Our Services

We offer a full array of estate planning services, including these:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Guardianships
  • Powers of attorney, including medical powers of attorney and durable powers of attorney
  • Family limited partnerships
  • Advance health care directives
  • Financial planning
  • Business succession planning

We do more than simply prepare legal documents for clients. Our attorneys also educate clients about their options and talk about the details of their estate plans. We conduct a careful review of all assets. We discuss tax consequences in the context of estate planning and help clients determine how assets should be titled to minimize tax liability. Our goal is to work carefully with clients to accomplish their goals for transferring property — either before or after death.

Additional Services

Our law firm also assists clients with probate matters. We represent executors in all matters related to the probating of an estate. Some of our clients have been executors of West Virginia estates but live elsewhere. Clients such as these have been able to wind up their work with little or no travel — our attorneys can take care of almost every issue.
