AREA OF LAWEstate Planning & Administration

Assisting families with planning through all stages with life and the probate process.

No matter where you are in life, estate planning is important. While many people think that estate planning is just for the wealthy, the fact of the matter is that a well-rounded estate plan is not just about protecting your money or assets. Through various tools, you can address everything from who can make health care decisions for you to who will take care of your minor children should you pass away unexpectedly.

At Arch Law Group, our attorneys have extensive experience helping individuals create estate plans that fit their goals. We can help people in the Middletown, Old Saybrook and Hartford areas with:

  • Wills
  • Trusts, including special needs trusts
  • Minimizing estate taxes
  • Advance health care directives
  • Conservatorships and guardianships
  • Powers of attorney

Estate planning and administration often intersect with other areas of the law, such as real estate. For this reason, our attorneys take a collaborative approach, working together on complex matters to ensure they are handled correctly.

Areas of Estate Planning & Administration We Specialize In

Estate Administration & Probate


Upon the death of an individual, his or her estate must be administered according to his or her wishes as they are laid out in a will and other documents. Often, an estate must go through the probate process, in which a court oversees the distribution of the individual’s assets as well as the payment of any debts.

The probate process is extremely complex and involves an extensive amount of paperwork. It is also possible for a dispute to arise during probate, including a family member or other party contesting the validity of the will. Our lawyers have years of experience helping individuals through the probate process, including handling probate litigation.

Our firm has significant experience with all aspects of estate planning and probate and trust administration. We can help with a variety of services in this area including charitable giving and personal and business planning.
