For nearly four decades, Lippman, Semsker & Salb has focused its work on the areas of law that affect people most often. We focus on Work-Life and Home-Life issues, helping individuals, families, and business navigate legal and financial challenges. We provide legal services in the following areas:

Wills, Trusts, Estates & Probate

We have a robust practice helping families care for their loved ones, friends, and charitable interests. Drawing from a deep well of experience, we are well-equipped to advise and educate our clients. Our estate planning practice differs from most others in several key ways. First, we ordinarily bill our clients with flat fees, so that our clients can feel free to communicate with us without fear that it will bloat the invoice. Second, we serve clients along the full spectrum, from individuals with very modest assets and simple affairs to large families with high net worth and complex needs. Regardless of our client’s needs, though, the level of our service remains stellar.
