What We Can Do For You

Estate planning is far more complicated than distributing your possessions to your loved ones. There are many other factors to consider, such as your state of health later in life, tax burden, as well as how to make it easier for your family to claim inheritance. You can’t prepare for circumstances that you don’t even know are possible, which is why an experienced Maryland estate planning lawyer is an invaluable resource.

For our lawyers, estate planning is about providing sound advice, answering your questions and drafting documents to your specific needs and desires. From creating a will to ensuring it is followed and executed to a tee, Okun/Billian PA provides the full range of estate planning and will services in Maryland, including:

  • Wills and Power of Attorney
  • Advance Healthcare Directive
  • Living Trusts
  • Estate and Probate Administration
  • Child Custody and Guardianship
  • Business Buyout and Succession Agreements
  • Will Contesting and Estate Litigation
  • Elder Law and Asset Preservation
  • Probate Proceedings
  • Litigation

From our experience, our clients welcome legal help and advice during both estate planning and administration. We are able to provide support to the personal representative of the deceased and make sure the estate administration process is as stress-free as possible in this time of sadness.

Complicated Cases Don’t Scare Us

Some estate planning cases are rather straightforward, while others require additional research and brainstorming on our part to make sure your will is written and fulfilled as you wish. For example, estate planning and administration in favor of a spouse who is not a U.S. Citizen, not legally married or is a same-sex partner can pose some challenges. As supporters of marriage equality, our Owings Mills, Maryland estate planning attorneys understand that there could be complicated estate planning issues related to same-sex couples. We are capable of handling such delicate and complex matters in a timely manner.

“Harvey completely disproves the lawyer stereotype. His demeanor is professional. He’s punctual, and he answers my questions in a timely manner, usually the same day. What has impressed me most is his sincerity. Besides having a client-attorney relationship, ours grew into a friendship, which I don’t think is typical for most lawyers. Harvey really cares and he’ll do anything for you.”
