Estate Planning Services
We will review your assets and help you determine how to provide for your loved ones in the event of your death or incapacitation. We can arrange precise plans for the distribution and transfer of property. We can also help minimize probate, attorney fees, and inheritance and estate taxes.
Powerful estate planning legal tools for the managing of your estate and the providing of care for your loved ones include:
- Trusts, durable powers of attorney, wills and healthcare living wills (advance medical directives). These instruments can ensure that your wishes regarding your assets and medical care are carried out in detail. Using these tools, you can appoint individuals responsible for overseeing the execution of your decisions.
- Guardianships. In legal guardianships, individuals use the probate courts to arrange for their care in the event that they become unable to care for themselves.

Estate planning is not just for the middle-aged and elderly. Having a will at a younger age can ensure your children are cared for in the event of your untimely death or incapacity. We can discuss your financial and familial needs and help you plan for the future of you and your young family.
