Health Care Planning – A solid estate plan includes planning for incapacity or disability. As a part of the revocable trust plan or standing alone, Mr. Casey is ready to counsel you in regard to planning for disability, incapacity, or end-of-life health care planning by use of durable power of attorney, living will, “do not resuscitate” orders, and similar documents.

Real Property Title and Litigation – In some instances property ownership may not have been clearly established and it is necessary to commence an action to determine heirs, quiet title, partition real estate, or to draft legally enforceable documents to resolve a matter in dispute. Mr. Casey is experienced in the areas of quiet title, partition, contested property claims, prosecuting or defending foreclosure proceedings.
Guardianship – In those situations where the guardianship of a minor or an adult is needed, Mr. Casey has assisted families members in gaining control over the personal and estate affairs of the family member through the process of guardianship.

Settlement of Estates Outside of Court – It is sometimes necessary to involve an attorney in the settlement of an estate even when a formal probate proceeding is not necessary.
