An estate plan is about more than planning for death. It is about planning for whatever comes your way during your lifetime.  A solid estate plan adds up to a lot of peace of mind for you and your family.

Our Estate Planning Lawyers provide guidance in preparing Will and Trust Documents, Powers of Attorney and advance directives for health care and other important matters. These documents must be prepared and executed properly to withstand attack from outsiders or others that may interfere with carrying out your instructions in situations involving representatives or trustees, incapacity or death.

You may think that you don’t have enough property, investments, or money to necessitate making an estate plan, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people are familiar with a will, which assigns your assets to recipients you’ve designated. A trust is an alternative to a will, which allows for the swift transfer of assets while specifying how to distribute your estate. A power of attorney and a living will are essential documents that designate who will make financial and medical decisions for you if you’re unable to do so yourself. A written plan helps to eliminate problems and we can prepare a comprehensive estate plan tailored to your specific needs.
