Serving Your Probate Needs
Probate law includes much of the most difficult and most necessary work that we all need to do. It covers writing Wills, Trusts, Living Wills, and Powers of Attorney, along with administering the Wills of our deceased love ones. It also covers adoptions, balancing out the grief of death with the promise of the lifelong love of a forever family.
I understand that it's easy to put off making end-of-life decisions. But making plans by writing a Will or a Trust, drafting Powers of Attorney, and enacting your advanced directives is a task to do when you're healthy and able. By preparing for the worst, you set your family on track for the best. Contact me today to see how I can help you create your plan in the comfort of your own home.
If you are reading this because you have recently lost a loved one, my heart goes out to you. Let me share my experience and compassion with you to guide you through this difficult time. When you are ready, please contact my office to schedule a free consultation.
I am also here to help families become forever families through adoption. As an adoptive mom, I know how stressful and difficult the process can be. But as an attorney, I am equipped with the knowledge to help you through each part of the process.
I look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for your interest in my law office.

"Simple Estate Planning", as it's called in the legal world, includes planning for your health AND your assets. A "Simple Estate Planning" package includes a Will, a Durable Power of Attorney, a Living Will, and a Health Care Power of Attorney. At Simmons Law Office we can provide you with one, some, or all of those documents. Contact us today for a consultation to see how we can best meet your needs!
After the death of a family member or loved one, there is typically an estate to administer. Simmons Law Office can help you with everything from simple form completion for small intestate estates to large and complex estate administrations. Let us help you complete the estate administration process with compassion and efficiency.
More complex estate planning is typically accomplished by the creation of a Trust. A Trust is a legal document that, once funded, protects the assets it contains from a traditional probate administration. Trusts can also be used to protect assets from Medicaid, but again they have to be funded. Contact us today to schedule a time to see if a Trust is right for you.
Let us provide you with the care and competence required for the ongoing or final administration of your Trust. These administrations can be lengthy and confusing without legal assistance, especially when they occur simultaneously with an estate administration. Contact us today for either a one-time review of the Trust or ongoing help with the administration.
