"The nature of my practice is very personal. My clients aren’t big corporations – they’re families: brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers. I try to give them the confidence that they can make informed decisions for their estate planning, and get through the process of probate and estate administration when that time comes."

Robert Botts’ clients aren’t big corporations. They’re families working through the difficult decisions surrounding estate planning, probate, and estate law. He helps them understand the process and gives them confidence and peace of mind.

It can be a daunting task for someone to consider the prospect of the end of life and to decide who should receive his or her possessions. By working with clients to plan properly and balance their concerns, Robert helps minimize the risk of conflicts down the line.

Each client has different needs when dealing with these matters. Therefore, Robert delivers a level of expertise tailored to the unique aspects of each case. And he goes out of his way to make every client feel comfortable through education and understanding.

Because there’s so much misunderstanding about trusts and estates—not to mention inaccurate and misleading information floating around—Robert has spoken regularly on the topic for over 20 years. His goal is to educate the public and help them understand a confusing area of the law.

His board certification in Estate Planning and Probate Law, and his years of experience, make him a respected expert on the topic of estate planning, probate, and estate law. But it’s Robert’s approach to clients and his willingness to listen and teach that makes families turn to him and see him as their valued counselor in these important matters.
