Committed To Achieving Your Goals

Business, tax and estate planning needs careful consideration, a comprehensive strategy and an appropriate evaluation of the risk involved.

At Barulich Dugoni & Suttmann Law Group, Inc., we are committed to help protect what our clients have worked hard to create. Our attorneys realize that our clients are better served by a plan that avoids issues from the start, rather than by facing a dispute later. We accomplish this by understanding the details of each situation before creating a strategy that equally anticipates risk, incorporates innovative techniques and focuses on achieving the goals of the client.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Estate Planning
  • Probate And Trust Administration
  • Business And Civil Litigation
  • Taxation
