Our Practice

Estate Planning

We interview every client in person and in depth to make sure we understand your circumstances and needs. Then we give our best recommendation about what type of Will or Living Trust you should consider. Working with us, you decide what best fits your situation and an attorney prepares a specific Will or Living Trust individually tailored to your needs. We also assist in the transfer of assets to Living Trusts.

Powers of Attorney

We advise clients about and prepare Powers of Attorney for Health Care, Directives to Physicians (Living Wills), and Powers of Attorney for Property to prepare for a time when you may become incapacitated or otherwise unable to handle your personal affairs.

Probate & Trust Administration

Has a friend or family member recently died and you are unsure of what needs to happen legally? We offer a free initial consultation about your situation and guidance about what lies ahead. We routinely represent administrators, executors, and trustees in probate and trust administration proceedings following the death of an individual.


Are you involved in a situation where you are assisting a friend or family member with declining capacity? If a Power of Attorney, Living Trust, or other arrangement is not available, we represent clients in conservatorship proceedings and would be happy to help assess your situation.

Trust & Estate Litigation

When plans go wrong following a person's death, heirs and beneficiaries often find themselves in the midst of threatened or ongoing litigation. We offer services to clients in the area of trust, estate, and probate litigation.
