ESTATE PLANNING & PROBATE

Wills, Trusts, Conservatorships

Contrary to what many people think, estate planning is essential for individuals and families, for modest and large estates. At its core, estate planning is less about money and property, but rather it is about family. A properly drafted Last Will & Testament provides your loved ones with detailed instructions of what to do with your property, possessions, children, and even pets. A well-considered estate plan provides harmony and peace of mind to your family.

In assisting you plan your estate, we always endeavor to develop strategies that promote family harmony and reduce the likelihood of discord. We strive to treat each client not only with professional competence, but also with kindness and concern. We never lose sight of the fact that the matters we have been entrusted to handle are deeply personal and confidential. We honor our clients’ expectations that we treat the ‘privileged glimpses’ into their lives with sensitivity.
