Your Estate Plan Should Be as Unique as You Are

Our law firm represents people of varying levels of wealth. Whether you have a modest home and assets or have amassed significant wealth over a lifetime, your estate plan should reflect your wishes for all that you have worked for. We establish original estate planning documents as well as revise existing documents. As your life changes through births, deaths, retirement, illnesses and other events, so may your estate plan.

In your consultation, we can talk about your need for estate planning documents such as the following:

  • Wills: state your wishes regarding how property and assets should be distributed upon your death
  • Trusts: can be revocable or irrevocable, gifting money to people and/or organizations
  • Powers of attorney: give decision-making authority to a trusted relative or friend in the event you are no longer able
  • Guardianships: can be established for minor children as well as adults with special needs

Our law firm also offers assistance in probate and estate administration, the process of finalizing the affairs of a decedent’s estate.
