Estate Planning, Wills And Trusts
Whether you have made the decision that now is the time to plan for your estate, or you are wondering how to proceed following the death of a loved one, you likely share one common concern: You don’t want to entrust important family matters to just anyone.
With more than three decades of experience helping people throughout Montana, California, and North Dakota, we know there are few things more personal than sitting down to discuss how you want to divide your estate, or figuring out how to carry out a deceased loved one’s wishes. You want a lawyer who understands the law, of course, but you also want one who will take the time to get to know you and your unique concerns, and who understands how important these issues are to you and your family.
If you are seeking a lawyer who values one-on-one client interaction as much as providing sound legal advice, we encourage you to contact our firm to arrange a private consultation.
