Estate Planning

Wills

Don’t leave anything up to chance. No one can express your wishes and desires better than you. We can help you customize the last will and testament that will guide your family and friends through the process at a time when you cannot. Save your family time, stress and money. Avoid controversy and make clear how you want your assets to be disposed of. If you have minor children, a will can provide important recommendations to the court about the care of children after a parent’s death and whom the parents select to serve as guardian and conservator in the event of their death. This is an important issue that all parents should consider thoughtfully and take steps to address.

Unfortunately, without a will, state law determines who will receive your assets. In many cases, the way the law would distribute your assets is not the way you would want them to be distributed. A will ensures your assets are distributed to those people or charities you wish to benefit. So don’t chance it. Allow us to help you create the document that will speak for you when you are gone.

Advance Directive for Healthcare

We can prepare an Advance Directive for Healthcare that will express your desires in the event you are injured or sick and cannot speak for yourself. Our attorneys will sit down with you and go every detail and discuss all of your options. Don’t wait until an emergency happens in your life. Plan now: protect yourself and your family.

Power of Attorney

When you are ready to designate a responsible person to act in your place, we can help you. Power of Attorney designations are only valid while you are living. They can be very helpful to someone who is out of town often, ill or incapacitated. We will draft your power of attorney document and carefully explain the powers that come with it.

Beyond helping clients draft estate documents and prepare for the future, our Attorneys are able to assist with other probate matters such as Guardianship Petitions, Conservatorship Petitions, Will Contests, Probating a Will, Letters Testamentary and Letters of Administration.
