Estate Planning

We help you protect and pass your wealth from one generation to the next, with wills, trusts, and probate

North City Law helps you understand and assert your rights to protect and pass your wealth. We prepare wills that are iron-clad to will contests. We prepare trusts that serve your needs at a reasonable cost. And when we need to probate your loved one's will, we ensure that all formalities are followed and the law satisfied.

North City Law also helps with estate disputes, governed in Washington law under the Trust and Estate Dispute Resolution Act (TEDRA). We take the most assertive position allowed under the law, seeking to bring the family together with a fair disposition of assets as originally intended by the testator or trustor. We explain the process the whole way, so you understand the probabilities of success and the likely result.
