Estate Planning

Our firm is about building long-term relationships with our clients and there are fewer more intimate experiences in an attorney-client relationship than estate planning. An estate plan is important in determining how your assets, property, debts, medical care and family obligations are managed after you die, or should you become incapacitated. Estate planning is about one thing: peace of mind - for you and your family. No estate is too small or too large to benefit from a sound, well-thought out plan. We will work with you to create a sound estate plan to protect your wealth and your family. You should not leave your family with the uncertainty of dying intestate (without a will). Yet, Estate Planning is more than creating a Will, without creating a comprehensive estate plan you are leaving everything to chance for your family. Your property may end up with unintended recipients (or the government  and accrue unnecessary fees, taxes, and probate costs.

However, together, we can avoid that uncertainty with a comprehensive estate plan. There are many planning instruments to ensure your estate goes to its intended beneficiaries. Even if you die without heirs, an estate plan will allow you to direct your estate in a way of your choosing to charities, colleges, churches or in any way you see fit, or it will be transferred to the state. We will work together to take away the uncertainty of intestacy by drafting documents such as a last will and testament, revocable and irrevocable trusts, certificates of trust, living wills, powers of attorney, guardianship for minor children, and more.
