At Kellogg & Palzer, P.C., we strive to provide our clients with all the necessary information the client needs to make an informed decision. Please visit the following pages to learn more about our areas of practice, and to learn more about the area of law that applies to your situation. This general information can not take the place of an in person consultation with an attorney, but it can serve to inform you of the various "talking points" that we will need to cover in meeting your legal needs.
Estate Planning (Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney)
Preparing your Estate Plan can be the greatest gift to your family. Losing a family member is a very stressful and confusing time for anyone, but that stress can be eased by having your estate in order. At Kellogg & Palzer, P.C., we work closely with our clients so that the Will is a legal reflection of the client's wishes and intentions, and not just a form with your name plugged in.
Probate (Estate Administration)
The process of administering a will through probate involves several key steps:
- Opening the Estate (Admitting the will to probate)
- Appointing a Personal Representative
- Gathering of Assets-Preparation of the Inventory
- Notifying and paying creditors
- Determining and paying Inheritance, Estate and Income taxes
- Distribution of assets and Closing the Estate
Small Business Planning (Corporations, Partnerships, LLC)
Forming your business into a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) is one of the best ways to protect your personal assets from liabilities created by your business. Sometimes insurance is not enough to protect your personal assets.
Personal Injury (Motor Vehicle Accidents, Slip and Falls, Wrongful Death)
You have suffered a loss and you need assistance. Once you have placed your claim in our hands, we will strive to get a fair and successful result for you.
Elder law is a vast area of the law and can affect many areas of elder life. At Kellogg & Palzer, P.C., we represent families and individuals in all aspects of elder law, estate planning and long-term care planning.
