Practice Areas

Estate Planning
Joner Law works with individuals and families to create estate plans that protect our clients, their families and their hard earned money. Our straightforward flat-fee approach means you know up front what the cost of our services will be, and our down-to-earth approach allows you to make the tough decisions that will result in the peace of mind that effective planning provides. Whether you need a simple Will or a complex Trust, we can make sure all your estate planning needs are covered. Our attorneys also offer estate planning services to owners of closely held businesses and entrepreneurs. An integrated estate plan and business succession plan can provide you with peace of mind that your family and your business will thrive without you.

Probate
Joner Law works with families to administer the Estate of a loved one after they pass away. During this difficult time, our attorneys make it their goal to carry the weight of the legal procedures so that you can process the emotions. We will work with you to establish the Personal Representative of the Estate, identify creditors, and pass on assets to beneficiaries. We’ll also handle all of the paperwork and filings with the court to relieve you of as much stress as possible. In a process that seems daunting, we’ll walk you through step-by-step to make sure all of your needs are met and all of the boxes are checked.

Guardianships
Joner Law represents Petitioners for Guardianships. We particularly focus on families with special needs children turning 18 years of age and the elderly that have lost capacity to manage their own affairs.  Our attorneys will pace you through the process of establishing a guardianship from filing the petition through the final hearing. The family then has the option of maintaining representation ongoing, or representing themselves if they are up to the challenge.  Guardianships are an important matter that concern all aspects of the incapacitated person’s life. Our attorneys will treat all family members with courtesy and care while helping them navigate the process with as little stress as possible.
