Securing your legacy
You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security can bring you comfort. Our attorneys thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.
Draft Your Trust, Living Will, and Last Will and Testament
Contemporary estate planning requires a determination of whether a living trust is right for you. Trusts avoid the expense and delay of probate, and provide an opportunity to distribute your property in accordance with your wishes upon your death. A will allows you to establish care for your children, as well as to distribute assets which are not held in trust. A living will sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated.
Durable Powers of Attorney
In the event of your incapacity, durable powers of attorney serve to give direction and authority to make decisions for you about your personal and financial affairs, and for medical care.
Appointment of guardianship
If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals. You can also make arrangements for your pets’ care in your will, including naming a guardian to take responsibility for your pets.
