Elder Law & Estate Planning

Elder law is a growing and evolving area of practice and our law firm continues to be at the forefront, leading its development.

Because your needs and life circumstances change, our lawyers will work directly with you to create an estate plan to meet your needs at your stage in life.

We often represent newly married couples or those who have recently welcomed a child and need help creating a will for the first time. As life continues, it is sometimes necessary to modify an existing estate plan after a death in the family, a divorce or other significant life change. With retirement planning, there are often a number of issues related to protecting assets and planning for future generations.

Even without a life-changing event, an estate plan should be reviewed every couple of years to ensure that it is still relevant and that the terms still apply to your current circumstances.
