ESTATE PLANNING AND PROBATE


CKS lawyers work directly with clients to help clarify their estate planning goals, both short-term and long-term, and create plans that reach those goals. Our attorneys strive to provide a personal and attentive interaction that allows clients to efficiently transfer assets while minimizing tax liability and administrative expense. Our clients include individuals and families with varying ranges of wealth and complexity. Our estate planning practice regularly involves consultation with clients' accountants and financial planners, and regularly involves:


  • Drafting and review of wills
  • Drafting and review of revocable, irrevocable, and charitable trusts
  • Drafting and review of financial and health care powers of attorney and medical directives/living wills
  • Structuring and drafting of documents for family transfers and gifts
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Medicaid issues
  • Estate and gift taxation consultation and planning


Our lawyers also regularly represent Personal Representatives and Trustees in the administration of estates and trusts. We understand that this process can be emotionally charged and assist in all phases of the administration process, including:


  • Drafting and filing of probate and trust administration documents
  • Assisting accountants in filing of estate tax returns
  • Funding of trusts
  • Distribution of assets
  • Representation of fiduciaries in estate and trust disputes, including negotiation and litigation
