Knowledgeable Guidance in the Decision-Making Process
There are many decisions we make each day of our lives. Our lawyers can help you choose who will help you make your decisions as you age or if you become disabled. We will assist you with preparing medical and financial powers of attorney, living wills, and health care directives. For people who need it, we can assist in setting up a conservatorship or guardianship.
Comprehensive Estate Planning to Protect Your Legacy
Death and taxes are the two absolutes in life. Proper estate planning is the way that you can plan for both. Just a few of the ways we can help include creating Trusts to protect your assets from estate taxes, managing inheritances for children, preserving public benefits eligibility for disabled children or adults, and appointing guardians for minor or incapacitated children. The attorneys at Jean Galloway Ball, PLC, will create a plan with a Will or a living Trust that meets your individual needs. We can also provide the guidance that your Executor or Trustee will need in carrying out your estate plan.
Experienced Representation in the Litigation of Disputes
Sometimes the trust you have placed in a person has been violated, and you need someone to stand up for you. Our litigation practice deals with rectifying financial exploitation of seniors and disabled adults; the impeachment, reformation, and modification of Wills and Trusts; fiduciary litigation; and contested and uncontested guardianships.
