Areas of Practice
Estate planning is the process of establishing a Trust, Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and other related documents during your lifetime.
Regardless of the size of your estate, you and your heirs will benefit from a smart estate plan. Even with estates below tax thresholds, an estate plan can establish who will receive your assets after your death and who will be in charge of managing your estate. For larger or more complex estates, we will also discuss methods to preserve your assets for beneficiaries and minimize or postpone the amount of estate tax which otherwise might be payable at your death.
When the need arises to challenge, defend, or enforce a Will or Trust, our Lawyers will represent you in all legal proceedings. Do not let a sour relationship ruin you or your loved one’s legacy.
Our firm helps Trustees and Executors comply with the many duties associated with the administration of an Estate Plan. We will help bring clarity and direction during this time of overwhelming and sometimes difficult responsibility.
Probate is the legal proceeding supervised by the Superior Court used to transfer title to assets when a person is deceased. While we often find ways to avoid probate, our firm has a wealth of experience resolving complex Probate proceedings.
