Estate Planning  

Estate planning is more than just a collection of documents.  It is the way in which you pass a legacy to your family. Depending on who you are, that could be a business, a home, what is left of your nest egg, an old car, a cherished art collection or a family heirloom.  It could be all of those things.  Estate planning is also the way to specify who will make healthcare and financial decisions for you if you are unable to do so.  Think about how important that is and which person in your life you trust to make the right decisions at the right time.  Security, peace of mind, assurance and clarity.  These are the goals of estate planning.

PROBATE ADMINISTRATION

Probate is the process by which assets of a deceased person are transferred to their beneficiaries and heirs.  It is necessary (but avoidable with a good estate plan) to protect the rights of creditors of a decedent and is complex and time consuming.  That is why you should always have an experienced probate attorney help you.

ELDER LAW

Elder Law includes helping seniors and their families with Medicaid and VA Aid and Attendance benefits, including planning related to those benefits.   This area of practice also includes Guardianships and Conservatorships.  

Estate Litigation

Estate litigation involves disputes over estates, trusts and wills.  Fights over estates are more common than people realize. If you find yourself in a tug of war after the death of a family member, it is probably time to consult with our office about your rights and the best way to protect your interests.
