About Peter

Learn Peter’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    We take pride in the fact that when you retain our services to assist you in creating a trust that specifically meets you needs, we go the extra mileto make sure we assist you in the transfer of appropriate assets into your trust. This "funding" process, when properly implemented, can give you "peace of mind"that your loved ones can avoid probating your estate and incurring unnecessary expenses.

  2. Wills and living wills
    Power of Attorney for Property and Power of Attorney for Health Care forms are relatively inexpensive documents every person should have in place to avoid "living probate." If a person becomes incapacitated due to accident or illness the aforementioned forms allows love ones to care for the incapacitated person without the need to go to court and have a guardian appointed.

  3. Business

  4. Real estate
    We have over 40 years of experience in the Residential Real Estate area of law. The attorneys and our para-legal work with our clients to insure a smooth process from the time of signing the contract to closing.

I have spent 42 years advising clients on their estate planning matters. This includes drafting wills trusts, power of attorney forms for health care and for financial matters. Once completed, the clients have expressed having "peace of mind" knowing they have planned for the proper disposition of their estate by avoiding probate and eliminating taxes, where possible.

As a result of many years of experience I am able to explain the complicated legal system in easy to understand lay-man's language.
