Estate Planning

Wills, Trusts, and Probate

Many people are uncomfortable dealing with the idea of their own death. Most people need some sort of estate plan to provide for their family and loved ones after they are gone. Parents may need to provide for guardianship and the financial needs of their minor children through the establishment of a Trust. Moreover, single and divorced people need an estate plan to direct the disposition of their assets after they die, otherwise the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will do this for them.

Probate Administration and Litigation

Many matters are brought into Probate Court for resolution. Upon death, a party's Will needs to be probated. But, advanced planning can help you avoid having assets tied up in probate for years. Probate litigation can occur when people fail to create a competent estate plan, or when there is a contest or dispute surrounding an estate. Our firm can help make the complex process of probating a will simple and will also fight for you to defend or prosecute a probate claim.
