Wills, Estates, Powers of Attorney and Probate
We provide estate planning and probate services to individuals with a holistic approach. The services provided include the preparation of wills and trusts, powers of attorney and medical directives, analysis of tax ramifications of testamentary transfers, and the handling of estate matters . Where probate is required, we can provide counsel and administrative services, including representation of personal representatives in probate proceedings, sale of real estate and distribution of assets. Our goal is to provide what is necessary to families to resolve such matters efficiently and carefully.
We help buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate to complete their transactions with as few surprises as possible. We strive to provide cost effective benefit. Thirty years of experience, and years of dealing with distressed real estate in bankruptcy (with its often-complex title problems) help us meet this goal. In our experience, careful, timely and knowledgeable attention to details, before settlement is the key to making these transactions as painless as possible and a successful and pleasant experience for all concerned.
