Estate planning is a necessity for everyone, regardless of age, wealth, health or the existence of dependents.  Everyone over age 18 needs to have a plan in place that will allow for the designation of a guardian to care for minor children and the allocation of assets in the event of death. Equally as important is having a plan in place for a trusted person to make medical and financial decisions in the event of incapacitation.  If you cannot make your medical and financial decisions for any reason, wouldn’t you rather rely on a trusted individual (named by you) than a court?  Furthermore, medical preferences can be spelled out in detail, so that loved ones aren’t left to agonize over difficult decisions.

Our estate planning practice areas include:

Wills
Trusts
Guardianship of Minor Children
Financial Powers of Attorney

Medical Powers of Attorney
Advanced Medical Directives (“Living Will”)
HIPAA issues
Declarations of Disposition of Last Remains
