"If we do not choose to plan, then we choose to have others plan for us." ~ Richard I. Winwood
At Riddle Law Group, we approach estate planning with the objective of maintaining familial relationships which can be easily and catastrophically damaged without proper planning. We start from the ground up for each and every client in developing a customized, well-tailored plan which takes into consideration varying family dynamics. We believe that no one estate plan fits more than one family, and we customize each plan accordingly. With 20 years of litigation experience, we are able to recognize areas which could potentially lead to protracted and expensive litigation if not properly addressed in the planning stages.At Riddle Law Group we understand the importance of family relationships and work hard to preserve them.
"Death is not the end. There remains the litigation over the estate." ~ Ambrose Bierce
Unfortunately, even the best plans occasionally give rise to litigation. When the litigation involves trusts and estates, clients need an attorney that knows how to litigate a case as well as how to interpret the underlying documents. With 24 years of litigation experience and 17 years of estate planning experience, Ms. Riddle is comfortable in both areas and brings a unique skill set to each case. She also understands that these cases are often very emotional and often come when families are still grieving a loss. She therefore brings a high level of strength and integrity to every case she handles.
"As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it." ~ Antoine de Saint Exupery
We know that having a special needs child brings its own challenges, along with its own blessings and rewards. A special needs trust ("SNT") is a legal document designed to benefit an individual who has a disability, while allowing the individual to remain qualified for governmental assistance programs. A SNT is meant not only to maintain benefits eligibility, but also to bring enjoyment and new, positive experiences to the individual. We at Riddle Law Group are honored to work with these unique individuals and their families to assure their quality of life long into the future.
"Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now." ~ Alan Lakein
