Helping families navigate a probate administration following the loss of a loved is some of the work that Brendan T. King finds most gratifying. Brendan enjoys advising clients in all aspects of probate and estate administrations, serving as counsel to the executor, administrator, family and beneficiaries during the exacting administration and distribution of a decedent’s estate. In addition, Brendan works with banks and bank trust departments to serve as their counsel during the administration of an estate. Brendan’s probate court practice also includes guardianships, name-changes, and wrongful death related matters.


The estate planning portion of Brendan’s practice allows him to regularly advise individuals, as well as young families, married couples, and business owners with the drafting of a practical estate plan to meet their specific needs. In handling estate planning, Brendan meets and gets to know his clients to generate the best plan possible for their needs. Every client and every situation requires different treatment because every client is unique. This often includes disability planning, as well as planning for death and the efficient transfer of assets, through the use of living trusts, powers of attorney and titling of accounts.


Brendan assists buyers and sellers of real estate as they work through the contract for sale or purchase, as well as the financing, contracting, and escrow processes.


Brendan counsels clients on the formation, modification and governing related to their small businesses. Many clients who attempt to handle their own business formation do not fully limit their liability. As a lawyer and small business owner, Brendan gives practical solutions and looks forward to providing advice that allows clients focus their attention on running and growing their businesses.

IN ADDITION, Brendan helps clients with many legal matters including small business formation and advising, wrongful death matters, name changes, guardianships and collections. Please contact him to see how he can help.
