Estate Planning, Trusts and Probate

Smith Duggan Buell & Rufo’s estate planning practice includes wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care proxies, and living wills. We recognize the importance of estate planning in the lives of individuals and families, and we work closely with our clients to ensure that their estate plan meets their wishes. Moreover, we take the time to explain the estate plan so that our clients understand what are often rather technical documents. When the time comes to administer an estate in the Probate Court, we strive to be efficient while being sensitive to the needs of the family.

The Firm has the capability to handle a wide variety of probate litigation matters, such as will contests, complaints in equity to challenge a trust, contested guardianships, petitions for an accounting, and petitions to partition real estate.
