Attorney Crosby Elliott assists individuals and families in all aspects of estate planning and trust and estate administration. Crosby’s experience in both planning and administration allow him to expertly advise clients through their many stages of life. Crosby prides himself on building relationships with clients to help simplify what can often be an overwhelming experience.
Crosby’s practice focuses on how best to minimize or avoid Massachusetts or federal estate taxes, avoid probate, shield assets from the cost of long-term care, and protect assets for beneficiaries. Crosby accomplishes these goals by employing sophisticated and comprehensive estate planning techniques, including the implantation of revocable trusts and various irrevocable trusts. Crosby also prepares federal gift tax returns.
A significant portion of Crosby’s practice also involves counseling clients through the administration of a loved one’s trust or estate. In doing so, Crosby regularly prepares and files both Massachusetts and federal estate tax returns, petitions with the probate court, and assists in dispute resolution between parties.
Crosby also hosts presentations at businesses, organizations, and clubs on the importance of estate planning.
Outside of the office, Crosby enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and his dog. During the non-winter months, Crosby spends his free time either in Kennebunkport, Maine, hiking along the Appalachian Trail, or just generally enjoying the outdoors.
