Handling Estate Planning And Litigation Matters

At the Bellingham office of Britain/Krell PLLC, we know the importance of planning for the future. While many people believe estate planning to be for the wealthy, this is a myth. Anyone can benefit from asset protection.

Our typical estate planning clients range from people with minimal assets who need simple estate planning documents, to high-asset clients in need of complex asset protection services. Regardless of your situation, it is in your best interests to talk with an attorney about your options.

Estate Planning Services

Our lawyers are highly skilled at reviewing documents and situations, and basing their strategies on this analysis as well as the goals and best interests of our clients. We provide comprehensive estate planning and probate services including:

  • Wills (last will and testament)
  • Living wills (advance health care directives)
  • Trusts, including irrevocable trusts, revocable trusts, living trusts and special needs trusts
  • Community property agreements
  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements
  • Guidance through the probate process

We tailor each set of documents to suit each client's unique situation. Our firm also assists clients who have existing estate planning documents that need to be amended. It is a good idea to periodically revisit your plan to ensure it still suits your goals and addresses any new life events.

Beneficiaries or heirs may be arguing over how assets are distributed or other challenges may be made to a will or trust, resulting in litigation. Whether the case progresses to court or is settled through negotiation, our lawyers will aggressively protect your rights and interests at every step.
