Securing Your Legacy
Preserve your legacy, provide for your loved ones and gain peace of mind with smart estate planning strategies. An estate plan might consist of a will, powers of attorney, a health care directive, a revocable living trust, a Limited Liability Corporation, and more. We will thoroughly and thoughtfully analyze your needs and goals, explain the various estate planning tools available to you, and draft a complete plan tailored to your particular situation to protect your goals and adhere to your values. The estate plan we draft will seek to transfer your assets efficiently, minimize estate taxes and, where applicable, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes or even protect a beloved pet.
Take charge of your future through proper planning
Every adult needs an estate plan whether it include a will or a trust. An estate plan is how you plan for and protect your loved ones' futures when you are no longer there to do so.
Your estate plan provides the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. Estate planning documents are necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without an estate plan, your property is distributed to your relatives, even distant ones, according to statute. Moreover, without a will naming a guardian for a minor child, if both parents are deceased, a court may determine who cares for your children, administers their finances and makes important life decisions for them, ones which might not reflect your desires or values.
Our job as your attorneys is to put you in control of your future. Our attorneys have decades of experience drafting powers of attorney, wills and other estate planning documents that ensure your intentions are honored.
Updating Your Estate Plan
As your life changes, so might your estate plan. You should update your will or trust throughout your life. We draft codicils and trust amendments that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
Everyone needs an estate plan. Create yours by partnering with an experienced local attorney.
