Estate Planning

Estate Planning - Wills and Trusts

Proper estate planning is important for many reasons: It may assure that your loved ones are taken care of after your death; it may assure that you are in control of decisions over your health and finances when and if you should become disabled.

If you need help with a will, trust or other estate planning issue, we can help. We have the skill and experience to make your estate planning goals come to fruition.


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.

Testamentary trusts

A trust is a powerful estate planning tool that can help you set aside money for a loved one.

Living trusts

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.

Durable power of attorney

A power of attorney allows you to put a trusted friend or family member in charge of your affairs if you become incapacitated.

Health care power of attorney

A health care power of attorney allows you to designate someone you trust to make decisions over your medical treatment if you become incapacitated.

Living wills

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.

Guardianship of minors and disabled adults

A guardianship gives someone the legal rights and responsibilities of caring for a minor or disabled adult.

Probate/estate and trust administration

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.
