Estate Planning

It’s a common misconception that estate planning isn’t necessary until much later in life, but the truth is— it’s never too early to start planning for the future. From young couples who have just welcomed their first child into the world to senior citizens who are considering moving to a nursing home, if you have assets that you want to protect and pass on, you need the assistance of an experienced estate planning lawyer in your corner who can guide you through the necessary steps to ensure you're making the best decisions for you and your family. I can give you and your family the reassurance and peace of mind by being there and supporting you through the entire process.

Creating an Estate Plan That is Right For You

During our first meeting, I sit down with you to listen and learn about your family, your assets and your vision for the future. Understanding this information will form the foundation for the customized estate plan I can create for you. Needless to say, a plan for an older couple will look a bit different from a plan I create for a young couple or couple with children from previous marriages. No matter what you're facing, I will work with you to create a plan that is right for your needs.

Tools That May Be Included in Your Estate Plan Include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Advance Health Care Directives

With these tools, we can create an estate plan designed to guide your assets to the proper beneficiaries, while also helping to avoid your estate getting caught in probate and minimize any estate taxes it might be subject to.
