We offer advice on all matters of private client work and estate planning. The firm has a long history of managing lifetime and will trusts. Some of the trusts we manage were set up over 70 years ago.

If you do not make a will, statute dictates how your assets are transferred. Unmarried partners do not automatically inherit their partner’s estate.
