Making the most of your financial assets.
Making the decision to appoint an estate administrator is one of the best ways to regulate your assets even after you pass on. Our firm has found that estate administration is an area in which legal counsel is especially beneficial. Although similar to probate administration, there are some key differences involved in estate administration. The parts of an estate that do not go through probate, such as a trust, are left to the estate administrator. When choosing your administrator, it is important to select someone you can trust implicitly. Family members or attorneys are often appointed for this duty.

Civil litigation is a general term to describe a formalized dispute between opposing parties. Usually, the parties have hired lawyers to protect and advance their respective legal rights in anticipation of resolving the dispute at trial, arbitration, or some other forum, although most disputes settle before trial or even prior to initiating a lawsuit. If you are in a situation where you need to sue someone, are being sued, have questions about alternative dispute resolution, need to collect on a judgment or just need guidance about an escalating dispute, call for an initial consultation.
