Estate Planning

 

Estate Planning is probably summed up best by the term “planning.” Our firm utilizes a results oriented approach. Rather than turning to traditional methods of drafting documents that reflect what we think a client wants, we take a holistic approach by getting to know our clients and offering different suggestions and options based upon our client’s ultimate goals. 


Some of the documents that we may use in creating a plan include:

  • Last Will and Testaments
  • Revocable Living Trusts
  • Joint Trusts
  • Community Property Trusts
  • Asset Protection Trusts
  • Spendthrift Trusts
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Healthcare Powers of Attorney
  • Advanced Medical Directives (i.e., Living Wills)
  • Prenuptial Agreements

Business Law

 

Whether you are currently operating a business or would like to form a new business, our experienced attorneys will guide you in your decision making and ensure proper formation of your new entity, as well as appropriate maintenance and administration of an existing business. 


We assist our clients in the following:

  • Formation of Limited Liability Companies, Corporations, Professional Corporations, Limited Partnerships, and many other business structures
  • Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Amendments to Corporate Charters and ByLaws

Elder Law & Special Needs Law

 

The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys defines Elder Law not with a technical legal description, but defines Elder Law as the type of client served. Servicing senior citizens and individuals with special needs encompasses its own set of challenges and requires drawing from a vast array of knowledge and experience. 


In an effort to meet those needs, we offer the following services:

  • Medicaid Qualifying Trusts (including Miller’s Trusts or Qualified Income Trusts)
  • Disability Planning
  • Conservatorships and Guardianships
  • Special Needs Trusts
