Estate Planning & Probate

The use of trusts in estate and business planning has become increasingly popular. While not for every individual, revocable trusts (also known as living trusts) can play an important role in estate, business, and tax planning. A revocable trust can assist in maintaining a closely-held business within a family without the publicity of probate, and be a vehicle for implementing various estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer tax strategies.

Dove & Dove can prepare you an estate planning strategy to reach your individual goals.

Irrevocable trusts are an effective estate planning tool, especially in life insurance planning, educational planning, and charitable gifting.

Whether a client desires to make educational gifts or charitable gifts in the most tax-effective manner, seek a vehicle to own life insurance to fund a buy-sell arrangement, provide liquidity to pay estate taxes upon death, or reduce the gross value of an estate for estate tax purpose.

Using this, and other estate planning tools like Wills, Powers of Attorneys, land trusts, and other estate planning vehicles, Dove & Dove can prepare you an estate planning strategy to reach your individual goals.

Dove & Dove is an excellent law firm with a wealth of experience and resources. The firm represented me and advocated for my child in an immensely difficult, nearly impossible case, and won! They truly listened, not only as legal professionals, but also as a person and as a parent. They were patient and understanding with me through the hardest moments of my life. They fought hard and I highly recommend the firm!

Dove and Dove, The words that I would use to sum up my multiple experiences would be; Professional, Attentive Listening, and Experienced. I have entrusted them to help protect my family through Estate services and was very happy with the Will/Trust that they created for my family.

I have also used them for real-estate transactions where they went above and beyond with their service to make sure that I understood every detail of the transaction. I have used Dove and Dove multiple times and will continue to use them in the future when the need arises.

~ Luke

When I needed legal help for a personal matter I called Dove and Dove at the recommendation of a friend. I had heard of them before but never needed legal help until then. I was referred to Dustin Probst and was able to meet with him right away. I was very happy with the initial meeting and retained him that day. That was almost five years ago and to this day I will still only use them for any matters requiring legal counsel in not only any civil matters, but business matters as well. They are very quick to respond to an email, text, or call and have proven this many times over. If Dustin is not available to help for any urgent matters, I know that any of the others in the office can and will help as needed. I have referred friends and family to them for legal help and will continue to use them for any of my personal needs as well. They are a great group of people to work with.

~ Paul R

Liz Nohren has lead me out of a bad situation and has helped me to regain my independence.  She not only has extensive legal knowledge, but also genuinely cares for her clients.  She has went above and beyond in passionately pushing forward on the issues in a timely fashion despite the opposing party’s numerous efforts to slow the process down. She remained concerned about me as a person, not just a client. Liz helped to give my sons a voice in the process, respected them and recognized their opinions.  She remained focused on my goals and has worked towards achieving these in the court room.  I would highly recommend Liz and Dove & Dove for any legal needs.
