WILLS, TRUSTS, AND ESTATES

Our estate attorneys focus on implementing estate plans to ensure that one’s assets are transferred to the right individuals, at the right time, and in the most efficient manner possible. Our estate attorneys are experienced in drafting both wills and trusts to help to guide you in what type of plan best fits your needs and accomplishes your wishes. Our attorneys also draft durable powers of attorney, special powers of attorney, and advanced medical directives which permit a trusted agent to act on your behalf if you become sick or injured and are unable to make decisions for yourself. Having an estate plan in place ensures that you will have someone to act on your behalf if you are unable to do so, and that your wishes will be accomplished.  Failing to implement an estate plan can also result in costly court proceedings for your family to determine how to manage your care and finances. 

In addition, our attorneys also assist with the estate and trust administration, and can help you navigate the settlement of your loved one’s affairs.  If you are named as the Executor or Trustee of an estate or trust, there are certain fiduciary obligations and responsibilities that you must comply with in order to probate an estate. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through this process and assist with completion of the filings needed for compliance for estate administration.

Contact our attorneys today for a consultation about your estate planning and administration needs.
