to your legacy
Proper estate planning preserves wealth and provides peace of mind. It can ensure that you have access to the support and resources that you need throughout your life, and can assist you in avoiding negative tax consequences and other financial burdens on your estate. A will is only one of the tools we can give you.
We assist you in planning for the financial security of the people and causes that you care about. Our knowledgeable lawyers will meet with you to discuss the preparation of wills, powers of attorney, and representation agreements. Our firm can assist with advising trustees, implementing family trusts, and conducting estate and trust litigation.
If you have been made the executor of an estate, we can advise you of your legal obligations and responsibilities, and successfully guide you through the process. If a family member has died without a will, also known as intestate, we can initiate an application to the court to request that you be made administrator of that estate.
If you would like to challenge the terms of a will that are unfair, or if you have concerns about the capacity of, or influence on, a will-maker, we can advise you of your options.
