Dover Estate Planning Lawyer

At Street & Ellis, P.A., our attorneys focus on providing our clients with practical solutions that will meet their needs. With more than 44 years of legal experience, we have found this simple formula extremely effective in providing exceptional, cost-effective representation for clients throughout Delaware.

If you are searching for a lawyer to help you through a legal matter, we understand that you might be facing a stressful situation. At Street & Ellis, P.A., our lawyers bring legal and personal experience, as well as commitment to providing comprehensive pre-emptive solutions whenever possible, rather than crisis representation and damage control.

Pre-emptive Planning Rather Than Crisis Control

At Street & Ellis, P.A., we believe that there are two ways to approach legal problems. First, you can avoid them completely, only to have larger problems emerge as a result. The other method is to pre-emptively plan for the future, beat future problems to the punch and arrive at solutions before real problems arise.
This pre-emptive approach is most prevalent in our estate planning and probate practice, which includes wills, trusts, financial planning and Medicaid planning. Our Dover estate planning attorneys work with clients to find personally tailored solutions well in advance of the problems that could arise in the future. This approach is cheaper, faster and much less stressful for our clients.

Business Representation

At Street & Ellis, we provide business law representation for Delaware businesses. Our business representation includes the initial entity selection, formation and filing, contract negotiation, drafting and review, real estate law and civil litigation of all kinds.

Prompt, Cost-Effective Banking and Collections Law

One of our founding attorneys has 20 years of experience working as in-house counsel for a bank. We use that experience to provide efficient banking and collections law solutions for our clients.
In all of our legal practice areas, our focus is to provide quality legal representation at a competitive price.
