Your estate plan should always be customized by someone who understands your unique needs, desires, and challenges, and knows how to protect you and your loved ones. Everyone needs an estate plan, regardless of net worth, because estate planning includes much more than saving estate taxes:

  • Choosing someone to handle your finances if you are unable to do so while you are alive

  • Choosing someone to make your medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so 

  • Making your wishes known for end-of-life medical decisions

  • Naming a guardian for your minor children

  • Protecting family members with special needs

  • Avoiding conservatorship

  • Avoiding probate through Revocable Living Trusts and other methods

  • Minimizing estate and inheritance taxes for your heirs

  • Minimizing income taxes


We patiently and efficiently assist Successor Trustees in administering Revocable Living Trusts after the death of the grantor. Although living trusts avoid probate and the associated fees, there is administrative work that must get done after a death. 


With Nancy Rose Law, successor trustees can feel confident that they will receive the help they need with compassion and cost-consciousness.


When a decedent passes away with a will but no trust, or with no estate planning documents, probate is the court-supervised legal process of gathering the decedent's assets, paying the decedent's liabilities, and ultimately distributing what's left to the heirs.

Probate is complex, lengthy, and extremely detail-oriented. With Nancy Rose Law at the helm, clients can make the important decisions without feeling anxious and overwhelmed.

Legal Protection with Personal Connection

"It's simple...when clients feel at ease, I understand their needs better and serve them best.  Dealing with the death of loved ones, or tackling your own estate planning can be emotional and anxiety-producing.  Consulting an attorney should not add to your stress! My clients will tell you that I'm patient and easy to talk to, and they often tell me how relieved they feel when they leave my office.  Call me for your free would be an honor to help you navigate through your legal issues."

Stellar Five-Star Client Service*


Not enough stars to describe my overwhelming gratitude. After my mother died, all the legal formalities stressed me out and I was overwhelmed. Nancy Rose definitely helped put me at ease. Sincerity is of highest importance to me and Nancy has proven her sincerity and her professional savvy. With all said, in my personal opinion, her finest quality is her ease of availability. I feel like I can contact her at any time and I reach her directly.

I was fortunate to find Nancy to take my probate case from 2 previous lawyers who were horrible and had little to zero knowledge of probate. I lost thousands of dollars in lawyer fees and gained two and half years of anxiety and stress before I finally found Nancy. Nancy expertly undertook my probate case battling with my nefarious relatives who had made false accusations and claims against me just for their financial gain after my father’s passing. I really needed a lawyer who was on my side, understood my situation and could really fight for me. I found all these qualities in Nancy and I’m so thankful and blessed that I stumbled upon her advertisement on and gave her a call. She was the kind of probate lawyer I needed from the beginning. She was always available to answer my questions, she thoroughly explained documents or anything about the case that I didn’t understand, she swiftly brought my case to a close and most of all she was kind and never condescending. If you’re looking for a great lawyer to work with, I highly recommend giving Nancy a call. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and how she handled everything.

I am so glad I stopped procrastinating and had Nancy Rose do my estate plan. From start to finish, she was responsive, thorough, and compassionate. Honestly, she is the best explainer of a complicated issue, and walked me through every step of the way, making it a painless process for me. She quoted me a flat fee, which made me know I could ask as many questions as I wanted. I recommend her without any doubts.

Nancy made is so easy for me. We reconnected before the death of my husband. She was then by my side, after he passed, supporting me thru legal & financial decisions, as a friend, lawyer and accountant. She supported me in moving forward immediately with my own will & a family trust. Nancy made it so easy for me. Her knowledge of the process and ability to relate on my level was what I needed at that time. Since then she has kept me up to date in changes in the law that relate to me. I highly recommend Nancy Rose for your legal needs!
