Firm Overview

Effective as of 1 January 2019, Cort MacBeth Smith, a longtime associate of The Barklage Law Firm, assumed ownership and management of The Barklage Law Firm LLC.  During the transition period, you will be able to reach us through the same telephone number and e-mail.   Upon completion of the transition, the new firm name will be Smith Estates and Trusts, LLC.  Thomas John Barklage has assumed the position as “Of Counsel” to Smith Estates and Trusts, LLC, and will have a continuing association and relationship with the new firm.

We are an established firm of experienced attorneys emphasizing estate planning including wills, revocable trusts, special needs trusts, living wills, powers of attorneys, probate and trust administration, guardianships and conservatorships.  You will find that our firm’s many years of experience will be of great value as you make decisions relating to your particular situation.

During our office hours, you will speak with Laura or Deborah, rather than voice mail, who can direct you to an attorney who will be able to answer your questions or schedule a meeting to discuss your needs and concerns.  Our mission is to deliver large firm service, while maintaining the personal attention expected of a small firm.  We look forward to hearing from you.
