Estate Planning & Probate

Whether starting a family or a business, planning to retire, or leaving a legacy to loved ones, we all want to be prepared for life’s challenges, to protect our property, minimize taxes, and control our destinies. Because every person’s situation is unique and the legal options are so varied, trust and estate planning requires a great deal of creativity.

Doyle & Nelson has provided estate planning and probate services for its clients for over 40 years. Our lawyers are highly experienced at safeguarding clients’ wishes for distributing wealth and ensuring that health care decisions are honored. Tools for doing so include wills, financial durable powers of attorney, advance healthcare directives, and both revocable and irrevocable trusts. More broadly, we often help clients with business succession planning, family-owned camps and vacation real estate, charitable giving, guardianships, conservatorships and adoptions.

When plans are put into action, we can assist in the administration of trusts and probate estates. If disputes arise, we have the litigation skills to address controversies in court.
