Meet Our
Estates
Team


Estate and succession planning is critical to minimize the payment of taxes and fees by your estate and the stress your family could experience if you do not organize your affairs. Having properly drafted Powers of Attorney will ensure that if you ever become incapable of making important decisions about your property or your personal care, those decisions will be made by someone you choose, not the government or the Court.

If you are involved in litigation, we can help you. We provide trial services – it’s what we love to do. Litigation can be tough and gruelling – you need to play it smart and you need the best counsel. While every effort should be made to try to avoid Court litigation, sometimes it is necessary. Lawyer up, if you need to – consider us as your best choice.
