Estate Planning

When crafting estate plans, we listen and conscientiously follow client’s wishes for their estate. We believe that estate planning is important for not only the distribution of property but for well-being of the beneficiaries and clients. 

Estate planning is for everyone.

We all need a Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, and Advanced Health Care Directive.  No matter how large or modest, nearly every adult has an estate.  An estate consists of everything you own:  your house, retirement account, savings, car, furniture and other personal items.  Estate planning is not just for the wealthy or just for seniors.  Estate planning allows you to state your wishes and ensure that they are carried out.  

Now is the time to plan your estate.

No one likes to think about mortality or the possibility of being unable to make decisions independently.  Yet, it is important to make estate planning a priority for yourself and for your family.  Being prepared with a plan in advance to name who should receive the things you own when you die and how you want to manage your medical affairs if you become incapacitated can bring peace of mind to you personally but can also be a great benefit to your loved ones when your estate plan is in order.
