    Wills & Trusts

    Creating a will or living trust is an essential part of estate planning, as it ensures that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. Our office understands that every client is unique and requires personalized attention. We take the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and work with you to create a customized estate plan that meets your needs and achieves your goals.

    Hiring an estate planning attorney before issues come up can save you time, money, and stress in the long run. By working with our office, you can ensure that your estate plan is created correctly the first time, avoiding costly mistakes and legal battles down the road.

    Control over distribution of assets

    An estate plan allows you to dictate how your assets are distributed after your passing, ensuring your wishes are carried out.

    Minimize taxes

    A well-crafted estate plan can help minimize estate taxes and protect your assets from unnecessary tax liabilities.

    Protect minor children

    If you have minor children, an estate plan can help ensure they are taken care of in the event of your passing. You can name a guardian for your children and create a trust to provide for their financial needs.

    Avoid probate

    A properly structured estate plan can help your loved ones avoid the time, expense, and stress of the probate process.

    Plan for incapacity

    An estate plan can include documents such as a durable power of attorney and a healthcare proxy, allowing you to choose who will make decisions for you if you become incapacitated.

    Preserve family harmony

    Without a clear estate plan, family members may end up in disputes over who gets what, which can lead to significant discord and strain on relationships. An estate plan can help minimize the chances of family conflict and promote harmony.

    Leave a legacy

    An estate plan can help you leave a legacy by making charitable contributions, establishing a scholarship fund, or supporting a cause that is important to you.

    Protect business interests

    If you own a business, an estate plan can help ensure its continued success after your passing. You can name a successor and create a plan for the smooth transfer of ownership.

    Peace of mind

    Perhaps the most important reason to create an estate plan is the peace of mind it can provide. Knowing that you have a plan in place for the future can give you and your loved ones a sense of security and comfort.

    For the expected and the unexpected.

    You want to be certain that your loved ones will never be helpless, and that includes the fluffy ones in your life. A pet trust is one tool to ensure that your little ones will always be cared for.

    Digital assets such as cryptocurrency are becoming more commonplace, but not everyone knows how to handle these new technologies. We can provide personalized, expert care to ensure that no assets are overlooked during the estate planning process.

    For those of us who have loved ones with a disability, many of us worry about how they will be cared for when we’re gone. The time to stop worrying, and to start planning, is now.
