Estate planning is the process of arranging the transfer of a person's property to others upon his or her death as well as planning for contingencies during one's lifetime such as incapacity.
Asset protection refers to a set of legal techniques designed to protect assets of individuals and business entities from civil money judgments. The goal of asset protection planning is to insulate assets from claims of creditors without concealment or tax evasion.
Probate is the legal process by which a deceased person's debts are paid and assets are distributed. The heirs of the estate are determined either by a will or by the laws of intestacy for the state in which the person died. Intestacy describes a situation in which a person dies without a will. The term probate includes laws concerning the administration of estates.
Estate litigation refers to legal disputes within the probate process such as a will contest or the removal of the executor or administrator of an estate.
Closely related to estate litigation, trust litigation involves disputes related to trusts whether it be a trust contest or a demand for an accounting from a trustee or a claim of breach of fiduciary duty.
Guardianship is the legal process by which one person, called the "guardian", is appointed by the court to take legal responsibility for the care and management of the person, or the estate, or both, of another person, called the "ward", who is considered incapable of administering his or her own affairs.
A contested guardianship arises when either the proposed "ward" contests having a guardian appointed on their behalf or when multiple people apply to be appointed guardian over the same person. Another facet of guardianship litigation involves the removal of one who has been appointed guardian but who has committed some sort of wrong doing in their service as guardian.
Business law encompasses the formation of business entities, the subsequent operations of such businesses, the preparation of contracts and employment agreements as well as assistance with the buying and selling of business entities.
Business litigation includes all variety of disputes confronting small businesses from Partnership disputes and claims of minority shareholder oppression to breach of contract and employee related lawsuits.
