Practice/Industry Group Overview
We assist individuals and families in all aspects of trust and estate planning and administration, as well as charitable trust and foundation planning, powers of attorney, and living wills. From the simplest to the most sophisticated of plans, our attorneys work closely with each client to develop an estate plan that best meets individual needs and desires, while minimizing the tax burden to heirs. We take the time to consider every aspect of an individual's particular circumstances as we assist in creating and implementing a plan.
We also provide assistance in the administration of estates. We understand that coping with the loss of a loved one is never easy. Using our many years of experience, we provide professional and efficient estate administration services, lessening your concerns and allowing you to focus on the rest of your family life.
With in-depth experience working with family-owned businesses, we help clients structure and implement plans to effectively transition of ownership, control and management from one generation to another. For banks, trust companies, colleges and other institutional clients, we handle planning for special gifts and matters involving fiduciary and tax issues.
When the need arises, our attorneys call on the substantial resources of the firm to represent individual clients, corporations and institutions in a range of trusts and estates litigation, and we are experienced in cases involving will contests, trust and fiduciary litigation and guardianship proceedings.
