Estate Planning Services

Estate planning can be a really complex process. Although it may seem stressful at times working through such a convoluted and sometimes difficult process, you can rest easy knowing that our law firm is here to help. We are knowledgeable and provide full consultation services on a variety of estate planning instruments including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, irrevocable life insurance trusts, and much more.

One of the most important parts of the estate planning process is establishing your objectives and creating a plan to get you there. Without a plan, the process will be a lot more time-consuming and likely won’t yield the results that you’re looking for.

Wills and Probate

Forming a will is one of the most important things you can do before you die. Unfortunately, a will isn’t something that you can just sit down and scribble out really quickly, it requires days of forethought and planning. And it’s also a very important part of the estate planning process. Here at the Law Office of James D. Fife, we help with the entire process from the initial creation of the will to probate, or the act of proving a will.

Guardianship Arrangements

In the event of your passing, do you know who will watch over your children? Fortunately, there are many laws in place to help ensure a minor child’s new guardian is the right person to be raising your child. Guardianship arrangement is important for securing the future of your children so that you’ll never have to worry.

Business Planning

Our law office is happy to provide legal services for startups, small businesses, and all sizes of business. We help with the initial processes of starting a business like choosing a business entity and determining the legality of your practices as well as long-term legal services like business planning.
