A Full Range Of Quality Services For Everyone

We offer effective guidance and services for people with estates of every size. We also provide effective legal representation for people with unique or complicated estate planning needs, such as LGBTQ clients, domestic partners, trustees, personal representatives and executors.

Essential services we offer include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts (including living revocable trusts, special needs trusts and irrevocable trusts)
  • Durable powers of attorney (for personal health care and financial decisions, and
    for the health care of children cared for by others when parents are traveling)
  • Living wills
  • Advance directives and health care directives
  • Guardianships and conservatorships for minor children and disabled adults
  • Estate planning for unmarried couples and domestic partners

We also assist clients who wish to transfer property to someone else after their death. Through the use of beneficiary deeds, testamentary trusts and other estate planning tools, they can avoid the hassle of probate proceedings.

Is your estate plan up to date? The estate plan you made years ago may not reflect your needs today. If you have moved to Kansas or Missouri from another state, have recently gone through a divorce or dissolution, or are planning to move somewhere else — call on us for help with revising your estate plan.
