Our Estate Planning Services
We understand that everyone has unique needs, which is why once you sit down with our firm, we will assess your specific familial and financial situation, attempt to understand your estate planning goals, and develop a comprehensive strategy to help achieve those goals. We will listen carefully and explain your options so you can make informed decisions. Some of the various estate planning tools and documents we will consider are as follows:
- Wills: Wills allow you to express your wishes regarding the distribution or transfer of your assets after you die. A will also lets you name a guardian to care for your minor children, should both parents pass away untimely.
- Trusts: A trust is essentially a detailed set of instructions expressing your wishes for the management of assets during your lifetime and the transfer of those assets at your passing. When established in conjunction with a will, a trust may allow for the distribution of an estate without having to go through the probate process. Some of the most common types of trusts include revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, charitable trusts, and more. Our firm can explain each of these to you and ensure you choose a trust that best fits your specific circumstances.
- Powers of Attorney: When you create a power of attorney, you are essentially appointing a trusted individual to make certain critical financial and medical decisions on your behalf, should you ever become incapacitated or otherwise unable to make those decisions on your own.
- Advance Health Care Directives: Also known as living wills; these allow you to express your wishes regarding end-of-life decisions, such as whether you would prefer to receive life-sustaining treatments or procedures.
