Estate Planning & Probate

Estate Planning

An estate plan is not a “one size fits all” tool. The unique circumstances of every family should be taken into account when developing an estate plan. A good estate planning attorney will help guide you through not only the legal consequences of your decisions but also the practical consequences of those decisions with an eye toward easing the burden of a death in the family.

Our estate planning attorneys will provide the competent and caring estate planning services that you need and your family deserves. Whether a simple will, advanced directives or pour-over trusts, we will help you develop a plan that suits your family. If you would like to review an existing estate plan, or if you need help establishing an estate plan, one of our attorneys would be happy to sit down with you, listen to your situation, and then carefully explain how we can help.

We can help you with:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Living Wills & Powers of Attorney
  • Tax planning


Probate is the term generally used to define the legal process of concluding the affairs of someone who has died. This process, often administered by a court, includes the collection of assets, liquidation of liabilities, payment of necessary taxes and distribution of property to heirs.

Probate is a well defined legal process governed by the laws of the state. Our trusted attorneys have years of experience in guiding our clients through probate. The goal of our attorneys is always to simplify the process for family members, to eliminate the stress and liability associated with the paperwork and court appearances, and to conclude the matter as quickly as possible.
