Estate Planning & Probate
Planning For Your Future
Estate Planning Attorneys in Omaha and Plattsmouth, Nebraska
It is never too early to start planning for the future. People often think that they don't need a will until they get closer to retirement, but the reality is that even young people need wills. Especially individuals that have young children at home. Creating a will that expresses your wishes about who will care for your children and your end-of-life decisions makes it easier for your loved ones after you are gone.

Probate Services and Litigation
We also assist with probating a will, or, when someone dies without a will, handling an intestate administration. We help you get appointed as a personal representative and draft the documents that allow you to handle the assets and distribution of the estate.
In addition to assisting with the probate process, we handle related probate and trust litigation. We represent clients in will contests, capacity challenges and other matters where there is a question of improper conduct. If there is a question of how a trust was administered or about the conduct of a trustee, we will bring a suit on behalf of the trust beneficiaries.
