No one enjoys talking about estate planning. But proper planning is the key to assuring that potentially huge taxes on an estate are minimized, that property is distributed to intended beneficiaries, and that your intentions regarding important health care decisions are respected. At Buckalew Frizzell & Crevina, we can fulfill all of your estate planning needs, from drafting a simple will to advising you about and creating a multi-faceted estate plan that includes a health care proxy, durable power of attorney, living will, and trust instruments, all tailored to your personal needs and wishes. If you are concerned about a relative or loved one who is in failing health or having difficulty conducting their own affairs, we can use the right combination of tools, such as a trust, guardianship, conservatorship, or power of attorney, to protect them.

Our attorneys also provide caring consultation and services to guide you upon the death of a loved one, particularly through the probate and estate administration process. And lastly, when an unfortunate dispute over a will or lifetime estate arises, we can provide you with experienced legal counsel and support through the resolution of that dispute, whether it involves negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation.

Most of all, at Buckalew Frizzell & Crevina, we are not only strong legal practitioners of estate planning law, but caring and compassionate listeners to our clients. Find out how we can help you by emailing Mary Wynn Seiter ( or phone us at 201-612-5200.
