We handle all aspects of estate planning, including the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Advance Health Care Directives, and Powers of Attorney. A properly prepared estate plan will generally avoid the significant attorney fees and personal representative fees associated with probating an estate. An Advance Health Care Directive permits you to make certain medical decisions in advance of any incapacity, as well as appointing a person you trust to make decisions for you in the event you are not able to. Similarly, your Power of Attorney for financial matters will allow you to designate a person you trust to execute documents on your behalf during any period of incapacity.
