    Guardianship/Conservatorship

    When your loved ones can no longer make financial and monetary decisions on their own and have not provided someone with a power of attorney, it is often necessary to petition the court for guardianship and/or conservatorship.

    This is a complex process and requires gathering financial and medical documentation to present to the court for approval.  We will work with you through this confusing process to make it easy and help ease your mind.

    Trusts

    We can help you establish a trust, based on your situation. Trusts are often set up to maintain privacy, avoid probate and provide for care should you become incapacitated.

    There are many different types of trusts, including:

    Revocable, Irrevocable, Testamentary, Charitable Remainder, and Charitable Lead Trusts

    Probation, Administration & Estate Litigation

    Probate

    If a person dies with a will, their estate must be probated. We assist in preparing the petition for the court, notifying debtors, and creditors and attending hearings to get the executor appointed.

    Administration

    In some cases, when one dies without a will, it is necessary to file a Petition for Administration. We assist in preparing these documents, notifying the appropriate parties.

    Estate Litigation

    We have experience in the rough and tumble world of estate litigation. While we would love for everyone to get along, our firm never stays away from fighting to make sure the last wishes of your loved one are carried through.
