Estate Planning and Trusts
At McDonald & Mannion, we understand that every family is different and has unique goals. We work closely with each of our clients to develop and implement the best combination of a will, trusts, and other estate planning documents (such as powers of attorney and advance health care directives) that will minimize tax liability and ensure their estate is distributed according to their wishes.
Probate and Trust Administration
We help the executors of wills fulfill legal duties such as filing petitions, handling the sale of both real and personal property, coordinating tax matters with accountants, and obtaining court order for distribution.
We assist trustees with the administration process, including working with accountants to provide assistance with income and estate tax matters. Additionally, we advise and counsel beneficiaries as to their rights and responsibilities under the trust.
If you are interested in resolving your dispute through mediation, or if you need assistance with an estate planning, probate or trust administration matter, it is critical that you hire an attorney who has the necessary experience and focus to successfully resolve your case.
