Get Peace Of Mind With A Well-Planned Estate

Creating a will or setting up a trust is an overwhelming process, and an error can have severe repercussions during probate. If you pass away without creating a plan, your estate may be taxed and your loved ones may fight over their share of assets. We meet with you to discuss your wishes and then create a comprehensive estate plan to accomplish your goals.

We use all available legal tools to plan our clients' estates, including:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Guardianships and special needs trusts
  • Powers of attorney and health care proxies
  • Advance health care directives (living wills)
  • Estate tax planning

An Effective Estate Litigator

Probate is the process through which a person's will is filed, debts are settled and assets are distributed to the beneficiaries. While a well-planned estate can move quickly through this process, certain parties can still make claims against an estate. These claims can lead to litigation, which can drain an estate's funds. Mike can represent your interests in estate litigation and be at your side to guide you through the process.
