We provide the legal services you need for your family and business. As you begin to deliberate who will inherit your property or care for your children should you be unable to do so, we can counsel you so that your estate plan represents your wishes for your family and the property you have worked hard to protect. And, if a loved one has passed, we can guide you through the probate process. If you’re starting a business or charity, we can guide you through the process from start to finish.
Do you have a Will, Trust, Power of Attorney or Health Care Directives? If not, it’s time to create an estate plan. Estate planning is about you making decisions about the most important things in your life – yourself and your family. Without an estate plan, what would happen to your assets if you pass away tomorrow? Or what would happen to you and your family? A well drafted estate plan can also ensure that your assets go to the right people, not the people selected by state law. Creating an estate plan is especially critical for parents with minor children as a Last Will and Testament is the only place you can name a guardian to care for your children if you are unable. An estate plan also gives direction regarding your wishes if something were to happen to you. By creating Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives you can ensure that the right people of your choosing can make your critical health care and financial decisions if you are unable.
