Estate Planning and Trust Administration

The future is coming, whether you are ready for it or not. Planning for the future is an important aspect of life. It is important for everyone: families, business owners, mineral owners, landowners, and anyone else who wants to have a say in what happens to his or her person and affairs. There is no cookie-cutter solution for estate planning and each case is as individual as the person involved.

The attorneys in our office will sit down with you and carefully review all relevant information to create a plan that will best serve you and your goals. This could be the creation of a will, trust, power of attorney, health care directive, business entity, or other appropriate mechanism to accomplish your goals.

A well-crafted estate plan should provide for your loved ones in an effective and efficient manner. No matter whether you are concerned mainly with keeping assets in your family or planning for the inheritance of a business, you can rest easier knowing that you will have an advocate on your side whom you can trust.

  • Wills
  • Health care directives
  • Powers of attorney
  • Creation of business entities
  • Tax planning
  • Interpretation of trust agreements
  • Protecting assets from claims for health care
