A common misunderstanding is that only the wealthy require the counsel of an attorney to manage their estate; draft a will, trust, guardianship and health care directive.

Estate planning is necessary and unique for all individuals. It is essential to meet the individual’s needs as they age, to fulfill their stated goals in the distribution of their assets, and to assure that their loved ones are taken care of upon their death or disability. Even simple estates can be handled more efficiently, in less time, and with often less tax liability, if an attorney is consulted.

Our Estate Law Department makes available to each and every client their vast experience in these matters. Their knowledge and insight, integrity, thoughtful and diligent manner, allows our clients the opportunity to explore the many options available to best meet their needs and desires.

As a full service firm, our dedicated resources extend through the planning and administration to probate and trust litigation of the individual’s estate.

Elder Law

In conjunction with estate planning, Elder Law and related planning are important. We provide advice regarding lifetime assistance and healthcare directives through the use of living wills, power of attorney, and guardianships.
