Estate Planning and Probate

Planning is critical to the proper management of your assets during your lifetime and to their efficient management and transfer after your death.  The planning process requires thoughtful creativity to help you envision your planning goals, and to create and execute legal documents necessary to the successful implementation of your estate and business plans.  Communication between the attorney and client is vital to successful business and estate planning.  At Clark Quinn, you can expect to work closely with an attorney who will make the effort to know and understand all the pertinent facts and circumstances relative to your personal estate and business planning needs.  Because the process may involve managing and planning for real estate, business holdings and other varied property interests, the estate planning, trust and probate attorneys at Clark Quinn may call upon the diverse practice area experience of other Clark Quinn attorneys to ensure that our clients receive appropriate, comprehensive legal services.  We advise and represent individuals, families and closely held family businesses in the following areas:
