Trust and estate planning is for everyone, not just the wealthy or the aging. Anyone can become disabled at any time. One of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones is to establish an estate plan. A well-designed estate plan provides for loved ones, including minor children or aging parents, provides for incapacity, avoids probate at death, reduces or avoids estate taxes, and can even provide for charitable organizations. We meet with individuals and families to review their personal and financial situation, including their needs, concerns, hopes and goals, and explain the options available to them. This may include wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance medical directives, or a combination of these. Once their estate plan is in place, our clients enjoy peace of mind knowing they have provided for themselves and their loved ones in case an unexpected crisis occurs.
Whether you are starting a new business or your company is expanding, our practice offers business clients a full-service attorney experience without the hefty retainers and billing rates of larger firms. We assist business clients with all types of transactions and issues that arise in the development and operation of a business, including the selection and formation of business entities, mergers and acquisitions of businesses or assets, contract drafting and negotiations, employment matters, succession planning, protecting your brand, and licensing. We are your “general counsel,” looking out for your best interests and meeting the demanding needs of your growing business.
