Each Client Receives Individualized Estate Planning Service

We start with the cornerstone of estate plans by creating a will, and in many cases, a trust. A will lays the foundation for your estate plan and allows you to appoint executors or administrators, specify guardians for minor children and distribute your assets according to your wishes. Additionally, we will help you with passing on larger or more complex assets by creating a trust. We will explain the difference and discuss what type of trust may be best for you.

We will also draft powers of attorney and health care directives, making sure that they clearly state your final wishes for the handling of your estate and your end-of-life health care. And if you own a business, we can assist you with business planning.

We know that drafting the estate plan is only the beginning of the process. That is why we also provide services in:

  • Estate administration: Our firm assists with the administration or probate of a loved one’s estate. Depending on the size of the estate, probate can be quite complex, and most people find that an attorney’s counsel is necessary. We can also help you with sensitive matters such as conservatorships and guardianships.
  • Estate disputes: Sometimes heirs and beneficiaries do not agree on how an estate should be divided or how it should be handled by the executors or trustees. When disputes arise, we can protect your interests in these contentious situations.
