Using A Variety Of Tools To Help Achieve Your Goals

Our lawyers can use a wide range of estate planning tools to help create a plan that is right for you and your family, including:

  • Wills: A will enables you to control how your assets are to be distributed after you have passed on.
  • Trusts: There are various types of trusts which enable to control your assets while you are still alive and which can help limit your tax liabilities.
  • Financial powers of attorney: A financial power of attorney enables you to name a trusted individual who can make financial decisions on your behalf should you ever be incapacitated or unable to make these decisions on your own.
  • Health care powers of attorney: Also referred to as a living will or a health care directive, these documents can ensure that your medical wishes will be followed if you are incapacitated or unable to make these decisions on your own.

“Canned” forms and do-it-yourself estate plans are plentiful. However, everyone’s situation is unique and these approaches cannot take into account your specific desires. Only having the assistance of skilled legal counsel can ensure that your plan is properly drafted and legally sound.
