Estate Planning

Everyone should have a valid will in place in order to direct how their property should be distributed upon their death.  Often, there are other matters that also need to be addressed in a will, such as guardians for minor or disabled children.  If a person dies without leaving a will, their property will be distributed to those persons that are named in the intestate succession statute of the decedent’s state.  Sometimes, such as in the case of blended families, this can lead to surprising results.  This firm has experience with the following types of projects:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Financial Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Directive to Physicians (also known as a living will)
  • Estate and Gift Tax Planning
  • Partition Agreements (used to opt out of the normal community property laws)
