Posted on December 13th, 2016

Silverman Law Office, PLLC excels in providing our clients in Billings, Montana with expert counsel across a wide array of business matters. We also help individuals with their estate planning needs and tax issues. Our goal as attorneys is to protect your interests while preventing unnecessary expenditures and ensuring your compliance with both state and federal laws. We can help you in the following areas:

Wills, Trusts, and Probate

Our Billings tax lawyers will help you draft an estate plan that will protect your assets, keep your privacy, and ensure that your assets make it to your heirs immediately upon your passing with the help of living trusts. If your property passes through your will, all of this will be managed by a probate judge who will contact your creditors first. It will also be a matter of public record. Our attorneys can help you set up a trust that will disperse your assets directly to your heirs. We can also help with the following:

  • Amending and administering existing trusts
  • Appointing guardianships for any minors in your care
  • Creating trusts for family members with disabilities
  • Stress-testing your will for potential challenges in court

  • Litigating probate disputes
  • Admitting your will to probate court in Billings
  • Filing estate tax returns
  • Settling your estate and ensuring your assets make it to your beneficiaries

Our attorneys believe that an estate plan is not something you draft once and then set aside. Estate plans are built over the course of one’s life and therefore need to be constantly amended. The Billings, Montana estate planning attorneys at Silverman Law Office, PLLC can help you manage your estate plan.
