Trusts, Estates, Wills & Probate

We offer our clients a full spectrum of estate and wealth planning services. Our Trusts, Estates, Wills and Probate Practice Group develops trust and estate plans that reflect the individualized goals and objectives of our clients. Each client's plan reflects personal goals and objectives while minimizing taxes and administrative costs.

Our estate planning practice differs from other firms because, in addition to our estates and trusts expertise, we have the litigation and business resources to compliment our estate planning and administration work. Additionally, one of our experts in this area is also a Certified Public Accountant with extensive finance experience. We customize and tailor our plans to our clients needs and allow our clients to be the decision makers instead of dictating terms and using the same plan for every client.

Our attorneys are always current on new legal developments and trends thereby ensuring that our clients receive the best available planning options in light of current law. The tax and estate planning attorneys of Richa Law Group are highly skilled at navigating the complexities of estate administration, either through probate or during trust administration. We have assisted families of all sizes in the administration of estates of all sizes, and routinely advise clients on the administration of estates in many different jurisdictions. Our clients include executors, trustees, accountants, heirs, professional fiduciaries and beneficiaries who are involved in every aspect of probate and trust administration, including post death tax planning.
