We analyze, design, and document outright gifts and gifts through trusts, such as education, life insurance, charitable remainder, charitable lead, and generation skipping trusts. We form entities to hold, manage, and transfer from one generation to the next, family wealth and investments through family foundations, family partnerships, and limited liability companies.
Our probate practice focuses on the efficient and prompt administration of estates. We have helped clients to administer and settle large, complex, and contested estates. We regularly process routine probates on a cost-effective basis.
