Areas of Practice

Wills and Probate Lawyers

Martin & Drought’s estate planning attorneys have many years of experience in preparing wills and related documents (such as personal directives) for clients of diverse means, backgrounds and personal circumstances. End-of-life matters can be complex and require much more than a "simple will." We will discuss the full range of alternatives so that your or your loved one’s wishes are carefully documented and properly carried out.

Our attorneys can also assist you with the administration of an estate of any size or complexity. We work to resolve probate administration issues as quickly as possible and preserve the estate assets for the heirs and beneficiaries.
