  • Wills

  • Trusts

  • General Power of Attorneys

  • Living Wills/Advanced Directives  

  • Funeral Instructions

 

Your estate plan should not be left to a fill-in-the-blank form.

Power of Attorney

Power of Attorneys are becoming increasingly more important.  We can help determine which of these documents is right for you.

These documents include General and Durable Power of Attorneys, Medical or Health Care Power of Attorneys, Springing Power of Attorneys, and Specific Power of Attorneys. 

Asset Protection Planning and Medicaid Planning

Asset protection planning can help you protect yourself and your loved ones from costly mistakes, help you or a loved one qualify for Medicaid or other government funded services, and preserve more money in your estate.  We can take a holistic and comprehensive look at your estate, and guide you in preserving your assets. 

Probate/Estate Administration

Probate and estate administration is a complicated area of law, and we can help you through the process.   This may include locating assets and liabilities, completing all necessary filing requirements, filing and paying inheritance taxes, paying creditors, distributing assets to beneficiaries, and much more.  Before you start contacting banks, beneficiaries, and creditors, you should contact a probate attorney right away to make sure you don't make any timely or costly mistakes. 

Trusts and Trust Administration

Trusts are highly customized financial vehicles to help you control your assets and beneficiaries, maintain privacy, and/or protect a loved one. These may include Revocable Living Trusts, Irrevocable Living Trusts, Testamentary Trusts and Special Needs Trusts. 

Deed Preparation, Property Transfers and

Real Estate

We can assist you preparing a new deed and transferring your property, and in determining whether it is appropriate to transfer to your home now or at the time of your passing. 

In addition, we can assist your executor in selling your property after you pass away.
