Trusted by clients  for more than twenty-five years, Attorney Flax will listen to you and provide you with experienced, knowledgeable, and cost-effective representation.  

A guardianship or conservatorship becomes necessary when a loved one is incapacitated and no longer able to make decisions regarding medical care or finances on his or her own.

If you have a child in your family with special needs, a special needs trust will allow you to financially support him or her without jeopardizing eligibility for government benefits. You may also control how assets are distributed to minor children. 

A will ensures that whatever personal belongings and assets you have will go to family or the beneficiaries you designate. If you own a business, a will can help ensure a smooth legal transition for the business. 

If you have minor children, a will allows you to choose a legal guardian should you die before your children are of legal adult age. 

Through a will, you can also name what is known as an executor, or the person with whom you trust to have the authority to ensure that your wishes are carried out and that all of your affairs are in order. 

 "Probate Litigation" consists of legal disputes potentially arising out of aging, disability and/or death. This litigation may  include actions regarding guardianships and conservatorships, as well as powers of attorney, living wills, and transfers of real estate.  It also includes legal challenges after the death of a family member.  This may, include cases involving wills, trusts, estates, asset disputes, joint bank accounts, and  gifts. 

Because people tend to put uncomfortable matters off.  It is much better to spend the time to address these issues now and make a plan so that you can avoid having to see a lawyer on an emergency basis  later.
