rb LEGAL, LLC works with you to develop documents specifically appropriate for your family including:
- Wills: Ensure your wishes are documented and followed. Who needs a will? Individuals, couples, families, empty nesters, second marriages and those who don’t like the state’s legal plan for their property.

Trusts can protect and provide for you, your spouse, children, grandchildren, loved ones with challenges and special needs, pets, houses, land, family farms, cabins, charitable gifts, small businesses, gun owners, and more.
- Probate: Navigate the frustrating court processes, documents, and intricacies of estate administration.
- Guardianships/Conservatorships: Plan for minor children, those with special needs, or those with long-term care needs.
