Our firm can assist you with:
  • Estate Planning. Proactive planning is essential to protecting your assets, your loved ones, and yourself. A strong estate plan will safeguard your interests while you are alive and after you are gone. Our team can assist you with the drafting, reviewing, and updating of critical estate planning documents, including wills, trusts, advanced healthcare directives, powers of attorney, and more.
  • Trust Administration. Successor trustees assume control of a trust when the original grantor and trustee passes away or becomes unable to communicate. These positions come with a tremendous level of responsibility to fulfilling the responsibilities associated with the trust. We can serve as your successor trustee and effectively fulfill all related obligations.
  • Probate. We can assist both executors and administrators through the complex and sometimes protracted process of settling a loved one’s estate. This can include validating the will, notifying beneficiaries and creditors, inventorying assets, settling debts, and distributing property.
  • Estate Disputes. Many estate disputes involving objecting to the authenticity of a will. We can assist you with bringing formal objections and even litigation in a number of areas, including wills and trusts, conservatorships and guardianships, and fiduciary relationships. Our team can also assist you with delicate situations involving suspected elder abuse.
  • Medicaid Planning. Long-term care for elderly individuals can be prohibitively expensive for many Iowans. Medicaid benefits can often cover some or all of these expenses, but qualifying and maintaining eligibility can be extremely difficult. Our team can work with your family to develop a long-term plan for your loved one’s care and guide you through any application processes.
  • VA Pension Planning. As VA-accredited attorneys, we represent veterans and the surviving spouses of veterans to ensure they are receiving the maximum award amount for their pension. Our team can work with you to determine what you may be entitled to receive.
