Estate Planning Attorneys Mindful Of Details

Our knowledgeable attorneys, John Robshaw and Jeffrey Voelkl, have more than 65 years of combined experience in the intertwined disciplines of estate planning, estate administration and probate litigation. Because we regularly deal with the aftermath of poor estate planning, we draft estate plans the right way to anticipate those issues. We think of everything to give our clients peace of mind and to spare their loved ones from similar conflicts.
