How We Can Help

Kids Protection Plan

One of our areas of greatest passions is in planning for the well-being and care of the children you love

Estate Planning

Do you know beyond a shadow of a doubt what would happen legally and financially to you, your loved ones, your money and everything else you care about if something unexpected happened to you?

Asset Protection Planning

The more success you have, especially in business, professional practice or real estate activities, the more at risk you are as others see your success grow.

Estate Tax Protection

At your Family Wealth Planning Session, we can go into detail about how you can minimize the potential tax burden faced by your family so that you can maximize the inheritance you pass on to your loved ones.

Elder Law & Medicaid Planning

Elder law involves a number of issues that are intertwined with traditional estate planning. With such exorbitant costs of long-term care, it is no wonder we are facing a looming elder-care crisis in this country.


Probate is a process through the court system to ensure the legal transfer of assets from the deceased’s name to the names of the deceased’s legal heirs or beneficiaries.

Trust Administration

Trying to handle the technical details during a time of loss can be a challenge. We are here to help.


Whether through illness, injury, or mental decline, anyone can require a guardian or conservator to care for them if they become mentally or physically incapacitated.
