General practice law with strong concentrations
While we provide services, counsel and representation for a wide range of legal matters, we have accumulated significant experience in several practice areas, including:
Estate planning — To ensure as much of your estate gets passed along to those you love and cherish, we help you formulate strategies that will minimize your eventual estate’s tax liabilities. We also help you in choosing the appropriate executor and in establishing any special needs trusts, irrevocable or revocable (“living”) trusts, guardianships and living wills you may require.
Business formation — Fledgling businesses benefit from our advice regarding which type of entity and tax structures are the most appropriate, and how best to limit owners’ personal liability. We remain at your service as your business matures, too, offering advice on insurance coverage, corporate compliance issues, and the drafting and/or review of contracts and buy-sell agreements.
Trusts and estates — We provide you with wills and trusts, and we can help in probating your will and assisting executors in transferring assets to your loved ones, estate valuation and locating beneficiaries.
