Adoptions

If you are considering adopting a child, our attorneys can help guide you through the adoption process. We understand that this is an exciting and emotional process that can also be extremely stressful. Let us help you know what to expect and ensure that your case is handled properly.

Estate

Often times, when a loved one dies, we don’t know where to begin. Whether or not the deceased left a Will, our attorneys can help you decide if you need to open an estate with the probate court to distribute the assets of your loved one and help you navigate the probate process.

Guardianships

A guardian is a person who is appointed as a representative by the court to make decisions on behalf of another. Our attorneys can assist you with either a guardianship of a minor child or guardianship of an incapacitated adult (typically an elderly family member).

Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney allows you to designate someone to make decisions for you in advance of when you need them. Our attorneys can help you draft a Durable POA to appoint someone to make your financial decisions and a Health Care POA for medical decisions.

Trusts

A trust is an estate planning document that allows you to help your heirs avoid probate court by transferring your assets into the trust, which is managed by a trustee that has been designated by you, for the benefit of your heirs. Our attorneys can help you decide if this is the best option for your needs.

Wills

A will is an estate planning tool that allows you to determine how your assets will be distributed after your death. Creating a will ensures that your wishes are properly carried out. Having a will also speeds up the probate process so your heirs will receive their inheritance quicker.
