Why Is Estate Planning Important?

Creating a comprehensive estate plan is one of the most important things that you can do for both yourself and your loved ones. A strong estate plan tells your family how you want your assets to be distributed, so no one has to guess what your wishes are.

There are numerous tools available for creating an estate plan that meets your needs. When you work with us, our estate planning attorneys will listen to your goals and concerns and explain which would work best for you. We can assist you in creating:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Living Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Guardianships

Who Needs An Estate Plan?

Just about everyone can benefit from an estate plan. You don't have to be wealthy or have children to require an estate plan. Estate planning is also about communicating your wishes to your loved ones. Through an estate plan, you can answer tough questions about how you want your end-of-life medical care to be handled or whom you want your savings to go to, so your family doesn't have to decide for you.

Guiding You Through The Probate Process

Probate is the process by which a will is validated by the court before assets are administered. We can assist you in navigating the court process, even if your loved one died intestate - or without a will.

Our experienced lawyers can take on the process of probate and estate administration for you. We understand that it is a lot to handle, especially if you recently lost a loved one. We can ensure the process goes smoothly, so you can start moving forward.
