Estate Planning, Elder Law
and Special Needs

Russell, English, Scoma & Beneke has a long tradition of providing thoughtful, common sense solutions for the estate, wealth and succession planning needs of its clients. Our attorneys provide representation to clients facing nursing home stays and other elder law issues. Our attorneys are experienced in the use of revocable trusts for probate avoidance, irrevocable trusts for asset protection, and special needs trusts to preserve public benefits for disabled children and adults. If probate proceedings are required, or desirable, our attorneys have an extraordinary depth of experience in representing estates in a timely and cost effective manner. We assist our clients with the preparation of wills, advanced directives and powers of attorney, and have experience in guardianship proceedings when families and individuals are faced with the need to obtain a court appointed guardian. We strive to provide compassionate, ethical and responsive professional services for all of our clients, whether their estate is small or large, or whether they are sophisticated entrepreneurs or persons who suffer from a physical or mental disability
