We don't believe in a one sized fits all approach. We will assist you with comprehensive and individualized legal advice on a wide range of estate planning issues.
A properly prepared Will allows you to direct where your property will go after your death. It can save a great deal of time, expense, and stress for your family and loved ones during a time of grief. A Will also allows you to name your personal representative who will represent your estate after your death and carry out your wishes.
It's important to have a Will, not just to ensure that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes, but also to help minimize tax consequences and estate expenses.
The best time to plan your estate is now.
Many people don't realize that a Will is of no legal effect until you have passed away. While you are living, your interests can only be protected by a personal representative who you name to act on your behalf in the event that you become physically or mentally incapable of handling your own affairs.
A proper estate plan must include Powers of Attorney.
We will assist you in preparing Powers of Attorney for property and for personal care to ensure that your affairs are properly handled in the event of your incapacity.
Estate administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased's assets.
We will help you to avoid legal problems and to ensure that your legal obligations as estate trustee are fulfilled in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
