Our Practice Areas


Start your estate planning by creating a will or update an existing will if your life circumstances have changed. Wills form the foundation of your estate plan.


Name a guardian who will care for and protect your children or other family members if you are no longer able to do so.

Advanced Healthcare Directive

Shelter your assets from taxes, provide income for your spouse, establish spending boundaries for your beneficiaries, maintain privacy, and more. Trusts are effective tools that can extend the reach of your estate plans.

From Our Clients

Kristen was referred to us while we were working through my mother-in-law’s (lack of) estate. She took the time to patiently answer questions and help us during a tough time. Because of this, we were soon after very happy to hire her to draft much-needed updates to our wills. She made it an efficient, painless process. I am happy to recommend her and her team for any estate-related needs you have.

Doug Evans

Kristen provided excellent advice during a one hour telephone consultation in response to my questions about Probate Court and serving as Executor of my late’s husband’s Will. I was so impressed that I hired her to revise my Will and set up a Trust. She was so knowledgeable, responsive, and efficient and her fees are so reasonable. I highly recommend Kristen Forbes and Forbes Law Firm.

Neldon Leon

I worked with Kristen after losing my mom. She handled the probate process with great care and attention. She explained every step in detail, dealt with a few difficult matters including a complicated home sale, and always provided me options where available. I couldn’t have navigated the process without her. It went so well we also asked her to handle updates to our estate planning, and she made that process so easy. I highly recommend Kristen. She was fantastic to work with!
