Estate Planning

It is important that every person that owns assets makes sure that he or she has an estate plan and that it will do what he or she wants it to do.   It is especially important to have an estate plan when one owns titled assets like real estate or stocks.

We have extensive experience with advising clients concerning estate planning.  We have drafted hundreds of wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney and medical powers of attorney which help our clients effect their estate planning needs.  We have drafted all of the following instruments:

  • Revocable living trusts for individuals and married couples (note: a properly drafted trust for a married couple can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal and state estate taxes and thousands of dollars in state probate fees)
  • Amendments to trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Children’s trusts
  • Wills for single and married persons
  • Codicils (amendments to wills)
  • Durable Powers of Attorney (Gives someone the authority to sign your name and carry out legal transactions for you)
  • Medical Powers of Attorney (Gives someone authority to make your medical decisions when you cannot)
  • Bankruptcy
