Lawyers for Estates, Elder Law and Asset Protection
When it’s time to plan your estate or update your existing estate plan, finding estate planning lawyers with proven experience is essential. Our estate planning lawyers have the expertise to help you develop wealth-protection strategies and create estate plans to suit your specific long-term needs. We stay abreast of innovative estate planning techniques and relevant changes in the law through regular attendance and lecturing at continuing legal education events. At the same time, we take pride in our ability to present complex legal and financial concepts and tax information in clear, understandable terms for:
  • Estate planning
  • Elder law
  • Estate, gift, and income tax planning
  • Probate/Estate administration 
  • Asset protection planning
  • Trust administration
  • Business formation
  • Prenuptial and property agreements
  • NFA gun trusts
Some aging clients worry that estate planning may involve giving all of their assets to heirs and not having enough funds to live on. However, proper comprehensive estate planning helps manage and preserve your assets when you need them, and preserves their distribution after you pass. Estate planning is an important part of every financial plan, no matter the size of the estate. It's also an area that is often overlooked. With the right planning, you can save yourself, and your loved ones, time, trouble, and money and achieve peace of mind.
