When a Loved One
Has Died



Protecting Your Assets

We help clients to make sure they’re well cared for and receive important government medical benefits including Medicare, Medicaid and VA Veterans benefits. We help make sure your estate will be preserved for your family and loved one, instead of letting your nest egg be wiped out by high nursing home and other costs of care.


Estate Planning

Planning For the Future

“Estate planning” means preparing for the transfer of a your wealth and assets after your death. Through the use of Wills, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Trusts, Deeds, Family Agreements, gifts, and other strategies, we help you preserve your hard-earned money for future generations and minimize expenses.


Estate Administration

After a Loved One Has Died

After a loved one has died the burden, uncertainty and responsibility of dealing with the affairs of your loved one can be overwhelming to family members. We act for you; helping you to fairly and efficiently “administer the estate:” winding up the affairs of your loved one, including settling all inheritance, estate and tax issues.



Protecting Property

We assist with all your real estate transactions, including tax assessment appeals, buying and selling, borrowing, lending and leases. We also help prevent or resolve disputes involving real estate.
