Areas of Expertise

Estate Planning

Estate planning is at the core of everything we do. A properly drafted estate plan will replace the terms of the State’s estate plan with your own.
There are many legal strategies involved in estate planning, including wills, revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, durable powers of attorney, and health care documents.

Asset Protection

Asset protection planning involves making prudent decisions today to protect yourself, your business, and your hard-earned assets from loss due to lawsuits, creditors or bankruptcies.
This type of legal planning is especially prudent for professionals and business owners, whose personal assets could be at risk due the nature of their employment.

Elder Law

Elder law is another aspect of estate planning, focusing primarily on the needs of families and individuals as they age.
Issues of aging include senior housing and home care, long-term (or nursing home) care, guardianships and health care documents, Medicare and Medicaid.

Probate and Estate Administration

The probate or trust administration process occurs during an emotional time and the complex, detailed tasks associated with the process can only add to the stress.
Probate and estate administration are the processes through which estate assets are transferred after death.

Success Stories

I am very pleased with my experience with TrustBuilders Law Group. Back in the Spring of 2015 when my husband and I first started our relationship with TrustBuilders, Wake Buxton and his Paralegal, Carlos Gonzalez, were very thorough in explaining how the Trust is established and answering our many questions.

- Client

As my wife and I near the completion of the estate plan drawn up by Trustbuilders, for ourselves and for our children, we want to thank Wake and all the staff for their expert guidance throughout what is in fact a complicated and emotional process. In such matters, one wants the assistance of professionals, and that we have received. Thank you!
