I also represent various lenders with respect to both mortgage and construction financing on commercial, industrial, single family and multi-residential real estate properties.

WILLS, ESTATES, POWERS OF ATTORNEY and ESTATE PLANNING

Estates have formed part of my practice for many years; I handle both very basic estates and more complicated ones, and am well-versed in an assortment of complex estate planning methods and their effective implementation.

My practice involves the preparation of both Wills and Powers of Attorney, and I pride myself on understanding my clients’ needs and objectives. I meet with clients before preparing a Will to determine what they want to accomplish with their estate planning, and also take an ongoing interest in them, by sending out reminders to ensure that they keep their Wills and Powers of Attorney current.

  • Negotiation and preparation of Separation Agreements; and
  • Preparation of uncontested Divorce Applications.
