Port Legal was formed to provide highly professional, valuable, and skilled legal services to individuals, families, and businesses. Our focus areas include: real estate, probate, estate planning, Medicaid, and elder care. If you're seeking guidance on issues in any of these areas of specialty, we have the knowledge and experience required to answer your questions.
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.

Greg has done excellent quality work on multiple estates and trusts. Very responsive and approachable for legal needs and issues. Would highly recommend.
Hired Greg to help with my mother’s estate. He explained the process and was there through probate court. He was very informative and helpful. After the process was over, he helped with my estate planning and setting up a trust. Would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
Greg helped me understand the ins and outs of how estate planning works for me and my business. I didn't realize a will wasn't enough to avoid probate court until after speaking with him.
Greg and his staff have been extremely helpful to me and my family by helping us to navigate paperwork mess that is Probate. Thank you Greg!
