A Tradition of Legal Service for Four Generations


At the Law Offices of James F. Cote, we turn our clients' visions of the future into sound legal plans. We create well-reasoned estate plans that reflect our clients' intentions, address their family concerns, and take into account any estate tax issues. We draft customized documents that accurately and clearly state those plans. We then review those documents with our clients so they clearly understand each document.

Our practice focuses on estate planning, advising a wide range of clients - from those with small estates who need a simple Will to make their bequests, to those with large estates involving multiple trusts and sophisticated tax planning strategies.  In addition, the office also assists clients with post-death matters, including probate proceedings and trust administrations.

We help our probate and trust administration clients through difficult times after the loss of a loved one by handling all aspects of the probate or trust affairs. Whether it be dealing with creditors, inventories, assets, sales, or final beneficiary distributions, our goal is to handle stressful issues for our clients so they can begin to heal emotionally from their loss.
