Estate Planning

An estate plan puts you in control of end-of-life decisions. Essential for adults of all ages, it provides for your loves ones and ensures that your property is distributed according to your wishes. It’s also a crucial component of your overall financial plan, and can help your heirs avoid paying substantial taxes and fees. Below you’ll find more information about our specific Estate Planning services:

Estate Administration

When a loved one passes, it’s a stressful and emotional time. We help you create order from chaos – guiding you through the probate process, serving as an advisor, trustee or executor (gathering assets, paying outstanding debts/taxes and distributing property to the heirs) and easing the burden on your family.

Incapacity Planning

If you are unable to make decisions about your finances or medical treatment due to age, health or special needs, a living will or health care directive will communicate your wishes. Similarly, a Power of Attorney appoints another person to act as your agent in managing your financial affairs. Guardianships and conservatorships may also be a good option.
