PROBATE & ESTATE PLANNING

Are your financial, business and personal affairs in order?
This is an important question that deserves an honest answer. Especially since the estate you have established over the years can be at risk of never reaching your loved ones if consumed by matters of probate court. All that can be avoided by getting the proper legal advice and setting your matters in order right now with a probate attorney.
Our law firm provides guidance in preparing Will and Trust Documents, Powers of Attorney and advance directives for health care and other important matters. These documents must be prepared properly to withstand attacks from outsiders or others that may interfere with carrying out your instructions in situations involving representatives or trustees, incapacity or death. Even simple matters, like appointment of an agent by using a Power of Attorney document can make routine day to day matters so much easier and convenient. Contact us today to discuss your needs.
