If you own a home, a car, or have some money in the bank, then you have an estate.
If you don't have a plan for how to distribute your estate assets when you're gone, then state laws will make those decisions for you. Don't let that happen.
Acting as your estate planner, our job is to ensure that all of your needs and desires are being met.
Our Estate Planning legal team can prepare all the necessary documents - including wills and trusts - needed to protect and distribute your assets before and after death for the beneficiaries of your choosing. In preparing your estate plan, we will consider all impactful issues - such as tax and administrative laws and regulations - and address them accordingly.
You should consider estate planning if you:
Want to control who inherits your property
Care about your healthcare treatment
Wish to avoid the public proceedings of a possible guardianship or probate
Have a minor or disabled child
Additionally, your plan may also include planning for the use of your assets for your care if you become unable to manage your affairs during your lifetime. In addition to wills and trusts, we routinely draft durable powers of attorney, health care surrogates, pre-need guardians, living wills and advanced medical directives.
