At Dorsch Law, we take pride in providing the personal service you need when it comes to dealing with the death of a loved one and take pride in being both accessible and responsive to our clients. If an Estate Plan has been put into place, we can help make this process easier. When someone dies without completing an Estate Plan, however, this process can become even more difficult than it already is for surviving heirs.

What Our Clients Have Said

Protecting your family, preserving your assets, and expanding your business

At the Dorsch Law Firm, we have extensive experience in helping you build your business and in planning for the care of your loved ones should you not be around to provide for them. Selecting a lawyer can be a difficult and confusing task, however, our commitment to personal service, prompt client communication, and thorough representation has allowed us to develop client relationships that span many years.

We understand estate planning can be a confusing, overwhelming, and intimidating process.

If no will or Estate Plan has been established at time of death, the courts take over. The court will appoint an administrator to manage the affairs of the deceased person so that the individual’s assets can be distributed among the heirs. Unfortunately, this process can be lengthy and subject to taxes that can be quite costly.

Even if there was a will, the probate process may still be required, such as when the will is being contested or has not been updated appropriately, especially as the testator’s health begins to fail and may be called into question, or if the designated trustee is accused of mismanaging the will or trust in such a way that unfair distribution of assets results.

The Dorsch Law Firm "Cap Fee"

Once a client makes a decision to secure a Trust - and the various ancillary documents - they may call me as much as they feel is necessary to fully discuss any potential issue or concern they may have with their Estate Plan, and I will not turn around and bill them for my time to resolve their question(s). In other words, the fee I charge clients to develop a Trust is a “cap fee.” I want clients to be totally open and comfortable with every aspect of the Estate Planning process.
