We serve as strong and zealous advocates for our family law clients in the courtroom. We also serve as confidants and counselors to provide guidance to each of our clients throughout the legal process and in delicate situations.

With our extensive knowledge, we can effectively create a tailored estate plan to match our clients’ estate planning goals. Estate planning often involves a delicate balancing of interests of family members. We assist clients in achieving fairness among all those interested in an estate. Identifying who will make important decisions regarding healthcare and finances during incapacity and after death is essential to planning an estate. We can guide clients through this process. Additionally, we help clients in safeguarding assets and creating tax efficient plans to help minimize various taxes to which estates are subject.
Estate & Trust Administration
Our attorneys have the special knowledge and skill required to represent a personal representative in the probate of an estate or a trustee in the administration of a living trust. Estate and trust administration often involve several complex areas of law and we can navigate our clients through this multi-step process. There are often opportunities for estate and income tax savings during the administration of an estate, and we help our clients capitalize on these opportunities.
Life happens and things don’t always go according to plan, which is why hiring a civil litigation attorney is your best plan of action to settle disputes between you and another party.

It was very hard and painful going through the court process. Feeling lost and defeated before the process even began. The peace of mind and confidence I gain after meeting with Amber Rush and the Navigate Law Group can’t be put into words. They mean business and they will fight for you.
I hope that if you’re going through the court process you give yourself a chance to gain the peace of mind I gain with Navigate Law Group.
