Wealth preservation, succession planning, estates and trusts administration, and related litigation are deeply personal and sensitive issues. At Wilk Auslander, we provide a high level of service and individualized attention to assure that our clients' unique and personal goals are met.

We represent individuals and families in connection with domestic and international estate planning, business succession planning, trust and estate administration, and related litigation.

In addition to serving high-net-worth individuals and families, we advise corporate executives, philanthropists, business owners and real estate investors.

We also counsel clients regarding the intricacies of trust and estate administration and post-mortem tax planning.

Our lawyers help clients with both simple and complex needs. Whether a client simply needs to update a will or is involved in contentious trust administration litigation, we have the experience to resolve matters in a cost-effective and sensitive manner.
