Estate planning is much more than merely drafting trust documents. It involves learning and truly understanding your specific needs and goals to provide and protect your family in the future.


During the already difficult and emotional time surrounding a loved one's passing, many families also must deal with navigating the confusing and tricky world of the probate court. Any estate of a certain value without a trust must be probated.

Trust Administration

Being appointed Trustee of a loved one's trust or Executor(ix) of someone's will can be a daunting task. We assist clients in all aspects of the administration of an estate or trust.
