Wills, Estates and Trusts

The wills, estates and trusts team at Bell Davis & Pitt addresses estate planning as an evolving process that changes based on our clients’ stages of life.

We work closely with owners of closely-held businesses, professionals, and families in developing both basic estate plans and sophisticated wealth transfer strategies that minimize adverse tax consequences. In each case, the result is an estate plan that meets the family, business, tax, charitable and financial needs and desires of our clients. This commitment continues as our attorneys assist with our clients’ trust, estate and guardianship administration needs.

Our team includes a CPA and several attorneys with more than 25 years of estate planning and administration experience.
