Estate Planning, Wills, and Trusts
Preparing a proper estate plan requires more than just downloading a form and filling in the blanks. The best estate plans are prepared with the assistance of an attorney who will take the time to listen to you and understand your needs and the needs of your family. A good estate plan must be tailored to meet your individual and family circumstances.
This process does not have to be overly complex or expensive. But it does take some time and effort to do it right.
A good attorney will help you understand how a living trust, will, power of attorney, advance health care directive, and other estate planning tools can work together to protect your interests. We work personally with our clients to create customized estate planning documents, and help ensure that our clients understand how to implement their estate plan.
Facing criminal prosecution in Utah can be daunting. And the consequences of a conviction can be devastating. If you have been charged with a crime, the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney can be vital to achieving a positive outcome in your case. With years of criminal defense experience ranging from murder to white collar crime, and from aggravated felonies to minor misdemeanors, we work hard to ensure that our clients’ rights are protected.
Family law involves more than just divorce. A family law attorney can assist in guiding you through the adoption process, obtaining guardianship appointment, and addressing parent time disputes, custody, child support, and other legal issues that can significantly affect you and your family. If you are contemplating a divorce, having a good family law attorney on your side is critical. Whether you are hoping for an amicable mediated resolution, or are anticipated a hard fight, having the advice and assistance of an attorney is critical.
