Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Administration

Our firm offers outstanding services in the areas of estate planning, probate, and trust administration. Estate planning is extremely important for everyone and typically involves several legal documents such as a will, a revocable living trust, powers of attorney and advance health care directives. One of the significant benefits of a properly funded trust is that it can spare families the hassle and expense of probate, which is a worthy endeavor that cannot be underestimated.

Trust administration is required when a trust is established and when a successor trustee takes over after the death of a loved one. As with probate administration and with executors, trustees have the fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the estate and the beneficiaries. We can assist clients with all aspects of trust and probate administration in an effort to protect personal representatives from lawsuits and to allow for a smooth and seamless distribution of assets to the rightful beneficiaries.

While we work extensively with estate and probate matters, we also represent clients with business planning. We have the ability to assist clients with entity formations such as corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships and private family foundations.
