Transactional & Business Law
We are pleased to represent clients in transactional matters involving their small business or personal affairs. Partner Avery Day leads this work, offering services in all of the general practice categories below:
Estate Planning / Trust and Estate Administration
Proper planning is the best insurance. We can help you plan for an uncertain future by working with you to prepare an estate plan that meets your needs, or assisting families as they probate wills and administer trusts. Specific services include:
Probate of estates and preparation of estate and fiduciary tax returns
If you have encountered an issue or suspect there might be fraudulent activity occurring with an existing power of attorney, will, or trust you are involved in, we can help there as well.
