Estate Planning

Planning for your financial future is vital to your family's security. We offer a variety of estate planning services including wills, revocable living trusts, powers of attorney and living wills. We will draft the documents necessary to achieve your goals.  We also provide representation in probate and trust administration. 

Estate Administration

Probate Administration

Our office assists in transferring your personal property and real estate and we represent your interests in dealing with creditors and negotiating creditor claims after death.  This may involve estate administration through the probate process or providing for efficient distribution of assets when probate is not required.

Trust Administration

The establishment of a revocable living trust can alleviate the need for the probate process, saving your family time and expense. Trust administration is usually carried out without court supervision keeping your personal matters out of the public domain. We can assist in the efficient administration of your revocable trust.

Corporate & Business Services

Business transactions can be complex.  Corporation and limited liability formation, preparation and negotiation of purchase and sale agreements, franchise agreements, shareholder agreements, operating agreements and employment agreements all bear their own obstacles.  Every business has its own objectives that may carry different liability, tax, and succession implications based on the business structure. 

We spend the time needed to understand the short and long-term goals of your business in order to efficiently draft the documents required for your business needs.  With over 38 years of legal experience, Mr. Lyon can effectively counsel and guide you through your business issues.
