Helping You Prepare for the Future with Estate Planning

Uncertainty abounds. It is often difficult to guess what will happen in your life tomorrow, let alone five years from now. This uncertainty makes it important to plan ahead for all contingencies.

By creating an estate plan, you can maintain control over important life decisions even if you become unable to express your wishes. Through durable powers of attorney (DPOA) and Healthcare Surrogate Designations you can ensure that you delegate decision-making abilities to the individuals of your choosing. With a living will, you can express your healthcare wishes in a legally-binding manner. Using wills and trusts, you can distribute your assets according to your wishes. We can help you with all of these documents, and more. Call us today.

Guiding You through the Probate Administration Process

If you have recently lost a loved one, there are many things that need to be done that can only be handled by an attorney. An experienced probate attorney can make the process as smooth and efficient as possible. Call us today to discuss your situation and determine how we can work together to help you.
