Estate Planning and Administration

Careful estate planning during one's lifetime benefits individuals and families regardless of their financial situation. Our attorneys work with clients to ensure that a client's individual goals and wishes are met while attempting to minimize the burden of estate and transfer taxes. In addition, the expense and delays often associated with probate proceedings are often avoided by effective estate planning during one's lifetime.

Furthermore, when the assets of an individual include a family business, our lawyers prepare estate plans which effectively clarify succession issues and help avoid disruptions in the operations of the business upon a business owner's death.

When a probate estate is required, our lawyers assist executors and family members to effectively and efficiently administer a probate estate. Our attorneys handle all aspects of estate administration including the preparation and filing of all required court documents and estate tax returns.
