Estate Planning Lawyers

Estate Planning

With the proper estate planning, you can ensure your assets will pass peacefully to the heirs you designate, and in the thoughtful manner you prescribe.

Will and Trust Lawyers

Estate planning is about deciding what you want to do with your property during and after your lifetime, deciding what mechanisms best allow you to achieve those goals, and then writing the plan down in clear, legal, and unmistakable terms. Planning documents include:

Wills, which let you designate your heirs, establish guardianships for your children; describe funeral preferences, and name the executor who will manage the transfer of your estate property to your heirs.

Trusts, which are powerful and diverse tools for imposing requirements and conditions concerning your estate and/or which can aid in tax saving benefits during your lifetime. We assist with many kinds of trusts, including revocable and irrevocable trusts and testamentary trusts.

Guardianships, to protect loved ones

• General, financial, and/or medical Powers of Attorney

Health care directives and living wills

• Documents designating gifts to charities or loved ones

In our estate planning services, we emphasize clarity for your heirs and the minimization of taxes, both to you and to eventual heirs.
