Estate Planning
Establishing and keeping up-to-date a comprehensive estate plan (e.g. a Revocable Living Trust; Will; Power of Attorney; and Advance Health Care Directive) is extremely beneficial.  A modest investment in a customized estate plan can save you and your loved ones considerable time, money and inconvenience.

Trust Administration
All Trust stakeholders – settlors who establish the trust, trustees who manage the trust and beneficiaries who have beneficial interests – can benefit from professional consultation about the rules and requirements applicable to this important legal instrument. Hiring experienced legal counsel is nearly always necessary or appropriate to advise these stakeholders about how to protect themselves in the process of fulfilling their obligations and asserting their rights.

Probate Administration
Probate – a long, complex court estate administration proceeding – is generally required for those who die without a funded Living Trust. Navigating the process and satisfying the myriad requirements can be daunting.  Choosing a sensitive, diligent and experienced probate attorney can make a world of difference. Learn more.

Real Estate
Investing in real estate can be rewarding, yet challenging.  In many circumstances, legal advice is often helpful, and sometimes essential, these circumstances including: making titling decisions; structuring, drafting and negotiating purchase/sale agreements, lease agreements and joint ownership agreements; and documenting loans secured by real estate.  Learn more.
