  Estate Planning and Estate Administration
We offer a full range of estate planning services including the preparation of wills, living trusts, children’s trusts, tax shelter trusts, and powers of attorney. We make recommendations, where appropriate, on alternatives to probate, on the income tax consequences of estate planning decisions, and on how estate taxes can be minimized. We assist clients who have philanthropic interests to understand their options for making charitable gifts during life and at death.

For domestic partners and civil union partners, we prepare customized plans and documents (such as civil union agreements, domestic partnership agreements, property agreements, and support agreements) that are geared toward protection of the partner and the children where the law might otherwise be silent.

For elders, for persons with disabilities, and for their families, we assist with planning for care and with optimizing available funds. Where a court-supervised guardianship is sought, we make recommendations for collaborating counsel to represent the caregiver or the affected person.

We also advise the family and represent fiduciaries in estate administration matters, including probate and the non-probated transfer of assets through trusts, beneficiary designations and joint tenancy.

Where disputes arise, we make recommendations for attorneys who will represent heirs or fiduciaries in the litigation or mediation of contested estates and trusts.
