Estate Planning & Trust Administration

Many people work hard their whole lives to protect their families and build their wealth. With effective estate planning, you can continue protecting your loved ones and assets even after you have passed away. An experienced Davis estate planning lawyer can help you prepare the estate planning documents you need to direct how your estate will be handled after your death. We help clients with every element in the estate planning process, including:

  • Wills and living wills
  • Trusts, including living trusts, special needs trusts and tax-planning trusts
  • Trust administration
  • Family limited partnerships
  • Gifts, gift taxes and charitable giving
  • Succession planning
  • Advance health care directives
  • Elder law
  • Powers of attorney
  • Probate
  • Life insurance trusts
  • Planning to avoid taxes

Family Law

Family law cases are among the most emotional cases. When clients contact our firm, we strive to resolve their problems with the least possible emotional trauma and expense. We work with clients in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and collaborative law to craft solutions that meet the unique needs of their families. However, if we are unable to reach a fair settlement, we fight aggressively in court to protect our clients’ rights. Our family law practice includes:

  • Divorce, legal separation and annulment
  • Spousal support
  • Property division
  • Child support determination and enforcement
  • Visitation rights and parenting plans
  • Domestic violence
  • Child abuse
  • Elder abuse

  • Tax planning
  • Adoptions
  • Restraining orders
  • Paternity issues
  • Complex cases with business entities
  • Valuation and division of pensions
  • Qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) preparation

Trust and Estate Litigation

Although most estate planning provides an orderly means of passing wealth from one generation to the next, sometimes issues arise where the actions of a trustee or executor do not enact the previously prepared estate plans. Our firm has the experience and the expertise to stand up for your interests and to ensure that your loved ones’ wishes are properly executed. Our trust and estate litigation practice includes:

  • Trust Contests
  • Will Contests
  • Financial Elder Abuse
  • Lack of Capacity
  • Undue Influence
  • Trustee Removal
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Business Law

When you are starting a new business, choosing the entity that best suits your needs is one of the most important things to do. We help clients select the entity that is most appropriate for their business, including LLCs, partnerships and corporations. Our attorneys also work with clients to draft and review contracts and offer counsel for daily business operations.
