Vital Estate Planning Tools

Unique circumstances dictate the types of legal documents you will need for an estate plan. Our attorneys carefully review our clients' financial situations and debate personal goals before recommending a specific estate plan. An all-inclusive estate plan can include the following aspects:

  • Will – This is the foundation of most estate plans. A will specifies how your property and assets will be distributed upon your death and allows you to nominate a caretaker for your minor children (and dependent adults).
  • Trust – Trusts are financial tools used to instantaneously transfer assets to beneficiaries without going through probate. There are many types of trusts including revocable living trusts, irrevocable living trusts, and special needs trusts.
  • Living Will – Also known as an "advance directive," these wills are used to express your wishes for medical treatments that can extend your life.
  • Power of attorney These documents give legal power to a trusted individual to make medical and/or financial decisions for you if you are debilitated.

Prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and cohabitation agreements can also be used for estate planning. Our experienced attorneys are also skilled in preparation of these documents.
