Responsible and Protective Estate Planning

The guidance of a prudent estate planning attorney can ensure that your assets are administered to beneficiaries efficiently, minimizing estate tax burdens, saving on attorneys' fees, avoiding probate and planning for unplanned life events. Combined, our attorneys have more than 40 years of experience helping individuals and families make informed decisions about their future.

Regardless of the complexity of your estate, we can help you achieve your goals and protect your wishes with several services, including:

  • Drafting your last will and testament
  • Creating revocable and irrevocable trusts
  • Preparing durable powers of attorney
  • Designating a health care proxy
  • Asset protection
  • Property distribution
  • Business succession planning
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Elder law
  • Estate administration
  • Representation and counsel in probate court

Carrying Out a Sound Estate Plan Prevents Probate Disputes

The goal of a properly drafted estate plan is to provide for a stress-free administration of your estate and distribution of assets upon your passing. Absent a legally drafted will and other thoroughly documented aspects of an estate plan, your loved ones could be burdened as they try to settle the distribution of your estate. Similarly, if you become incapacitated or are judged incompetent of making financial or health-related decisions, your intended wishes during life could be put at risk of not being adhered to accurately or they may not be followed at all.

It is critical to assign important decision-making powers to individuals you can trust and to have a thorough estate plan solidified in order to avoid will contests, fiduciary misdeeds and other disputes.
