Wills & Trusts

For over twenty years, Antonoplos & Associates has offered estate planning services to high net worth individuals, families, and business owners throughout Bowie Maryland. Our lawyers’ primary goal is helping families in Maryland develop wealth through estate planning strategies and solutions that achieve these individuals’ goals and maximize the assets that they are able to pass on to their family.

Our Bowie Maryland estate planning attorneys will typically work with clients on creating a last will and testament, establishing trusts, executing a healthcare power of attorney or financial power of attorney, creating a living will, and making funeral arrangements in advance. Starting with our founder and managing partner, Peter Antonoplos, our boutique law firm has sought out other lawyers with degrees and experience in both the legal and financial fields. Because of this, we can increase the tax benefits you receive from creating a will or setting up a trust. Additionally, we are one of the only full-service Bowie law firms. Thus, our attorneys strive to create a personalized relationship with each of our clients. This relationship allows us to understand the concerns of our clients and offer creative solutions to their issues.

Real Estate Law

Bowie Maryland offers great commercial and residential real estate opportunities for real estate investors to first-time homebuyers to large Maryland corporations. While there are many real estate opportunities in the area, it is critical for anyone interested in buying or investing in Bowie real estate to hire a knowledgeable real estate attorney before beginning this process. Antonoplos & Associates Bowie group of attorneys has been consistently recognized as one of the best real estate law firms in Bowie and commonly assists clients with the acquisition, sale, leasing, management, financing and development of office, industrial, retail, and residential real estate projects. Furthermore, our Bowie real estate practice focuses on advising investors, property owners, buyers, sellers, lenders, receivers, brokers, landlords, and tenants throughout Bowie on the purchase and sale of real estate.

When litigation or a form of alternative dispute resolution is inevitable, it is imperative that you have someone on your side who has the ability to quickly navigate legal issues. This is true whether you are buying, selling, leasing, or renting property in or around Bowie. At Antonoplos & Associates, our Bowie real estate litigation lawyers look deeply at each individual dispute. After this first examination, lay out our opponent’s strengths and weaknesses, and then attack these claims in the areas that provide the best opportunities for success. By taking this approach, we provide our clients with the best and easiest path to success. Depending on the circumstances, our Bowie real estate lawyers may decide to negotiate a deal that has creative yet favorable terms for our client. However, other cases might be best suited if our real estate attorneys pursue an approach focused on exposing each of our opponent’s weaknesses.

Probate Law

At Antonoplos & Associates, our probate attorneys assist clients with navigating Maryland Probate Administration and Maryland Probate Litigation in the Bowie area. Maryland probate law is extremely confusing and time consuming. This is true no matter the size of the estate that must pass through this process. In many cases, the passing of a loved one is the first time someone experiences Maryland probate law. Because of this, most individuals do not know anything about the Maryland probate process and require guidance to navigate probating a loved one’s estate. With no understanding of the Maryland probate laws and little professional guidance, family members will fight, stalling the probate process, and create expensive legal conflict. If a dispute arises between family members, our experienced probate attorneys will provide the counsel that our clients need. When it’s time to litigate a probate estate, our experienced team of probate lawyers are here to represent your interests and make sure that the probate estate is handled properly and distributed according to the terms of the law.

The Antonoplos & Associates group of Bowie probate attorneys most commonly assist clients with probate petitions and the supporting documents, petitions for appointment of personal representative, preparation of first & final account, notices to creditor, first and final accounting, and preparation of estate tax returns.

Trust Administration

Trust Administration is extremely useful if properly done, yet is difficult if the person going about this process is not experienced or knowledgeable on the subject. This is true for both beneficiaries and trustees to the trust. Thus, the combination of complex laws, the amount of assets, and the number of people involved in trust administration can be too much to handle for someone unexperienced in trust law. The responsibilities of the trustee to a trust is one of the most important things to know before appointing someone to this position or accepting this position yourself. As the trustee, you will be tasked with overseeing and distributing assets in the trust in an efficient and cost-effective manner. This is difficult to meet if someone is unfamiliar with financial management and the complex trust administration process. For more than two decades, Antonoplos & Associates groups of Bowie trust administration attorneys have advised trustees concerning any issues that stem from trust administration. Our guidance ensures that each of our clients distribute trust assets correctly and efficiently while minimizing associated tax burdens. Furthermore, our team of trust administration lawyers assists trust beneficiaries if they feel that the trustee to the trust did not complete their job correctly or took assets from the trust for self-serving purposes. Finally, our group of Bowie trust administration attorneys commonly assist clients with establishing, overlooking, and distributing assets from living trusts, testamentary trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, charitable remainder trusts, qualified domestic trusts, spendthrift trusts, special needs trusts, asset protection trusts, and Totten trusts.

Construction Law

Antonoplos & Associates Bowie Construction law attorneys have assisted construction clients throughout the entire industry. Our Bowie construction attorneys commonly work with property owners, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, and construction company owners. From our extensive experience with every type of construction company, our construction law practice understands the unique business needs for each of our construction clients. In many cases, the construction contracts we create for our clients will lead to the biggest business deals of their careers. However, we also routinely work with Bowie clients in the construction industry with litigation or alternative dispute resolution cases stemming from job site or workmanship disputes.

With over twenty years of experience working with every member of the Bowie construction industry, our boutique law firm offers a comprehensive list of construction litigation and alternative dispute resolution services. Outside of our litigation services, our Bowie construction attorneys represent clients before, during, and after mechanic’s lien and payment bond claims. Furthermore, Antonoplos & Associates construction law attorneys offer services focused on the negotiation and drafting of construction-industry contracts and related documents in both the private and public sectors. Our lawyers have significant experience in various industrial sectors negotiating and drafting building contracts, design-build contracts, construction management agreements, build-out and renovation agreements, contract specifications, tender documents, equipment purchase contracts, purchase orders, long-term maintenance agreements, performance and payment bonds, parental guarantees, letters of credit, project finance agreements and project close-out agreements.
