With regard to estate planning, we work with clients to prepare or revise will, trusts, durable powers of attorney, and other estate planning documents.  Much of our work involves consulting with clients to decide just what documents are necessary or helpful.  Another significant area of our work involves helping clients to fund their trusts; or in other words, transfer assets into trust ownership.
With regard to probate, we work with clients to help settle the affairs of loved ones after a death.  This often means helping clients to settle trusts privately with their families, but it sometimes involves us helping families work through the probate court process when that is necessary.  It often involves preparing a decedent's final income tax return or a return for a trust or estate (a fiduciary In addition to finalizing estates following a death, we work with clients to protect their parents or other senior citizens who have become confused as the result of age or illness.  This might require that we resort to the probate courts for appointment of a guardian or a conservator.
The time following a death is often confusing as well as emotional.  Likewise, the period during which a parent becomes increasingly confused and disoriented is usually frought with frustration and anxiety.  Knowing that we can only do a part of it, we still attempt to help our clients through these trying times.
