Trusts & Estates


Few matters are as important as estate planning. You need a plan that is highly personal and individualized, created by professionals who are experienced, honest, responsive, and caring. We help develop and implement plans to safeguard you and your family, so that when you can no longer care for yourself or your loved ones, the documents will be in place to put your plans into action.

Proper planning allows you and your family to receive the full benefit of everything that you have worked so hard to acquire. Tax planning, asset protection, and business succession planning are among several key issues we address.

We handle every aspect of post-death planning and administration, taking the burden off family members. After the death of a loved one, we work closely with the personal representative and trustee for a smooth, efficient probate or trust administration.

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Durable Powers of Attorney (Financial and Health Care)
  • Probate and Trust Administration
  • Probate Litigation
  • Trust Litigation
  • Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
