Minnesota Estate Planning Attorney
Guardianship & Conservatorship Lawyer
Probate Administration • Civil Appeals
If you are like most people, then one of your primary goals is to protect your family, your friends, and your possessions. My goal is to help.
Lawyers who choose to help individuals do so in many different ways. I choose to help people in three main ways: to protect vulnerable adults and children who cannot protect themselves, to protect the assets of Minnesota families and individuals, and to help families carry on after the death of a loved one by relieving the burden of administering the estate of the deceased.
Estate Planning: Wills and Trusts
My estate planning practice is all-inclusive. I prepare everything from simple wills and powers of attorney to complex trusts and advanced instruments. I focus on developing and creating plans for persons with disabilities, but I am not exclusive to these types of clients. I serve people of all ages and all walks of life.
Guardianship • Conservatorship
My main area of focus in this field is to help put guardians and conservators in place for people who need them, and to assist guardians and conservators in the administration of their duties.
I represent petitioners (persons petitioning to appoint a guardian/conservator), respondents (the proposed ward or protected person), guardians, and conservators. I also represent interested persons, both in disputing appointment or simply to observe the proceedings (to make sure interests are protected).
Probate is the process whereby a court validates a will. Today, probate has come to mean administering the estate and distributing the assets, whether there is or is not a valid will.
I represent petitioners and applicants (whomever starts the probate process), personal representatives (the person appointed to manage the estate), and any other persons interested in the proceedings.
I take on a limited number of civil appeals but in a wide range of matters. If you have lost your case and need to appeal, or you have won and need to defend an appeal, contact me.
I am located in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, but I am willing to represent clients throughout much of Minnesota.
I have a new practice site up and running at Roseville, Minnesota, divorce lawyer.
Service Areas: I represent clients throughout Minnesota, including Hennepin County, Ramsey County, Dakota County, Scott County, Washington County, Anoka county, Waseca County, Olmsted County, Stearns County, Sherburne County, and Blue Earth County, just to name a few.
