Estate Planning

Wills and trusts are the primary means by which individuals leave their possessions and wealth to family members, close friends and charities. These instruments require careful thought and planning to ensure that they are configured to your specific circumstances and wishes.

Probate is the process by which the estate of a decedent is administered by resolving all claims and distributing the estate according to a will, trust or statute. Our attorneys will guide you through the process and help ensure that the estate is properly distributed while taking care of the paperwork and court appearances so you do not have to.

BVH has experience drafting and updating wills and powers of attorneys and drafting a wide variety of trusts to accomplish personal objectives. These objectives may include avoiding probate, planning business succession, protecting personal assets and providing for family members with special needs.
