Securing your legacy
You’ve worked hard for your family, and knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security will bring you great comfort. Because of this, we will thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.
Drafting your advance directive and last will and testament
A will is essential at every stage of your life. We will prepare an advance directive (or living will) that sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated. This will assure that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.
When we prepare your will and testament, it will provide the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. This is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. Even if you want everything to go to your family, if you die without a last will and testament the court will determine how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your pet – making decisions that might not reflect your desires
We will draft valid wills that ensure your intentions are honored.
Leaving a plan to protect what matters most
When you want to do more with your property than just bequeath it to the individuals in your life, we are here to work with you and design a plan to make your wishes a reality. We will prepare trust instruments to protect your assets and ensure that they are there for the long haul to always take care of the people who matter most. Whether you want to avoid probate, better manage your property, or ensure controls are in place so your estate is able to take care of your loved ones for years to come, we will work to make sure the people and things that matter to you are always protected and taken care of.
Adapting to your life
As your life changes, so can your estate plan. When you work with us to update your will periodically throughout life, you will make sure that your intentions are honored in all circumstances. Our attorneys draft valid codicils and trust amendments that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
Ensuring the proper guardians
For your minor children, we make certain your estate plan reflects your decisions about their future care. Naming a guardian is especially important if you are a single parent, but even married couples must consider the remote possibility of perishing in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint one whose decisions may be in conflict with your parenting goals. We will also work with you to make arrangements for your pets’ care in your will, even naming a guardian to assume ownership.
