Her practice extends from probating simple wills and the administration of small estates to large complex multimillion dollar estates and trusts. She will assist you as the executor, administrator, trustee, beneficiary or heir and make sure that you not only fulfill all your fiduciary duties, but also maximize your inheritance.
When you seek our help, we make sure that you also understand each step as the process as it unfolds by providing as much information as we can so that you are comfortable with our legal services and you can make informed decisions regarding your loved one’s estate and most of all in carrying out their wishes. We will ensure that assets pass on according to the decedent’s expressed desires and receive all the tax benefits available. We work with clients to protect their interests and the best interests of the estates and do so with the least amount of expense and exposure to tax liability. We want to maximize your inheritance.
