About My Firm
At my office, I am committed to making all my clients feel welcome and heard. My name is Beth Sullivan-Summers, and for over three decades, I have been helping clients make plans for their twilight years. In addition to my experience as an attorney, I am a former social worker who has helped families through difficult personal matters, so I understand how to navigate painful family disputes and how to work toward a resolution for my clients. I believe in forming a personal connection with my clients, as that is the best way to understand their needs and form a strategy to accomplish their goals.
Making your end-of-life plans is an emotionally difficult and stressful process. It is even more difficult for families who have lost a loved one and are in the probate process, where grief can turn to anger and bitter fights can emerge. I use my experience as a social worker and an attorney to bring calm to my clients and provide a sense of stability for the family.
What I Do
Estate planning encompasses a variety of legal steps that you can take to protect, control or distribute your assets. As an experienced probate lawyer, I can assist you with any of the following:
- Estate administration, which includes asset management and distribution
- Funeral planning declaration wherein you establish your burial preferences
- Guardianship measures, including guardianship administration and standby guardianship declarations
- Last will and testament documents
- Durable power of attorney
- Trusts of all varieties, including special needs, revocable and irrevocable arrangements
- Advanced directive naming health care representative
Not sure which measures you should consider? I will evaluate your current situation, concerns and existing estate plan to decide on your next best step.
