We counsel our clients on all aspects of estate planning process including planning for the disposition of property using wills and trusts, planning required to address potential estate and gift tax issues, and planning in the event of incapacity. This could include the drafting of wills, revocable living trusts, dynastic and tax efficient trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care directives, and related documents. The creation of a Living or Revocable Trust will allow an estate to be privately administered after death.
The execution of a pour-over Will will further the effectiveness of a Living Trust. Additionally, traditional Wills can be prepared for those who do not wish to create a trust. Durable Powers of Attorney allow a person to appoint a person to assist them with financial matters if it becomes necessary. Health Care Directives allow a person to dictate their wishes regarding health care decisions should they become seriously ill or incapacitated.
