programs available from the government to assist those in the agricultural industry.
