Estate & Trust Planning/Estate & Trust Administration/Elder Law

The attorneys in the Estate & Trust Planning/Estate & Trust Administration/Elder Law Department serve as legal counsel, advisors and trustees to individuals and families, many of whom are successful businesses owners.  Our goal is to assist clients in reaching their estate planning goals by advising them in the creation and administration of trusts, estates and charitable giving, including Supplemental Needs Trusts for disabled and challenged individuals.  In addition, attorneys in this department focus on elder law and provide advice to clients regarding asset protection, medical assistance and adult guardianship.

The range of services includes the preparation of wills and trusts, advise on estate gift and income tax implications, trust and estate administration services, and structuring of family businesses to facilitate succession and asset protection plans. Our attorneys serve clients using their significant individual experience and other firm resources, including the support of the Business Services, Real Estate, Litigation and Financial Services Departments.
