Attorney Sweeney has practiced in the Probate area for more than 30 years. During this time he has come to understand that a good estate plan can avoid litigation amongst family members upon the death of the Patriarch or Matriarch of the family. Successor business planning is important for a family business, just as proper legal documents like powers of attorney, and Wills and Trusts are an important part of the successor (estate) planning. Estate planning for estates in excess of $5,046,000 (as of 2016) is essential, but even those with estates under that size benefit from estate planning by avoiding probate and exposure to creditor claims. Our firm offers estate planning services.
