Planning For Your Tomorrow

We will work with you to prepare all necessary estate planning documents. Some examples of estate planning documents we use in our practice include but are not limited to the following:

  • A Last Will and Testament gifts your property to your beneficiaries through the probate process.
  • A Living Trust gifts your property to your beneficiaries through a trust administration process and avoids probate.
  • A Durable Power of Attorney appoints someone you trust to make financial decisions for you as your fiduciary.
  • A Designation of Health Care Surrogate appoints someone you trust to make medical decisions on your behalf as your fiduciary.
  • A Living Will sets out in advance the level of life-saving medical care you would want if you become incapacitated and unable to communicate with your doctors.

With our help, you will have a plan that fits you and your family best. And as time goes on and circumstances change, we will be there to amend your plan.
