Our Firm


Our three partners have over 60 years of combined experience in these areas.

Because of our reputation and the breadth of our experience, other attorneys frequently refer matters to our firm with unusual and difficult facts and issues. In addition to our expertise in the area of estate and guardianship administration, we are also well qualified to provide estate planning services to our clients – from simple wills to complex tax planning documents, including many different types of trusts, agreements in contemplation of marriage, powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, and directives to physicians (“living wills”). Our firm is best known for its extensive experience in litigation involving decedent’s estates, trusts and guardianships.  The firm has the highest rating (AV) in Martindale-Hubbell's Law Directory.*

When a parent or friend is suffering from memory loss or some other ailment that necessitates a guardianship for their care, we help take care of the background work. 


The last thing anyone who loses a loved one wants to think about is probating their estate. When a loved one passes away, let us handle the probate of their estate from start to finish. 


We frequently represent parties in any variety of capacities: trustees, estate representatives, beneficiaries, guardians, proposed wards, and everyone in-between. If you have an issue with a trust, estate or guardianship, our attorneys can help.
