Do You Need a Will, a Trust or Full Estate Plan?
Estate planning is a discipline that requires strong financial acumen and a commitment to staying informed on changes in the law. These are clear strengths of my law practice. I draft wills, powers of attorney, health care directives and other essential documents for clients with basic estate planning needs. These are the documents nearly every adult should have in place to ensure his or her wishes are carried out in the event of death or disability.
I also draft a wide range of trusts —irrevocable as well as revocable or "living trusts," special needs trusts, and other types selected and customized for your individual circumstances. These are services not all White Bear Lake area estate planning attorneys are equipped to provide.
My estate planning clients receive much more than forms and filings. I will take the time to understand your needs, identify issues you should consider and explain not only options — but what those options mean to you. My services are efficient and affordable, always beginning with a free consultation.
Skilled Representation in Will Contests and Trust Administration Disputes
One of the most sensitive situations that can arise involving an estate is a dispute between surviving family members — the heirs and beneficiaries. Changes made in the weeks and months prior to death are often questioned, and basic mistrust or other personal issues may factor in. It is critical to recognize, however, that the costs of litigation can quickly approach or exceed the amount in dispute.
As a skilled negotiator, mediator and litigator, I am well prepared to investigate allegations of undue influence, a breach of fiduciary duty or other wrongdoing and fight to protect your interests. You can count on me to keep you constantly informed and keep your legal costs as affordable as possible.
