Estate Planning and Probate
Our goal is to assist clients to plan their estates so that they may be settled as simply and quickly as possible. We explain estate planning to our clients in terms that they understand so that they may make the best decision for distribution of their estate.
We believe estate plans should be simple unless there is a good reason to make them more complex. For instance, some clients want to have Trusts to protect their assets for their children until they reach financial maturity. Others want to do tax planning, and others have specific bequests that they wish to make. Our clients wishes are paramount.
Usually after an initial appointment we will send a draft of the documents to clients to review and comment before signing. When the documents are in a form satisfactory to the client we will sign them and advise the clients about how best to implement their estate plan.
Our role is to advise clients how best to carry out their estate planning wishes, not only for distribution on death but for disability and medical decision making.
Our firm has made long term commitments to the region and will be here in the future. We have prepared more estate plans than any other lawyers in the area. We have represented multiple generations of many families and successfully planned their estates to eliminate taxes and transfer assets to younger generations. We plan to be here and have the lawyers and staff in place to provide the continuity and long term representation to settle the Estates we have planned.
