Estate and Trust Administration


Our services include advising trustees and executors throughout the estate administration and probate process, including resolving family disputes, creditor claims, representing estates in probate proceedings and preparing estate inventories and federal and state estate tax returns. Our emphasis is on working with our clients to resolve family disputes, when possible, through creative strategies including the use of family settlement agreements.

We handle guardianship estates for disabled adults and children. We work with families to determine if a guardianship is needed, and counsel families in drafting and administering special needs trusts for disabled children and adults.
