Kristin Dittus, JD, LLM

Attorney

I am happy to help you in any of the following areas of my practice; please click on the topic link for more information.

Kristin Dittus enjoys working with people from all walks of life.

From young families who may be most concerned about naming guardians to older clients who want to get their affairs in order or are concerned about Medicaid eligibility, as well as those with complex assets who need to reduce their taxable estate and transfer wealth to younger generations due to significant assets and impending taxes.

Over the past twelve years, Kristin has advised a wide range of clients, from individuals just beginning to build some wealth, to blended families trying to protect both the spouse and provide for children from a previous marriage, as well as high net worth families with estates between $5 to $30 million dollars.

Don’t let those difficult decisions keep you from creating an effective plan. The answer to your estate planning questions is just a phone call away.
