Kurre Schneps LLP

A Premier Elder Law and Trusts & Estates Law Firm

Our Practice Areas

Estate Planning
There are many legal strategies involved in estate planning and most new clients often say that they do not have an estate plan.
Elder Law/Medicaid
Elder law is another aspect of estate planning focusing primarily on the needs of families and individuals as they age.
Special Needs Planning
Special Needs Planning helps provide for the special needs of our disabled loved ones when we are no longer there to organize and advocate on their behalf.
Probate/Estate & Trust Administration
There can be terrific grief and pain at the loss of a loved one. External stresses can unnecessarily add to that grief and pain.
Guardianship
We guide our clients through the entire guardianship process which can be an overwhelming matter without proper legal representation.
Estate Tax Planning
Historically speaking, the federal estate tax is an excise tax levied on the transfer of a person’s assets after death. In actuality, it is neither a death tax nor an inheritance tax, but more accurately a transfer tax.
