Services


Trusts

Wills

No matter the size of your estate, Trusts allow you to continue providing for your family in the manner that you want to ensure that your wishes are respected.

Trusts are useful documents in a number of scenarios, such as when you have minor children, disabled loved ones, second marriages, own real estate in a different state, or own a business. Contact us to see if a Trust is appropriate for your situation.

Without a Will, how your property and assets are distributed is dictated by the rules of the state in which you live. 

Wills allow you to dictate not only where your assets go, but allow you to nominate a guardian to take care of your children.

 

Powers of Attorney

Living Wills & Healthcare Directives

To make sure your decisions on specific healthcare and life support are respected if you are ever incapacitated, we can assist you to name someone to manage your healthcare and make those decisions on your behalf. 

 

 

Protect yourself by appointing someone you trust to handle your financial or legal matters if you are ever unable to do so.

Powers of Attorney can be short-term, if you need to have someone sign documents and make financial decisions on your behalf temporarily, or long-term, for someone to manage your assets in case you are ever incapacitated.
