Estate Planning, Administration and Litigation

The Towne Law Firm, P.C. services

Often people put off preparing wills and health care proxies, believing there is always more time. Too often, family members are left to deal with unwanted results because of these failures to plan for the inevitable.

The Towne Law Firm, P.C. approaches estate planning and trusts as a collaboration with our clients, providing sound guidance on tax and succession planning to give them the confidence to be full participants in their choices.

Most often, our clients’ needs are satisfied with a simple will and related health directives. We can address virtually any estate planning needs and have experience with the most complicated of probate and administration proceedings. We will help you assess the tax consequences of your desired estate plan and suggest devices which could lessen your estate tax exposure.

Our estate planning experience and expertise includes:

When selecting an attorney to handle the probate of a will or an estate administration, make certain you address in advance how you are going to be billed for this service. Our fee for probate administration matters is always quoted on an hourly basis; we never charge a percentage of the estate assets in determining our fee for services.

Reliable Experience

In the event that estate matters go awry, it’s reassuring to know your attorneys are experienced in estate litigation. Jim Towne has litigated more than a dozen area estate cases, giving the firm a unique perspective on the invariably complex issues associated with estate litigation. In addition, Mr. Towne was successful lead counsel in one of upstate New York’s largest and most contentious estate litigation cases.
