Estate Planning

Estate planning is a very individual process that protects your family and assets in your absence. The amount of your assets often determines the complexity of your estate plan.


There are several different trusts that can be used to protect your family/blended family, minor children, pets, property and for tax minimization. Trusts are often established for the benefit of minor children. The trustee is responsible for managing your children’s inheritance and distributing it wisely over time.

Power of Attorney

You can determine who is able to make financial decisions for you if you are incapacitated due to a serious illness, accident or other disability and can’t make them yourself.


It’s best to plan ahead to determine the disposition of your assets and implement your wishes. A well drafted will can avoid a contentious probate.


Who will be responsible for raising your children in your absence? Planning ahead now can avoid family disputes later.

Advance Directive

This document specifies who can make health care decisions for you if you are unable to make them yourself. By completing the document, you determine the type and extent of health care you desire and communicate that to your health care representative. Your health care representative will direct your health care based on your stated wishes.
