Estate Planning Support
Proper estate planning is necessary for successful asset protection and allocation. The first step in protecting your assets and communicating your wishes to your beneficiaries is through the creation of a will or trust. We can help you draft your will and assist you in establishing trusts to protect and distribute assets. Our lawyers can also answer any questions about probate and will contests.
We can handle the creation of any type of estate planning documents and designations, including:
- Living wills
- Advance health care directives
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts
- Powers of attorney (medical or financial)
- Charitable trusts
- Special needs trusts
If a loved one dies without a will or their estate meets specific criteria, our attorneys can help you through the probate process. We also represent trustees in their management of a trust for which they are the fiduciary. If you feel that a trustee or personal representative is not properly handling your estate or an estate in which you are a beneficiary, there may have been a breach of fiduciary duty. In any of these situations, CLG can provide the advice and representation you need to solve the problem.
