Comprehensive, Customized Services
- Wills and trusts: We can help you understand the benefits of having a will and/or a trust to protect your assets and legacy, as well as how the different types of trusts and wills may be used to benefit you now and in the future, and help your beneficiaries.
- Powers of attorney: This designation can be used to allow someone else to make medical, financial and other decisions on your behalf. Our firm can discuss how this can help you and the importance of choosing the correct person for the job.
- Probate and estate administration: The process through which an estate is probated, administered and distributed can be complicated. An attorney at our firm can explain the probate process and what your options are for the administration of a loved one’s estate.
- Estate litigation and will contests: When family members or other individuals are arguing over the terms of a will or the distribution of estate assets, it may be a situation that progresses to court and needs the attention of a lawyer at our firm who has the in-court experience you need.
In many cases, we establish long-lasting relationships with our clients, with them coming to us with issues at various points over the course of several years or a lifetime. In other cases, we may help multiple generations of a family or successive leaders of a family-owned business. We have been representing some of our clients for decades.
