Estate planning and probate are two practice areas that work closely together.

  • Estate planning refers to the decisions and documentation that an individual drafts to clearly stipulate the disposition of one's assets. Estate planning documents typically include wills, trusts and powers of attorney. These documents can be as general or specific as desired. This practice area may also include advice on aspects of elder law as appropriate.
  • Probate administration refers to the process of distribution, administration and dispute resolution that occurs following a loved one's or family member's untimely death. Our firm advises and represents fiduciaries, heirs and family members in all phases of estate administration. This may also include establishing a Probate Court Guardianship for a loved one or family member who no longer can manage his or her affairs.
