Trusts, Wills, and Estates
The firm’s trusts and estates practice concentrates on the areas of estate and gift tax planning, charitable gift planning, probate and estate administration, guardianships, conservatorships, will contests and disputes among beneficiaries and/or fiduciaries. Our estate planning attorneys assist clients in developing estate plans ranging from simple to highly sophisticated. Our plans provide for the orderly disposition of a client’s assets during lifetime and/or at death and take into consideration such factors as asset disposition and protection, guardianships/trusts for children, business succession, charitable bequests, and associated tax implications. As part of our estate plans, we also recommend and prepare durable powers of attorney and living wills.

- Estate Planning

In addition, the firm has extensive experience in the representation of beneficiaries and fiduciaries in estate and probate litigation, including will contests, questions of interpretations of wills and trusts, and guardianship proceedings.
