Estate Planning and Probate

Estate planning and probate issues involve important, difficult areas of concern for our clients. With changing estate tax laws and regulations, our comprehensive approach becomes even more important and advantageous to our clients. Our extensive business and real estate experience adds depth and allows for comprehensive treatment of estate planning for our clients. Special needs of family members and other beneficiaries are addressed carefully, and estate management for the benefit of the principal grantors is addressed to anticipate potential incapacity of the principal grantors. Comprehensive estate planning involves much more than just avoiding probate. It is important to consider long-term management to assist estate beneficiaries, plan for individualized treatment of the benefeciaries’ special needs, and provide for seamless management during and after the grantors’ lifetimes, all with an eye to limiting conflict and litigation.

When probate becomes necessary, we seek to efficiently address the needs of the estate and the client. When probate litigation arises, or when it is otherwise necessary, we strive to resolve matters efficiently and bring peace to the family and the estate as quickly as possible. We are experienced in the total range of probate, from simple informal probate to complex formal litigation. For questions concerning probate or estate planning issues, contact Paul M. King.”
