Areas of Practice

Since 1985, we’ve focused on a select, few areas of law rather than a wide spectrum.  Our 60+ years of combined legal experience in these areas makes us well-seasoned, recognized authorities in these areas of law.  
If you are looking for attorneys who are focused, have extensive experience, are personable and detail-oriented, then your search is over - you’ve found us.

We assist individuals, couples and families in setting up estate plans to protect themselves and their loved ones.  Estate plans often include Trusts, Wills, Powers of Attorney for Property and Healthcare, Living Wills, Transfer on Death Instruments, and updating beneficiary designations.  Estate planning goals can include preserving assets, preparing for your own potential disability (or that of a loved one), directing your legacy, naming beneficiaries, fulfilling charitable intent, maintaining privacy, ensuring your children inherit at more mature ages, naming guardians for minor children, avoiding estate taxes, avoiding probate and avoiding legal guardianship, and more.
