We can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts if they would be beneficial to your estate.

Probate

Trust disputes

We represent both trustees and beneficiaries in trust litigation cases.  We offer reasonable rates and creative solutions to preserve trust corpus.  We advise beneficiaries of their rights under trust instruments and advise trustees of their duties to beneficiaries.
