Our office offers a variety of services to provide for many of your legal needs.
Our office works with individuals, married couples, and unmarried couples to create an estate plan that will protect their assets and their loved ones. A typical estate plan includes a Will, a Living Will, a Durable Power of Attorney, and a Healthcare Power of Attorney. Together, these four documents establish the security you will need for yourself and your family throughout your life.
We recommend revisiting your estate planning at least once every ten years, or more often if you or your family undergoes important changes. We are also happy to review any estate planning that you had drafted by another attorney. Please contact us for our most current pricing.
After the death of a loved one, our office will work hard to ensure that your journey through the probate process is as smooth as possible. There are several methods of handling the assets of a deceased loved one, and we ask that you please contact us with your unique situation so that we can help you accordingly.
For those who wish to help their families avoid the probate process, our office is able to provide you with an alternative. We will work to draft a trust that will fit the specific needs of you and your family. In addition, we will continue to work with you after the trust has been created to ensure that your assets are fully protected by the trust.
We are also happy to work with you to amend a trust created by us or any other attorney to properly safeguard your assets. Prices may vary depending on the complexity of the trust, so please contact us in order to learn more.
When the time arises, we are available to help you administer assets held in a trust. The process can be complicated and can involve multiple entities holding cash, shares of stock, bonds, real estate, or personal property. But whether the trust will require a yearly review, or whether the trust will distribute assets and then close, we will help walk you through the necessary steps as smoothly as possible.
Divorce and Dissolution
There are many factors that can complicate a divorce or dissolution, including custody of minor children, division of assets and real estate, and child and/or spousal support.

Whatever your concerns may be, our office is prepared to help you through this difficult process as efficiently and compassionately as possible.
In the area of Juvenile Law, our office focuses on guardian ad litem work. A guardian ad litem is sometimes appointed as part of a divorce and represents the best interests of a child/children. If you believe this is necessary or helpful in your case, please contact your attorney.
