Estate Planning, Administration & Litigation

Within Practice Area:

While nobody likes to think about it, the inevitable will happen to all of us at some point. Therefore, having an estate plan is a wise and responsible decision for all people, not just for the wealthy. Estate planning is an important and necessary step to ensure that your wishes are carried out and estate administration makes sure your estate is properly settled. Unfortunately, sometimes even with the best planning and administration, disputes still arise which can lead to estate litigation. Our team handles all three phases: estate planning, estate administration, and estate litigation.
