Counseling families through the loss of a loved one followed by the administration of the estate and eventual transfer of wealth in a cost effective manner requires experience. We routinely advise Trustees, Executors, Administrators and Beneficiaries of their obligations and rights.
Whether you are the executor/trustee, beneficiary of a will or trust seeking out experienced advice after the death of a family member is important. Special care must be taken to maintain family relationships and aggressively make the best estate and income tax decisions.
Farm families offer unique challenges for the administration of an estate. Since 1977 our attorneys have been providing guidance in this area, be it the differing goals of farming heirs vs. off farm heirs, managing complex property divisions, or guiding the family through a private sale or auction.
