Time moves faster than ever in our 24/7, wired-all-the-time world. Spending some of it to focus on the future – whatever it may bring for you and your family – is always a good investment. Our Estate Planning Practice helps families and individuals manage and protect their assets during their lifetime, provide optimum flexibility in the event of their disability, and transfer their wealth efficiently upon death.

The attorneys at McLaughlin & Quinn, LLC bring a one-of-a-kind perspective to the practice of estate planning. As the former owner and managing director at Sugarman-Sinai Memorial Chapel, a funeral home in Providence, RI, Jill E. Sugarman, Esq. has witnessed firsthand the lasting effects of estate planning. Jill’s experience helping families during the most difficult times has led to her expertise in asking the right questions, listening compassionately, and putting into place a concrete legal plan that promotes family harmony.

Jill begins all estate plans with an in-depth analysis of each client's unique situation to identify and plan for all contingencies – both expected and unforeseen. She invests a lot of time in this process because all too often clients don’t realize what they may need to fully protect themselves or their family in the future.

Each estate or family plan Jill creates is different – in fact no two are alike. Whatever your need - a will, trust, power of attorney, guardianship for minor children, or effective tax planning – you can count on original, innovative solutions that are based on an extensive knowledge of advanced planning tools.  Jill's expertise in this area was recently recognized when she was named as the Rhode Island attorney for the Probate Attorney Alliance.
