Estate planning
I can advise you on the best approach to your estate planning. I thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts if they would be beneficial to your estate.

Probate
I apply my extensive knowledge about Indiana probate court to guide you through the complex process of probating a will. I assist executors in all steps of the process, including:

  • Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
  • Filing the will with the probate court in Indiana
  • Closing and opening bank accounts
  • Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
  • Valuating the estate
  • Managing and liquidating assets as appropriate
  • Paying taxes and other debts
  • Locating beneficiaries
  • Hiring professionals and experts when necessary
Probate disputes
When disputes occur between beneficiaries, I successfully represent your interests. As an experienced Indiana attorney, I have the extensive knowledge to challenge invalid wills or to defend valid wills against the improper assertions of dissatisfied beneficiaries. I can negotiate between beneficiaries to preserve relationships or fastidiously pursue your rights in court when necessary.
