Estate Planning

Protect the people and things you care about through our Estate Planning solutions.

The Right Tool for the Job

No two clients are alike. Therefore, we build a custom Estate Plan in keeping with your unique needs and priorities. During client consultations, we advise which legal instruments may be suitable for you.

Below you can read about some of our most frequently recommended documents.

Wills

Wills can be used to appoint Guardians, gift property, nominate a Personal Representative, and move property into a Trust.

Trusts

Trusts avoid Probate Court, preserve money & assets, ensure privacy, and provide long-term support to Beneficiaries.

Health Care Power of Attorney

A Health Care Power of Attorney allows you to appoint an individual as your “Health Care Attorney-in-Fact.” If you are ever incapacitated, this person will act as your proxy in Health Care decisions.

Transfer Deeds & Beneficiary Deeds

Two ways for real estate to avoid Probate are by transferring property to your Trust or using a Beneficiary Deed.

General Power of Attorney

A General Power of Attorney (also called a Financial Power of Attorney) is a legal document that gives an individual (your “Attorney-in-Fact”) the authority to act on your behalf in various legal and financial scenarios.

Advance Health Care Directive

An Advance Health Care Directive is a document outlining your wishes concerning medical treatments you wish to receive (or withhold) in “end-of-life” scenarios.
