Within wills and estates, I focus on the following matters:
Wills - A last will and testament designates who should inherit your assets and is an essential part of any estate plan.
Living wills - Sometimes called "advance health care directives," these documents allow you to dictate the kind of care you would like to receive at the end of life or should you be incapacitated.
Powers of attorney- These documents name someone you trust to act on your behalf, should you become injured or ill.
Trusts- Testamentary trusts and living trusts enable you to determine when a loved -one receives an inheritance from you, and sometimes can be used to minimize estate taxes.
Probate and estate administration - If your loved one has passed away, I can help you navigate the often complex process of transferring assets to heirs, resolving any outstanding debts, and comply with legal requirements.
Estate Planning - What exactly is an estate plan, and what goes into making such a plan effective? Let me answer these questions for you.
