Knowledgeable Representation In Setting Up Your Estate Plan

Deciding what will happen to your home, your financial assets and your personal possessions after your passing can be a difficult process. The decisions you make regarding your estate determine how your property will be divided and what estate taxes will need to be paid after your passing. And if you do not take the time to put together a well-thought-out estate plan, a court may instead divide the property for you.

As it is important that you have control over the manner in which your estate is divided, the services of an experienced estate planning attorney are invaluable. We provide an estate plan tailor-made to meet your circumstances. With careful attention to detail, we can draft a trust or will so there is no depletion of your assets due to expenses and taxation.

Take Control Of Your Assets

Estate planning concerns much more than the simple creation of a will. It involves understanding the nature of your property, looking at the tax consequences of transference of assets and property and making certain any documentation you provide complies with legal requirements.

  • Reviewing and drafting of wills

  • Reviewing and preparing business, education, retirement and other trusts
  • Drawing up of health care and general powers of attorney
