“I always tell clients the goal of estate planning is for them to have peace of mind that there is a clear plan in place that will take care of their loved ones, minimize taxes and protect their assets. With an estate plan in place, clients can live and love life with the peace of mind that their affairs are in order.”

Nik advises families and individuals on all aspects of estate planning, probate and trust administration, and estate tax returns. He works with a diverse range of clients to develop customized estate plans that carry out the client’s wishes, minimize estate taxes and avoid probate.

Having two young children himself, Nik understands the important estate planning decisions facing couples with minor children and helps these couples plan for the unexpected by creating estate plans addressing issues such as guardians for minor children and utilizing trusts to manage and conserve a child’s inheritance.

Nik is licensed in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Florida, which allows him to provide seamless service and guidance to the many “snowbird” clients who spend a portion of the year in the Sunshine state and clients who are changing their residency.

For estate and trust administration matters, Nik helps clients and their families address the many difficult issues that can arise upon a loved one’s passing. Such issues include navigating the often complex probate court process, assisting clients with distributing assets such as real estate, investments, and retirement accounts to the intended beneficiaries, and preparing the required Federal, Massachusetts and Rhode Island estate tax returns.
