A good estate plan can help protect your assets while you are alive, and assure that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes after your lifetime.  Well-planned documents provide comfort and peace of mind both to you and to your loved ones.

A good estate plan will enable you to:

  • minimize the impact of taxes on your estate
  • ensure appropriate care for minor children or children with disabilities
  • create a legacy for your favorite charities that reflects your values
  • establish an inheritance for a domestic partner who otherwise would not receive assets from your estate
  • ensure that your assets are appropriately managed in the event that you become unable to manage them yourself
  • name a health care representative to speak for you if you are unable to speak for yourself
  • provide guidance regarding your wishes for end-of-life care

We can assist you with:

  • Wills
  • Trusts (for managing assets during or after your lifetime, for benefiting charities, and/or for maintaining assets for minors or other beneficiaries with special needs)
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Health Care Directives
