Estate and Probate Attorneys

One of the most difficult situations families may need experienced legal guidance on is with estate planning, which is the process of designating beneficiaries to receive assets in the event of someone's death. Our attorneys are considerate of our clients' needs and can provide legal assistance with all estate planning matters including:

  • Trusts and Wills - setting up legal documents that outline financial provisions and how assets will be distributed upon death.
  • Powers of Attorney - deciding who will make health care and financial decisions should you become incapacitated or disabled.
  • Living Wills - also known as an advance directive; a legal document explaining how you wish to be taken care of medically if you aren't able to express your wishes.
  • Probate and Trust - figuring out the validity of a will, how debts will get paid, how titles, bank accounts, and valuable assets will be transferred to designated beneficiaries.
  • Contested Estate - settling disputes over unfair compensation to beneficiaries that may have been left out of a will.
  • Guardianships - designating legal guardians to take care of dependents.
  • Special Needs Trust - also known as supplemental needs trust; provides financial and medical care to disabled children and elderly parents with disabilities in the event the primary caretakers die.
  • Estate Tax Planning - reducing estate taxes through "gifting" and other methods.
