Estate Planning and Probate

Our Estate Planning and Probate practice involves visiting with our clients about their wishes concerning the management and distribution of their estates and preparing the appropriate documents to insure that these wishes are fulfilled. A typical estate plan involves more than creating a Will. It also addresses planning to make sure the client's wishes regarding health care treatment are known and followed, and seeing that the appropriate documents are in place should our client ever become incapacitated. We will walk you through the estate planning process to accomplish your goals by utilizing various legal strategies which can include, but are not limited to:

  • Will Preparation
  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Medical Power of Attorney
  • Directive to Physicians and Family or Surrogates ("living wills")
  • HIPAA Release
  • Structuring of Business Entities
  • Asset Protection
  • Creation of Trusts

Our practice also includes helping clients through the probate process after a loved one has passed away. The probate process does not have to be a dreaded task. An attorney can help make the process as simple as possible. Our Firm represents executors and administrators through the process of probating a will, distributing assets in accordance with the decedent’s wishes and various other probate matters.
