Estate Planning

Everyone needs estate planning, even if you think you don’t have an ‘estate.’  If you want your assets and property to go to your intended beneficiaries, then estate planning is necessary to avoid the unintended consequences of lack of or poor planning.  Planning is also necessary to avoid a potential guardianship in the future.  Without advance directives, including a Durable Power of Attorney and Designation of Health Care Surrogate, a guardian may need to be appointed for you in the event of future incapacity. And contrary to the completely unfounded belief of some estate planning avoiders, creating a will does not accelerate the time of impending demise. 

Act today to make sure that your wishes are carried out and that you do not end up involved in an expensive and intrusive guardianship or a situation where your intended beneficiaries are not the actual recipients of your assets after your death.  We can help you try to keep things as simple as possible, when possible.  And if your situation is complex, then we can advise you of your options and help you create and implement a plan that will serve to accomplish your goals and provide you and your family with peace of mind.
