ESTATE PLANNING, Trust & Probate Litigation, PROBATE administration, and TRUST ADMINISTRATION
Elizabeth A. Tresp, Attorney at Law, understands first hand the importance of having your family's legal affairs in order, having lost her own father unexpectedly in 2011. As a mother, Elizabeth knows that it is never too early to plan for the future. As she does for her own family, Elizabeth will help you protect your loved ones and create a lasting legacy.
Knowing that you have planned for your family's long-term well-being and financial security can assure you that your lifetime of hard work is safe. Elizabeth undergoes a comprehensive analysis of your estate and determines the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, nominating guardians for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes, and protecting your loved ones.
Representing beneficiaries, trustees, charitable organizations, and other parties with interests in decedent’s estates and trust assets, we handle every aspect of probate estate and trust litigation.
We also advise trustees, executors and other fiduciaries on how to discharge their duties in order to minimize personal liability exposure and reduce the potential for conflicts with beneficiaries and other parties.
We work with you to administer the decedent’s estate, identify and distribute assets to the beneficiaries, and provide services for other issues that may require the attention of a probate court, including Lost Wills, Will Contests, Removal of Executors, and a variety of other Probate Litigation matters.
