Protecting assets that have taken a lifetime to accumulate, managing property that has been the family for generations, and making long-term provisions for beneficiaries affect people both personally and financially in profound ways. We understand and are here to help both those wishing to distribute their wealth and those who stand to inherit.
We advise individuals on conservation of assets, estate planning, and orderly transfer of property during or after life, tax implications of such planning, and litigation involving the aftermath. Our services involve wills, trust agreements, powers of attorney, and other necessary documents; preparation of income, gift and estate tax returns, and assistance in both dependent and intendent administration of estates and guardianships.
Sometimes, despite best efforts to the contrary, disputes can arise out of inheritance that can threaten the fabric of families and the intent of the recently deceased. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in handling such disputes. We handle these disputes with the competency and force necessary to achieve our clients’ goals.
