James C. Kovaleski


As co-chair of OWM’s Business Planning Group, I work with clients to address their legal needs.  Whether it is helping them to form a new start up business, representing a thriving ongoing business, or helping them sell their business, I look forward to the opportunity to advise my clients. I also assist my clients with preparing estate plans and administering the estates of their loved ones.  I look at each one of these as a chance to help my clients navigate what can be difficult times.
