Reed Spellman


“There's a lot of emotion involved in estate planning and probate matters. I'm often meeting my clients when they've just lost a loved one, or when family infighting is coming to a head. I take the time to understand their needs and goals, advise them with a cool head, and help them get a view of the bigger picture.”

Reed Spellman counsels individuals and families in a wide range of estate planning and post-mortem planning issues, including anything from a simple will to advanced tax planning, as well as probate administration, trust administration, and estate tax filings and issues.

Reed provides his clients with creative and strategic guidance to preserve their assets. He has extensive experience in assisting clients with the creation and administration of trusts and guardianships to provide for minors and adults who cannot care for themselves, as well as representing clients in will contests and probate litigation. Reed’s clients trust him for compassionate representation that protects their rights and assets in the most streamlined and peaceable manner possible.
