*the result is greater than the sum of its parts*

A sole practitioner or small law office that specializes in estate planning or trust law may not always be able or willing to handle the variety of issues that may arise for a particular client. Matters involving complex estate plans, trust and probate administration or litigation, conservatorship and guardianship administration, family owned businesses and real property can all arise very quickly but not all offices are ready to handle such variety.

The Hawaii Estate Law Group, a network of independent law offices, was formed to collectively, through its members, cover a wide array of trust and related practice areas. When working with any member of the Group, clients can rest easy knowing that, should a problem beyond the norm arise, reinforcements are a quick phone call away.

Business Law
