Trusts and Estates

Skagit Law Group works with both fiduciaries and beneficiaries, whether with estates which are being probated under wills or with trusts which are being settled pursuant to a Will or trust instrument.  Our focus and mission in advising a fiduciary is to provide education and advice with respect to the fiduciary’s legal responsibilities, duties, and obligations.    

The estates and trusts that we handle vary in complexity, and we have the expertise to resolve a wide variety of estate matters, including where related to tax issues, family disputes, or unique assets.  We have significant experience in preparing and filing whatever gift and estate tax returns may be required.  We believe in creating plans which allow for a fluid transition from the client to the client’s intended beneficiaries, fully consistent with the client’s wishes.
