Hughes White Colbo Wilcox & Tervooren, LLC, provides a wide range of estate planning and probate administration services offering legal representation and counseling to create wills and trusts. Our attorneys are also well-prepared to assist those named as personal representatives or executors for an estate.

Of Counsel attorney Paul S Wilcox brings many years of experience representing individuals and families in estate planning and probate law. After carefully reviewing clients’ needs, he assists them with wills, testamentary trust documents, medical directives, durable power of attorney and other estate planning – all customized to individual situations.

He also guides personal representatives (executor, executrix or administrator) through probate administration, whether or not the deceased had a will.
