We handle matters in the following areas:
There is quite a bit of confusion among the public concerning the meaning of the term “estate planning.” It might be easiest to start off by explaining what estate planning is not. It is not exclusively the process of lessening taxes on the estates of people who are very wealthy, although that is the goal of many very wealthy people who seek estate planning attorneys.
Estate planning is for anyone who wants to make sure his or her wishes are carried out upon his or her death or disability. It includes the appropriate use of many estate planning tools, including but not limited to: living and irrevocable trusts, wills, advance directives (living wills), coordination of beneficiary designations, payable on death (POD) designations and transfer on death (TOD) designations, funding of revocable and irrevocable trusts, beneficiary and other deeds, bills of sale, and medical, general (financial) and special powers of attorney, with the ultimate goal being the effective and timely care of you and your loved ones in the event of your death or disability.
