Our attorneys’ 38 years of combined experience give us the skills to respond to complex or unique issues that may arise in your case. Our team treats you and your family with respect and compassion throughout the estate administration process.
Drafting estate planning instruments
Our estate planning lawyers in Plymouth help you preserve your assets and plan for your family’s future. We analyze your financial situation and discuss your goals to develop effective strategies for meeting your objectives. Your estate plan might include:
- Last wills and testaments
- Living and testamentary trusts
- Special needs trusts for recipients of personal injury awards
- Appointment of guardianship for minor children
- Living wills and advance care directives
- Powers of attorney
You should revise your estate plan if your financial or family situation has changed. For example, you may consider amending or replacing your will after divorce or upon receiving a substantial personal injury judgment.
Probating an estate
As the personal representative of your loved one’s estate, you are tasked with collecting assets, paying debts and distributing property to beneficiaries. These important duties can feel overwhelming at a time when you are mourning the loss of your loved one. Our Plymouth estate planning lawyers tailor our services to give you as much assistance as you need efficiently to administer the estate.
Representing vulnerable clients in probate disputes
Because of his knowledge and dedication to children’s issues, our Taunton estate planning lawyer John E. Studley Jr. has been appointed by the courts as a guardian ad litem to represent the best interests of minors in estates settlement cases. John has also been appointed by the courts to represent seniors in probate and estate matters. He recently won a multimillion dollar settlement for an elderly widow who was the victim of undue influence and wrongful conversion.
