Estate Planning

It is so very unfortunate that many people do no estate planning.  What’s more, many more people have an outdated estate plan, or an incomplete estate plan that was quickly cobbled together utilizing questionable “templates” available online.

The reality is that an estate plan can be challenging.  Some people find the idea of this planning to be difficult emotionally, and it can be even more difficult when you are trying to speak to loved ones about this topic.  Many individuals would rather keep their old, outdated estate plans, or try to draft their own estate plan from the internet, instead of trying to find reliable, cost effective legal assistance. We can help you in your estate planning endeavors.

A complete estate plan often consists of a will, one or more trusts, powers of attorney, designations of guardianship, and other documentation regarding incapacity, anatomical gifts, funeral service, and other matters.  We understand that estate planning is a very personal experience and we strive to ensure that the testator’s wishes are accurately expressed.

Practice areas include:

  • Wills and Trusts
  • Planning for Incapacity

BUSINESS CONTINUATION PLANNING

An often overlooked part of estate planning is business continuation planning.  Business continuation planning is estate planning for your business.   It provides piece of mind knowing that, if something were to happen to you, your business can keep going without creating an extra burden for your family.  We assist small business owners in creating business continuation plans that protect both their business and their loved ones.
