Probate

Probate is the legal proceeding that occurs when a person dies.  In most cases, probate can be avoided through the use of a trust instrument.  Gift and estate taxes valuing over $5 million can be saved through the use of a trust that can avoid probating an estate. Learn More.

Estate Planning

Trusts, wills, financial and health care powers of attorney, and living wills are a necessity to safeguard your final wishes, health care decisions, and money.  With careful planning, peace of mind will result from creating these documents.  Learn More.

Trust and Estate Administration

Upon the death of a person who dies with a trust, will, or neither, their estate must be distributed according to the terms of the governing instrument or statute.  Bank accounts must be closed and assets must be distributed to honor the decedent’s final wishes.  Learn More.
