OUR SERVICES: Estate Planning/Probate

Estate Planning

Our attorneys offer everything from simple estate planning to sophisticated planning for individuals, families and business owners. We will ensure that your assets go to your intended beneficiaries and that the maximum amount of wealth is preserved. Our services will help you make your final wishes clear, plan for your future and plan for the future of your family.

Revocable trusts are the centerpiece of most estate plans. We will design a revocable trust that meets your specific family and tax requirements. We will help you transfer all of your assets and properties to your trust and avoid the probate process.

We understand that everyone has circumstances that require individual attention, and we will work closely with you to create an estate plan tailored to your needs.
