Our dedicated team can work closely with you to develop a personalized plan that aligns with your goals.

  • Estate Planning. At Pearson Bollman Law, our mission is to empower Iowans to protect their future and the well-being of their loved ones through proactive and effective planning strategies. We firmly believe in the importance of initiating estate planning early, as its benefits extend even to those who are young. Our team is dedicated to offering comprehensive support in the development, review, and refinement of various estate planning tools. These include wills, trusts, powers of attorney, conservatorships, guardianships, advanced healthcare directives, and more, ensuring a tailored approach to meet your unique needs.
  • Trust Administration. Trusts are important tools for protecting wealth against probate and taxation, yet they demand careful management and oversight. While many individuals choose to manage their own trusts during their lifetime, it becomes necessary to designate a successor trustee in the event of incapacitation or death. Our firm can alleviate the complexities and uncertainties involved in selecting a suitable successor trustee. We are committed to facilitating the effective administration of your trust and the timely disbursement of its assets in alignment with your directives.

Simplify the Probate Process in West Des Moines

  • Every estate must undergo some form of probate. However, the process is renowned for causing delays and escalating costs, which can significantly deplete a well-managed estate. Our team can help you proactively reduce the effects of probate on your assets through strategic estate planning and assist in resolving any disputes that arise during the process. If you've been named as an executor or administrator of a loved one's estate, you'll face the challenging tasks of valuing their assets, notifying relevant parties, settling debts, and distributing assets. Our team possesses a deep understanding of Iowa's probate system and can guide you in fulfilling your duties as a personal representative efficiently and accurately.

 

Confidently Resolve Estate Disputes

  • Conflicts frequently arise during the probate process, particularly when it involves a loved one's estate. Such disputes often challenge the validity of a will, halting the probate process and any asset distribution until these issues are resolved. Our team of estate planning attorneys in West Des Moines can guide you through probate disputes related to wills. We also offer support for conflicts concerning trust management, conservatorships, guardianships, fiduciary duty breaches, and elder abuse.

Strategies for Medicaid Planning and Elder Law in West Des Moines

  • Long-term care in Iowa can be expensive, putting seniors in a difficult position as they consider nursing homes or assisted living options. Many fear that they will have to liquidate their hard-earned retirement savings and nest eggs to afford care in their later years, which could prevent their loved ones from inheriting any wealth. Our team recognizes these challenges our clients face and offers solutions to help you navigate this situation by finding alternative methods to manage the costs of long-term care. This involves exploring Medicaid eligibility, a government benefits program that can cover many of the expenses associated with long-term care.
