A Sophisticated Solo Practitioner Providing Cost-Effective Solutions
I’ve been doing this for a long time. I can’t say that I’ll never make a mistake, but I will say that I know how to fix most of the ones I run into. Other lawyers call me when Probate and Real Estate are mixed together. I am certified as a Real Estate Specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association. That exam was tougher than the Bar Exam, by quite a bit.
I work in the areas of probate, real estate, trusts, and estate planning. I do my best to offer competent services and good value for your money.
Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Health Care Directives are like a three-legged milking stool. If you’ve ever milked a cow, you know how you need to be able to lean to the left or right, or back out of the way. There are other ways to do the job, and there are a variety of ways to avoid probate, including the appropriate use of title transfers, trusts, and beneficiary designations. But if you’re not careful, the bucket tips over.
The first question is not necessarily what you’ve already heard of. It’s “What are we trying to do, and what tools should we use to get you there?” So call or e-mail me, and we’ll figure out what to do.
