Our Estate Planning Practice

When you hire us, we will start by gathering as much information as we can about your financial situation, as well as your estate planning objectives. We help you clearly understand the different tools available to you, such as:
  • Wills : A will provides specific instructions regarding distribution of your assets, payment of final debts and taxes, and the care of any minor children.
  • Powers of attorney : With a power of attorney, you can designate another person as your attorney-in-fact, with limited or general powers to act on your behalf.
  • Living wills or health care proxies : A health care proxy will allow you to designate someone to make medical decisions for you, if you cannot. A living will lets you specify the types of treatment you do or do not wish to have.
  • Trusts : A trust can shield your property from probate, and facilitate the immediate distribution of assets.
