Estate Planning Law

Estates and Trust Planning & Administration

HLG attorneys routinely serve our clients in the areas of estates and trust planning and administration. We handle the preparation of wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, prenuptial agreements, durable powers of attorney, advance directives for health care, and related documents. We advise clients on ways to minimize estate and gift taxes upon the transfer of assets and work with business owners on transition issues. We help our clients to avoid probate if possible and work with executors and administrators in the administration of estates in probate courts throughout Vermont. HLG attorneys also counsel individuals involved in adult and minor guardianship and conservatorship issues and represent clients in trust and probate litigation.
