Protecting Your Legacy And Loved Ones
Estate planning encompasses so much more than just creating a will. It can affect every stage of our lives, from new parents creating wills and choosing guardians for their children to older adults ensuring that their estates will pass to their heirs and beneficiaries. Additionally, it includes long-term care planning to help seniors protect their estates as much as possible if one or both spouses need long-term care services.
At Riddell Law, PLLC, we take our jobs as estate planning and elder law attorneys seriously. With over 20 years’ experience, we understand that the documents we put in place today will affect you and your family for years. Our caring, experienced lawyers are here to advise you on some of the most important decisions you may make during your lifetime. You can rely on our comprehensive knowledge of New Hampshire law regarding estate planning, trusts, probate, special needs trusts, guardianships and elder law. We also assist business owners and professionals with business succession planning.
Our Practice Areas
Let us provide you with some peace of mind that your family will be taken care of if you become incapacitated or die, and your estate will pass to those you want to benefit.
We are here to help you navigate the many issues involved with planning for how to pay for long-term care and protect your assets for your spouse and family to the extent possible.
Probate And Trusts
Losing someone close is always difficult, even without the stress of dealing with legal matters or the courts. Let us take on that strain, leaving you to handle other matters.
Special Needs Trusts
Providing for a child with disabilities when you are no longer able to is a matter of careful planning. We will help you craft the legal instruments and other means to do so.
Even an uncontested guardianship can be emotionally challenging. Whether for a minor or for a vulnerable adult, let our trusted experience guide your family through that process.
