Estate Planning and Business Succession

Lead attorney Price S. Williams handles a variety of estate planning matters directed toward achieving a client's desires in the use and distribution of his or her estate in life and at death through planning that considers the future individual recipients, business succession, guardianship, asset protection, tax reduction and insurance. This is accomplished through the utilization of wills, trusts, and other vehicles and entities.

Probate and Estate Administration

We represent estates in probate which is the legal process by which a person's debts are paid and assets distributed upon his or her death. Estate administration includes the probate process, as well as the non-probate transfers of the deceased's assets. Individual state laws control the probate process and state laws and procedures may vary, so it is important to consult a firm with in-depth knowledge in this area of the law to ensure that the deceased's assets are administered and distributed correctly.
