Estate planning is best defined as a comprehensive “set of instructions” that allows clients to maintain control during their lifetime; provide for their care during disability; and to protect their beneficiaries after passing. Knudsen, Burbridge & Manchur offers a full range of trust and estate planning services that enable our clients to pass assets in the most appropriate and tax-effective manner.
Business Law & Commercial Litigation
Our expertise spans a wide range of business law, including business formation, choice of entity, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, corporate governance, and business and individual tax planning. Our attorneys have also served as class litigation counsel in numerous federal and state courts and offer substantial litigation experience in complex matters.
Special Needs Planning
Special needs planning is best defined as the creation of a comprehensive “set of instructions”. If you, as the primary caregiver, should pass away or become ill, you will want to have a detailed set of instructions in place for those individuals who will care for your child.
Trust & Estate Litigation
The passing of a loved one can often bring to light tension and conflict between family members and heirs. Even the most carefully drafted estate plans can be open to interpretation and discord. Our attorneys have years of experience representing clients in probate and estate litigation matters.
Probate & Estate Administration
Following the death of a loved one, families can count on our attorneys to ensure that a person’s wishes are carried out and that all legal requirements are met. Trust administration is the processes through which trust assets are transferred or managed after the Trustmaker’s death.
Elder law is an aspect of estate planning, focusing primarily on the needs of families and individuals as they age. As our population ages, more and more of us confront elder law-related issues, whether for ourselves or our parents.
