About Us

Planning for Families. Planning for Life.

Attorney Kimberly Butler Rainen Is Here For You

As we grow older and pass through the different stages of life, we face new challenges. Estate planning helps you prepare for a wide variety of different issues ranging from settling the question of who would care for your children if anything should ever happen to you to paying for nursing home care and using your estate to benefit those you love after you have gone.

We focus our efforts on creating highly effective estate planning solutions that can meet all of your needs. We get to know who you are, what your needs are and what you hope to accomplish through your estate plan. We then generate a plan that is tailored to whatever specific needs you have. From Medicaid planning to special needs planning and traditional wills and trusts, we know how to help you.

Beyond estate planning, we also offer counsel on more immediate elder law issues such as establishing guardianships and conservatorships and assistance with trust administration, probate and finding the financial resources necessary to assist a loved one in need of nursing home care. We can help you help your senior loved one with whatever difficulties he or she is facing.
