Individuals and Families

Our estate planning attorneys will assist you in planning for your unique personal and financial situation, whether you need:

  • A basic living trust to provide for your spouse and children after your death;
  • Special needs trust provisions for a disabled child or grandchild;
  • A new estate plan to reflect your changing life situation after a divorce;
  • Planning for a family member experiencing substance abuse, financial instability or other personal challenges;
  • A dynasty trust to provide for generations of your family; or
  • Planning to leave behind a meaningful charitable legacy.

Business Executives

With business executives in public companies, employee benefits often are at the core of an executive's wealth. If this describes you, we will work with you to develop an estate plan for stock options, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), retirement benefits, compensation plans, restricted stock and fringe benefits, and compliance with relevant securities laws.

Whatever your estate objectives, we can design a plan to achieve them.
