Port Legal was formed to provide highly professional, valuable and skilled legal services to individuals, families and businesses. Our focus areas include: probate, estate planning, and real estate.
Whether you own significant tax-deferred retirement assets, have a blended family or a child with special needs, having a will provides assurance that those you love are cared for even after you’re gone.
From living wills to advance directives like a health care power of attorney, we can help you understand your legal options for end of life care.
Probate isn’t inevitable--- with revocable and non-revocable trusts, we can help you maintain your privacy and protect your estate from the hassle and expense of probate court.
A probate attorney can facilitate a more efficient process, protect you and your family from liability, and provide peace of mind that only comes with a specialist’s advice.
With a Medicaid trust, you get the care you need without having to spend down your life’s savings to qualify for benefits.
Business succession and financial planning are smart, strategic ways to protect your business, your partners and your loved ones from the risks that come with business ownership.
Elder care attorneys can help families navigate specialized areas of the law, including matters of long term care, social security, and health care directives, so loved ones get what they need no matter where they are in the continuum of care.
Powerful legal tools like wills and living trusts can help protect your estate from conservatorship and provide for your dependent children in the event you are suddenly incapacitated.
A hoarder’s estate can bring equal parts treasure and trauma, but with the right tools and legal professionals, loved ones can recover sentimental gems and family heirlooms from beneath the clutter, and identify items that could bring significant value to the sale of the estate.
At Port Legal, we take the time to understand your unique objectives and we tailor our services to serve your specific needs and goals.
Many of our legal strategies focus on planning to advance your goals and preempt the potential for conflicts and disputes. Our mission is to provide thoughtful, insightful legal advice to assure sound decisions that promote growth and protect your matters from potential future problems.
For litigation, our firm engages a positive approach to the resolution of all legal disputes, providing straightforward solutions to everyone involved in the process. While we advocate for swift resolutions in order to avoid the time, money and stress of a trial, we are prepared to try your case should the circumstances call for it, expressly in your best interest.
