Welcome to Shoffner & Associates
Shoffner & Associates provides a wonderful thing for Boston. That is — excellent legal representation.

After ten years of owning and operating her own company, Freya Shoffner gave up her search for a good lawyer for her small business and her family. She went to law school with the goal of building a law firm that could take care of a small business' every legal need. She also wanted that firm to give all types of families the best representation possible.

Shoffner & Associates advises small start-up businesses in business planning, entity selection, and other formation issues. They help their established business clients with business litigation, tax, trademark and copyright advice, and they provide outstanding support in succession planning, estate planning, business transfers and sales, and dissolution.

Now, more than ever, your company and your family need the help of experienced lawyers who know how to get the job done the right way — the first time.

Don't wait. Call us.

Guiding a Trustee.

You have selected a trustee to manage your trust as part of your estate plan. The trustee knows that this requires that they handle the investments, bookkeeping, and taxes. Do they also know under what circumstances money should be distributed to the beneficiaries and how much?

Advantages of a Professional Trustee



The naming of a trustee can be an important part of creating one's estate plan. When establishing a trust many people choose a close friend or relative as trustee. While this often works well, naming a professional trustee can be a better option.
