Protect Your Family & Your Legacy
One of the greatest gifts you can leave your family is a comprehensive estate plan that addresses your personal wishes and end of life choices. An estate plan is comprised of several important legal documents that prepare your loved ones for any sudden medical emergencies and your passing. By including a will and personalized trust protections in your estate plan, you can even protect your assets from the probate process and guarantee that they are properly distributed to your intended beneficiaries.
Your customized estate plan can include:
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts
- Advanced healthcare directive
- Durable power of attorney for healthcare
- Durable financial power of attorney

The Benefits of a Personalized Estate Plan
Only an experienced lawyer can help you develop a comprehensive estate plan accurately reflects your personal needs and legal objectives. Many people don’t realize that online “Do It Yourself” guides don’t take specific state laws and individual circumstances into account. Your personalized estate plan needs to reflect the fluctuating state of your assets, your medical history, and your unique family dynamics.
By working with our law firm, you can draft a thorough estate plan that dictates:
- Your legal beneficiaries
- The correct distribution of your assets and property
- Which designated guardian will care for your minor children
- Which designated representative will care for your special needs relatives
- Who has the authority to manage your finances if you’re incapacitated
- Who has the authority to make medical care decisions on your behalf
- Your end-of-life decisions
The Benefits of Updating Your Estate Plan
Anyone can benefit from having an estate plan, regardless of age or wealth. However, it’s inadvisable to complete your estate plan and then lock it away for decades. In fact, you should review the contents of your estate plan every few years or after any significant life event. The goal of estate planning, after all, is to protect your personal choices and your financial assets. You may need to update or modify your estate planning documents to account for the important life changes you experience. For example, any new assets or property that are left out of your estate plan may suffer the consequences of the probate process.
