Representing Clients Who Can't Speak for Themselves

Planning your estate can be complicated. Let our experience speak for itself as we guide you through the creation of wills & irrevocable trusts, power of attorney, and land trusts. Your real estate, cars, and treasures need to be accounted for in your estate plan so they can be distributed to your loved ones once you pass away.

No matter how old you are or how large your estate is, it is smart to establish an estate plan as soon as possible. Should you pass away or become incompetent unexpectedly soon, you need to have a thorough plan in writing so your family can save time, money, and worry through the process of probate.

Without wills, trusts, or power of attorney, your assets will be allocated by the courts during probate. Their decisions may not accurately reflect how you would have liked them, so speak to an attorney for help.

Much like estate planning, filing for bankruptcy can cause a lot of unnecessary headaches, especially if you choose to file without the guidance of an experienced attorney to help you make life-changing decisions.

Whether Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is best for you, we'll be there to help you eliminate your debt and take control of your finances. If you're not sure which chapter is best for your unique circumstances, our skilled legal team can help you explore your options to lead to the most favorable outcome possible.
