Estate Planning & Litigation


Having a thoughtful mindset drives us to be more observant, innovative, and forward-looking. As experienced estate lawyers, we are uniquely qualified to help our clients make the best decisions for themselves, their businesses, and their families. Our estate litigators are also experienced in assisting clients when grappling with issues such as will challenges and appointments of estate trustees. Our litigators acted in the much-discussed case of Leibel v. Leibel, which addressed the limitation period for a will challenge. In terms of estate planning, the old adage about an ounce of prevention being a pound of cure certainly applies. Whether buying or selling a business or a piece of land, planning for retirement or making provision for loved ones, we work with you to avoid problems down the road. It all starts with an informed strategy and a meticulous approach. We listen to client concerns and prepare estate plans that help them to reach their goals. We apply this same strategy to litigation, ensuring that client’s estate litigation matters are handled with the care and concern they deserve.
