Helping You Protect Your Elderly Loved Ones

At Gamble Law Firm, PLLC, we devote a significant portion of our law practice toward helping clients develop an estate plan and providing legal direction regarding elder law. Whether you are focused on protecting your surviving loved ones or ensuring that your aged parents are not being taken advantage of, we are the firm for you.

Estate Planning, Administration And Litigation

From start to finish, our firm is prepared to guide clients through every stage of the estate law process.

  • Estate planning: During the estate planning process, clients must work to develop certain documents that will either aid in the distribution of assets after death, or specify a health care or financial proxy who can make decisions should the client lack the mental or physical capacity to do so on their own. These documents can include wills, trusts and powers of attorney.
  • Estate administration: After you pass away, several things must happen very quickly. It is wise for your heirs to select an experienced lawyer who can help with identifying and notifying the remaining heirs, preparing the final tax return and payment of creditors from the estate.
  • Estate litigation: There are often disputes following the death of a loved one. Whether you are contesting the validity of the will, or you are concerned that the executor is not acting in the best interests of the estate, it might be wise to pursue litigation.
