Planning your estate is an important aspect of every adult life – not just seniors – and there is more to estate planning than wills and trusts. We also aid our clients in documentation of living wills, durable power of attorney, healthcare surrogates, formal and summary administration, and guardianship administration. Our help also goes beyond the passing of a loved one by helping you navigate through probate proceedings in order to transfer funds and property into your name or to carry out the desires of your loved ones will.
Part of estate planning includes guardianship administration, who will care for your minor children should you pass away before they become of legal age but there are other aspects of guardianship we help families plan for. This includes filing for legal guardianship after your disabled child turns 18 and planning for their future.
Our practice frequently assists in handling negotiated settlements and trial proceedings during personal injury accidents such as slip and falls on commercial or residential properties and auto accidents. Trying to receive adequate compensation from the neglectful party’s insurance can be difficult when the insurance company’s attorneys attempt to hinder you every step of the way. With our legal guidance we can help you retrieve the compensation you are owed.
