Estate Planning - Wills and Trusts

ESTATE PLANNING SOLUTIONS
We offer our clients exceptional legal representation in a wide range of estate planning issues. The scope of our practice includes:
A will is a legal document that allows you to designate who your assets and property will go to after you die.
A trust is a powerful estate planning tool that can help you set aside money for a loved one.
A living trust (also known as a grantor trust, revocable trust or inter vivos trust) is created during your lifetime and capable of being amended. It also enables you to avoid probate, unlike a simple will.
A power of attorney allows you to put a trusted friend or family member in charge of your affairs if you become incapacitated.
A health care power of attorney allows you to designate someone you trust to make decisions over your medical treatment if you become incapacitated.
A living will is a document that allows you to make decisions over life-prolonging medical treatment.
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Affordability Act): If you have questions about the privacy of your medical records, we can help.
A guardianship gives someone the legal rights and responsibilities of caring for a minor or disabled adult.
If you have lost a loved one, an attorney can help you with all of the legal complications involved in identifying and distributing assets to the beneficiaries.
Our attorneys will work with you personally to understand you estate planning goals and to help make them a reality.
