"Preparing a strategy for your future"

Thinking about the future can often be confusing and disconcerting, especially when making decisions that affect your loved ones, your assets, your charitable causes, and — don’t forget — you. Niles Barton understands the difficult personal and confidential aspects of developing an estate plan that fulfills your wishes. Our estates and trusts attorneys evaluate all areas of your estate to draft a strategic plan that addresses the legal and tax implications for you.
