Tax Law

The U.S. Tax Code is complex and fraught with traps for the unwary, and the IRS can be difficult to deal with. Westward LAW’s tax attorney can help you find your way through these traps and determine the most effective path through the minefield of U.S. Tax Law.

Whether you are in need of relief from tax debt or you need advice about complex business transactions and the tax implications from them, don’t go it alone; make an appointment to speak with us.

If you have multiple tax years worth of problems, it will only get worse. Westward Law can show you the way towards coming out of the shadows to settle your tax debt.


Probate of an estate is sometimes necessary, and sometimes strategic. No sense in putting it off. Westward Law can help navigate the probate courts when you are grieving and not in position to do so. We can help to make it relatively easy and much less painful; take the weight off your shoulders so you can focus on other family matters. If you are a Personal Representative or a Trustee, let us help you with your responsibilities. If you need to administer an estate and you are not named as the Personal Representative, or if there is no Will (most common), we can assist there, too.

Remember, time can be of the essence when it comes to estate matters. Don’t let the work necessary linger – schedule time with a Probate Attorney today.

Estate Planning

Everyone should have an estate plan. From a simple will to a complex estate plan requiring multiple trusts and other complex business and financial instruments – Westward LAW can help you with all of your estate planning needs. Our estate planning attorney can assist individuals, families, and small business owners with all of their planning needs for a more secure and certain future. Sleep well at night knowing that you have sufficiently protected your family.

When it comes time for administration, we’re here to assist with the probate and estate / trust administration, too.
