Family Law, Estate Planning & Probate
Legist lawyers have experience in all areas of family law, including: divorce proceedings and child custody, preparing premarital/marital property agreements; post-divorce enforcement or modification of child support and custody issues. From the outset of the representation, we work closely with each client to develop a cost-effective strategy for the protection of assets and to achieve a fair and just outcome to what is always a personal, emotional and all-important type of dispute.
We guide clients through the preparation of wills, durable medical powers of attorney and directives to physicians (living wills), powers of attorney and representation in probate and guardianship proceedings. We also handle all types of probate matters—from litigation over multimillion dollar estates to simply assisting with the state’s probate requirements when your loved one has passed.
