Wills, Trusts, & Estates


Estate planning is an important step. Establishing a comprehensive estate plan can help you and your family avoid the stress of an uncertain future. Your estate should be in your control, but we understand that talking about these matters can be overwhelming. Whether you live a modest life or you are a person of means, preparing your possessions for after you pass is something to consider. The goal of a will is to provide directions for your estate, but it also helps your family focus on healing after you are gone.


Establishing a comprehensive estate plan is important. Declaring your wishes for your estate is something everyone should consider, no matter their means. After you execute a will, it may be in your family’s best interests to consider the use of a trust.

Estate Administration

When a person passes, the estate administration process begins. If they have passed with testamentary documents like wills and trusts, they have set up a structure of administrators to help follow their directions. If they did not, the state will get involved in the process.

Estate Litigation

When a person passes, legal issues can easily arise. Unfortunately, wills, trusts, and other testamentary documents can be executed improperly, leading to court cases based on the validity of the documents. There are many reasons to contest a testamentary document. Undue influence from a third party, forgery, and illegal alterations are just some of the many reasons a beneficiary may need to take legal action.


One of the challenges of being named the executor of one’s estate is completing the probate process. Probate is the way that an estate is closed upon the death of the decedent. Of course, this process is often very emotional, so it is essential to have quality legal guidance every step of the way.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
