Thorough Representation You Can Trust

Combining broad knowledge in business law, tax law and elder law, I can represent you in all types of estate planning issues, including:

  • Wills
  • Living wills
  • Revocable and irrevocable trusts
  • Pet trusts
  • Medical powers of attorney
  • Business succession planning
  • Conservation easements
  • Probate litigation

As a tax lawyer, I can help advise you about tax savings and other tax matters involved with estate planning. After I have drafted an estate planning document for you, I will check in with you each year to see whether you want to make changes.

Divorce and Remarriage

In the case of divorce, I will help you amend estate planning documents to change the executor of the estate or beneficiaries. If you have remarried, you can include a new spouse or step-children.

In estate planning matters, it is important to make provisions that will prevent future conflicts between family members and avoid will contests. You can trust that I will draft documents that represent your interests and meet your goals.
