Dedicated and Responsive Wills & Trusts Representation

The trust and estates practice at Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC will provide you with counsel regarding all your estate needs, including:

  • Wills
  • Living wills
  • Trusts
  • Power of Attorney
  • Health care proxies
  • Probate/Estate Administration

We work hard to see to the orderly distribution of an individual’s property at his or her death. In order to accomplish our clients' goals, we consider the implications of wills, taxes, guardianship, conservatorship, insurance, powers of attorney, property and trusts. Our skilled wills and trusts attorneys will draft all legal documents necessary.

Probate is the court proceeding through which a will is determined valid, and the estate of the deceased is administered. The process typically includes liquidation of estate assets, payment of necessary taxes and distribution of property to heirs.

We can wisely counsel you as to how to avoid the sometimes time-consuming, expensive probate process or guide you through it, as well as handle non-probate transfers of your loved one's assets. If no will exists, state law will determine how the assets of the estate will be distributed.

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of consulting with an attorney possessing experience and knowledge of estate administration and related areas. Please contact one of our conveniently located Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC law offices today.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie

My mom was the victim of nursing home neglect/abuse. I retained Tom and he provided great representation in a professional, courteous fashion. He made a very uncomfortable ordeal bearable. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of sound guidance and professional representation. Paul D.
