Our Focus

We help our clients plan for the future by developing specific estate plans to protect their assets and transfer their wealth to desired beneficiaries. Such assistance may include:
 

  • The preparation of wills
  • The preparation of trusts and powers of attorney
  • Advising on tax-efficient succession of family owned businesses and farming operations
  • Estate administration
  • Filing and probating of wills
  • Litigating disputed issues
  • Distribution of property
  • Assisting with a variety of government benefits issues and planning

How We Help

It’s your property and your decision as to who gets it after you pass away. We help you plan, draft the necessary documents, and make sure that your desires are respected. The creation of a will or trust does not have to be a complicated process, and the long-term benefits far outweigh the time it takes to set up an estate plan now.

The courts and the government will not distribute your assets how you would like them distributed, but developing and executing an estate plan would. We create client-specific plans tailored to your needs and wants. We help you avoid probate, avoid distribution disputes, and avoid preventable tax ramifications and expenses so that your beneficiaries receive what you want.

Who We Help

Our clients include everyone from people with typical assets, such as a house, car, retirement account and life insurance, to those with more extensive assets, including real estate, rental properties, businesses, farming operations, and investment portfolios.

Our clients range from young couples who need a basic will or establish a trust for the protection of their minor children to wealthy couples and individuals with substantial estate tax exposure. Regardless of family size, we can help prepare your estate plan.

It’s never too soon to plan for the future. Don’t just read about planning. Take the next step and call us today.
