Complete Estate Planning:
A complete estate is more than just having a will. A trust can manage your assets, and a power an advance health care directive sets the parameters for medical intervention if you can't. This ensures that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.
Your estate plan provides the opportunity to distribute your property or make specific gifts, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A trust or will is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a trust or will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your pet — making decisions that might not reflect your desires.
Areas of Practice:
Protecting 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. It makes sense to have someone evaluate your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, and protecting your loved ones.
Updating your Estate Plan to make sure you intentions are honored
You may need to update your will throughout your life. Updating your will addresses changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
