Estate Planning and Administration Attorney

Estate Planning

"In this World nothing can be said to be certain,

except Death and Taxes." Benjamin Franklin


 Estate Planning has a lot to do with those two things. Avoiding both would be ideal, but reality says that we have to plan for both. 


 When most people think of Estate Planning they think of the following documents:

  • Wills
  • Powers of Attorney (General and Medical)
  • Advanced Medical Directives (also known as Living Wills)
  • Trusts

Estate Administration

 "The Administration of an Estate can be a long and tedious process, but we are there every step of the way."


Estate Administration can be very complicated if the deceased did not take the time to make a comprehensive plan for his/her Estate. We are however very experienced in dealing with Estates of all shapes and sizes. 

Estate Administration deals with some of the following documents:

  • Wills - Probate and Qualification
  • Trusts - Funding, Administration and Filing Timely Accountings when necessary
  • Accounting - Estate Tax Returns, Fiduciary Income Tax Returns and Individual Tax Returns
