Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that choosing an estate planning or business attorney is an important decision. We're here to help every step of the way. View our frequently asked questions or reach out to our team for more information about our services.

What is Estate Planning?

When someone passes away, his or her property must somehow pass to another person. In the United States, any competent adult has the right to choose the manner in which his or her assets are distributed after his or her passing. A proper estate plan also involves strategies to minimize potential estate taxes and settlement costs as well as to coordinate what would happen with your home, your investments, your business, your life insurance, your employee benefits (such as a 401K plan), and other property in the event of death or disability.

Is a will enough?

If you leave your estate to your loved ones using a will, everything you own will pass through probate.  The process can be expensive, time-consuming and open to the public.  The probate court is in control of the process until the estate has been settled and distributed.

What is Probate, and why does everyone want to avoid it?

When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often goes through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration where the assets of the deceased are managed and distributed. If your loved one owned his or her assets through a properly drafted and funded Living Trust, it is likely that no court-managed administration is necessary, though the successor trustee needs to administer the distribution of the deceased. The length of time needed to complete probate of an estate depends on the size and complexity of the estate as well as the rules and schedule of the local probate court.

What business services do you offer?

Our firm advises and represents companies and entrepreneurs with a broad range of business-related services.  We advise our clients on business law, start-up assistance relating to the formation of an entity, the protection of a trademark or license agreement and assist with buying or selling a business.
