Wills

Creating a will is an important step in protecting your assets and your loved ones. A carefully drafted will can designate how your assets will be divided, who will take custody of your children and what will happen to your real estate investments. Our attorney will take the time to understand your specific needs so that we can draft a will that is compatible with your financial positioning, as well as your family's immediate and long-term needs.

Trusts

A trust designates a trustee, or a fiduciary to control and manage assets that are intended for a purpose and/or a beneficiary. There are many available trust options including irrevocable and revocable trusts, charitable trusts, qualified domestic trusts, special needs trusts, qualified personal residence trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts and living trusts. When you are considering a trust as an estate planning tool, we will provide you with the practical knowledge you need and the sound legal guidance that you want when making complex estate planning decisions.

Advance Health Care Directives

Outlining your health care wishes in the event you become incapacitated can prevent your family from having to make important and difficult medical decisions for you. It can also prevent prolonged litigation and ensure that your wishes are followed. If you are interested in learning more about advanced health care directives, living wills, and planning decisions for yourself or a loved one, please contact our office. We can provide the information and direction you need to make the best decisions for yourself and your loved ones.

Durable Powers of Attorney

A power of attorney grants a person the power to make financial decisions for another in the event they become physically or mentally incapacitated. If you are interested in creating a durable power of attorney for yourself or a loved one, we can assist you in making sure your rights and interests or those of your loved one are protected.
